VR Files & Your Oculus Device

So, you’ve gone and done it. You’ve just spent a small fortune purchasing the Oculus Rift and, very likely, a new PC to run it, and you just can’t wait to jump into your first hardcore VR porn experience! That’s great news and I for one am excited for you. The Oculus Rift DK2 is pretty much the leading headset on the market and has been for some time. Its amazing visuals, low latency, expansive software and on-point head-tracking make it pretty much my favorite headset.

Scenes Won’t Play?

So, you’ve downloaded your brand-new hardcore 3D VR scene and you place the file in your Oculus library, but it won’t play! Cue frustration and major disappointment. It’s okay, though I’ve been there myself and I know how distressing this can be. The good news is that I know just how to get those files playing and it’s not hard at all.

Rename the Files

The trick is in renaming the file so that the Oculus will recognize it as a 3D 180° scene. Between the scene title and the the .MP4 extension insert the following: _180x180_3dh. And you’re done! That wasn’t so hard, though not exactly intuitive. I had to scour the internet for a good long while before I found this trick, which by the way also works on other headsets. I’ll admit that this process is somewhat inconvenient. It would be better if it just downloaded and played, but it’s something we have to do for the time being, as the Oculus just doesn’t support adult content, nor do any of the other headsets for that matter.

Stream to Your Oculus, Too

If you’re interested in streaming scenes instead of downloading them, that’s easy too. First off, make sure your internet connection is solid. Noting sucks harder than a buffering 3D scene when you’re trying to convince yourself that it’s really you who’s being ridden like Seattle Slew. Second, you have to download a VR app. By now there are several you can use to stream directly to your viewer. Some sites have developed their own and even Pornhub has one. Once you have the app download and installed, playing the scenes is as easy as 1-2-3. So there you have it, folks, how to play VR files, streaming or downloading, on your Oculus Rift. Keep in mind that these tips will also work for some of the other headsets.
