Best quality & performance VR Player settings?

by mberajas » Mon Dec 19, 2016 10:17 pm

Hi I need somebody to help me! I have spent very long time testing and looking the way to improve my video's quality. I was convinced myself that I was making something wrong in the filming, until I saw my product with a regular player like windows player, the resolution looks really great, but when I play the video with GoPro VR Player the quality goes down a lot! I know that is not the same, but may be there is something to do to improve it! Is there something to do?

Hi

To get a good quality in GoPro VR player/Oculus the resolution of the video should be 4K or higher

For current version 2.1 of the player, here are the recommendations (and also automatic choices made by the player) :

- on Windows 10 without HMD, I will recommend to use WMF video backend. It benefits of efficient hardware decoding.

- on Windows 10 with HMD, I will recommend to use VLC backend with hardware decoding activated (you have to enable it manually in player preferences). If you encounter issues, you can try to deactivate VLC hardware decoding or to force WMF backend, but be aware that you will not benefit of WMF hardware decoding in this configuration.

Hello,

HMD means Head-Mounted Display (Oculus, Vive, GearVR)

Best,
Olivier

Thanks Olivier, So what can I do to improve the image quality? The specific problem that I have is that the image looks unshaped, the distant images looks blurred. I followed the tutorial directions and set up my GoPro cams with lower sharp, is this correct? may it be the reason because my resolution is not nice?

Hi,

Have you tried my colleagues's recommendations?
Playing with the Protune settings can improve the quality, depending on the weather condition, luminosity, etc) but also the framerate! Only choose 48fps as a strict minimum!
The better choice is 1440p @ 60 fps (5.5K video file) or 960p @ 120fps (4K video file).

Cheers,
Olivier

Large differences in start time when synchronizing?

Why could it be that I have very large differences in start time when synchronizing?
