New Space Theater Room + Props

We added a theater set of props for your movie-watching pleasure.



The props can be found in the menu under "Add Props" => "Styles" => "Theater".

We also included a preset room, called "Theater Futuristic" that you can recall from the Rooms dropdown in the GUI.

YouTube 360 Update

YouTube changed their 360 encoding and for a while we didn't play some videos correctly. We have implemented the new formats and VR Toolbox should automatically detect them except for one.

If a video doesn't appear to play correctly, try changing the 180/360/SBS/OU/Cube settings. Most likely Cube => Stereo will fix it.
