Youtube 360 Temporarily Not Working

Youtube changed their 360 encoding and we don't play the stream correctly. We are working on a fix, which should be ready in a couple of days.

In the mean time, you can play with the 180/360/SBS/OU settings to see if any makes it watchable.

VR Keyboard

By popular request, we added an in-VR (Mottie) keyboard accessible through the global menu. It spawns in front of you, and can be resized or moved anywhere using the standard VR Toolbox mechanics.

Note that the input is directed towards the screen you last looked at.

“The idea of being able to do all of your work, inside your VR headset, is incredibly enticing for a lot of people.”
