Is Vive/Occulous or WMR support coming?

elkifelkif Posts: 6Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I have both a Vive Headset (steam)... and a Lenovo Explorer (WMR). Why did PLEX decide to only support Google's daydream with the VR platform? I would think that many of us have "beefy" computers running our plex servers. That would lead to many of us having significant computers/clients that have the availability to use VR. Just Curious... I am not dogging on the Daydream platform, however I have several hundreds of dollars invested in the PC VR platform. I know I am not alone in this question.

FYI... I would have preferred to make this a private question to support, as opposed to a public question that begs the start of a flame war.

I would also ask: How does one send a private message to support?

    The FAQ mentions that other platforms are under consideration but don't expect any timelines or platform commitments. Daydream may just be an easier migration from the Android functionality as a start, plus it's a multi-vendor solution - we've all been on the short end of that stick when the initial release is on a platform we don't own.

    Yeah we can't say anything at the moment beyond what's already in the FAQ, sorry.

    Regarding reaching the support team directly, I think they prefer users to post on the public forums, even if it leads to a flame war :smile:

    The side benefit of public requests is that the Gear VR request turned from one guy wanting a new platform to a bunch of people agreeing they'd like to see it as well as a workaround involving a third party controller.

    This is amazing - really excited to see this. I'm really hoping to see it in Vive some day. Love Plex and the whole plex dev team. Amazing work gang. Keep it coming.

    I have a Vive and I'd also like to see this support added. Its good on the Google Darydream VR, but the battery and heat issues are not good enough for watching movies reliably

    but the battery and heat issues are not good enough for watching movies reliably

    Just curious, what phone is that on? Do you experience similar issues with other VR apps or is only with Plex?

    Gaming and videos in general will eat your battery. This should be on VIVE, Oculus, WMR.

    We definitely want to support more platforms in the future, but can't provide any additional details at the moment.

    +1 would love it on SteamVR or general Vive support.

    Looks like they just added Oculus Go support, for the 10s of people who have them right now. Man I would love some Vive or OCulus Rift support.

    +1 Vive.
    I'm sure steamVR support has to be in-progress, as that'd work for Vive, Oculus, and WMR.

    It's on a Google Pixel. All VR apps (Netflix VR for example).
