What is a 360 video?

360 video is a spherical video format which, when viewed on a virtual reality headset, gives viewers the illusion of ‘being there’. It's generally a non-interactive format and it can be seen in 2D or 3D.

The best 360 experience is on a VR headset such as Oculus Go, Gear VR, Google Daydream or the higher-end Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Making a film which works well for headset viewing requires a different approach to storytelling, editing and cameras.

Is VR bad for your eyes?

Research shows wearing VR headsets can cause eye strain, eye discomfort, eye fatigue and blurred vision. It is recommended that you take a break for every 30 minutes of VR time, even if you don’t feel the need. When used properly, VR is safe to use and can help improve vision and even help you get over things like motion-sickness.

Why are YouTube VR videos blurry?

One of VR’s greatest hurdles is video quality (resolution). 360-degree videos are frequently plagued by choppy frame rates and pixelated images. Despite 4K UHD being heralded as a next-generation recording format, it’s a common misconception that it yields similar results for 2D and 3D.

Also, your VR videos might be blurry because you’ve only used very low-end VR headsets (Google Cardboard or similar), that have poor lens quality, or you ran into an eyebox problem. VR’s future is looking good, and if we will again have a quarantine in which the whole world is trapped in their homes, we will need a good VR so we can leave our house through virtual reality.

What's the minimum recommended resolution for VR videos?

Regarding resolution, we know that videos for 360 need to be 4K minimum.

As 360 players wrap an equirectangular video into a sphere, the viewer is only going to see a small section of that video. At 4K UHD, we end up viewing a window of about 1.3K resolution.

Having a master resolution of 1920×1080 HD results in about 370-pixels of data, which is two thirds of SD. Far too soft to be comfortable or watchable in our opinion.

8K resolution videos would be ideal, rendering down to around 2K window which is equivalent to the HD images general audiences have gotten used to. However 8K is currently not viable. When mobile phones can play 8K video smoothly, then this format will be worth attaining, however right now 8K is only available on youtube and very few have the capability of streaming and watching at such a high resolution.

Do I need to pay to download VR and 360 Videos?

As we explained in our article, there is no need to pay to download a virtual reality and 360 degree video. You can download YouTube videos in VR and 360 degrees, using the same software that you use to download your videos. It’s quick and easy, and you don’t need to pay a dime to do it!
