Headset access to playback controls and switching videos

by Alex4D » Tue Aug 30, 2016 6:12 pm

As far as I can tell it isn't possible to control playback (rewind to start, pause, play) or choose videos from within a headset. When demoing videos for people, it would be very helpful to be able to this, also to be able to choose a different video to play without extracting the phone from its headset.

It is possible that the two headsets I've tried have buttons that don't interact with GoPro VR Player.

Do I need to wait for a software update or have I missed something.

I expect to set playing videos to loop. I suggest a quick update would allow a single button press in a headset would either pause and then play a video, or rewind it to the start - based on a Setting.

Hello,

That kind of interface is available with the Oculus only, not for mobiles: http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/vie ... umentation
HMD for mobiles are very basics and do not propose any control button, except the GearVR only compatible with Samsung mobiles and uses Samsung dedicated apps.

Kind regards,
Olivier

Thanks for the reply. In case you'd like to see a 'one-click' UI for playback control that would be useful, check out the iOS YouTube app.
