NEW FEATURE: Bigscreen's Built-in VIDEOPLAYER to watch your own video files, with friends!
By Bigscreen Team • Issue #27 • View online
We are SO EXCITED to announce our latest launch of our brand new free feature: the Bigscreen videoplayer.
This new videoplayer lets you watch your own video files, in any of our virtual environments (movie theaters, campfires, space station, etc.), and watch videos together with friends!

Watch videos together with friends! If your friends also have the same video file, Bigscreen will automatically sync the video so you can watch the video together! Bigscreen doesn’t stream/share the video file, so your friends will need the files on their own device.
The videoplayer works across all supported headsets: Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, HTC Vive, Valve Index, all SteamVR headsets, and all Windows Mixed Reality headsets!
Watch 3D Videos in VR
The videoplayer supports 2D & 3D movies (Side-by-side 3D or Over-under 3D), and it supports most of the common file types.
Use your Windows PC, multiple monitors, alongside the videoplayer. Bigscreen already lets you use your Windows PC in VR and support multiple monitors. The videoplayer can be used alongside your Windows PC desktop screens to allow multi-tasking capabilities. Note: multi-tasking currently works best on PC VR, as Quest/Go mobile headsets are more limited today.
This videoplayer doesn’t yet support any 180/360 content, and we don’t support DLNA/Plex yet, but we’re considering those features.
