Hello everyone! A few months ago I treated myself to an Oculus Rift. In these months I have rediscovered gaming, movies and yes, even .

In this post I'm going to explain how to get started with Porn (and other 360 videos for that matter) So let's start with the…

. Why

VR Porn is the closest you'll get to having actual sex, without having actual sex. The good movies are shot in 4K, 60FPS stereoscopic 3D. If you've watched a low quality, streamed 360 video on PornHub and are put off by the idea of VR porn, I urge you to read this write-up. There is better stuff out there. Your porn experience will change after this, forever.

2. So, where is the good stuff?

I'm going to preface this by saying that most of the good stuff is paid. There are other methods out there if you want to take to the high seas, but if you want to help develop this emerging market, I'd suggest paying for the content. I've paid for 3 services so you don't have to, here is an overview:

2.1 CzechVR

CzechVR is probably the best VR Porn provider out there. The models are okay looking, and the scale is correct. They have a lot of content available (about 400 videos), although the "fetish" stuff is almost all gaping vaginas and pissing.

They offer up to 5K files at 60FPS. Needless to say, all their videos are shot in stereoscopic 3D. The encoding they use is either H264 or H265. (To know why this is important, keep reading.)

2.2 Virtual Real Porn

The second best. Again, okay looking models and quite a bit of content to choose from. Their material has a bit more variety than CzechVR's.

Their newer videos are 4 or 5K but the older ones are only 1600p, and it is noticable. All files are stereoscopic 3D and 60FPS. Encoding is H265 or VP9.

2.3 Naughty America

No. Just no. But seriously, they have very little VR material and what's there is low quality. The scale on the models is all wrong. I'd totally recommend it if you have an orc woman fetish though.

Files are I suspect lower than 4K (resolution not given), 60FPS, stereoscopic 3D, H265 encoding.

3. What headset do I need?

You will need a top of the line VR headset to enjoy the full experience. One of these should do (top is most prefered):

  • Oculus Rift CV1 or HTC Vive (Pro)

  • Pimax 4K or comparable

  • Playstation VR

  • Samsung Gear VR

Motion controllers aren't necessary but can be useful depending on the experience.

4. How do I play my fancy shmansy files?

Let's get this out of the way: You can stream these videos online but the quality is abhorrent. You need to download these suckers for the full experience. Make sure you have enough room on your hard drive because a high quality, 30 minute VR porn video can reach anywhere between 5-10GB in size. Yeah, you read that right. Depending on your connection and the servers, your download may take anywhere between 20 minutes and an hour to . Keep this in mind before you get frisky.

"Okay okay, but how the hell do I play them?"

Alright, fair enough. Let's get to it.

4.1 Virtual Desktop

Virtual desktop has in my opinion the best VR video player I could find. Playing the video is as simple as dragging and dropping. The added advantage is that you can see and operate your desktop in VR so you can keep the headset on. And on top of that, the video that's playing doesn't get shown on your outside of VR, woohoo!

This player supports mouse, keyboard, Touch Controllers and I suspect also the Vive controllers.

4.2 Oculus Video

For obvious reasons, this will only work with an Oculus Rift. On the Oculus Store, you should be able to find "Oculus Video". It's a free VR video player. Getting this software to read your own videos is a bit of a hassle though. There are a few locations from which Oculus will try to read videos. The most important locations are your "Videos" folder on your C: drive and a "Videos" folder inside of the software's install directory. If you're C: drive is an SSD (like mine is) it isn't ideal to fill it up with a few 5GB video files. So what remains is Oculus Video's install directory. This is how you get started:

  1. Go to the Oculus Store and search for "Oculus Video", install it

  2. Navigate to Oculus Video install directory. This should be in "YourDrive:(Program Files)OculusSoftwareOculusVideo" or something similar

  3. Inside that directory, make a new folder called "Videos".

  4. Place your videos inside this folder.

  5. Launch Oculus Video and navigate to the "Your videos" tab on the left.

  6. Good to go

Sometimes, you may need to add "_180" to your filename if it doesn't play the file correctly.

This software supports an Xbox 360 gamepad, the Oculus Remote and Oculus Touch controllers. The latter of which is quite nice to use "one handed".

4.3 Virtual Real Player

I'm not a fan of this one. This is Virtual Real Porn's own video player. It requires you to log in with your VRP account and the interface isn't super nice. It does support an Xbox 360 gamepad so there's that I guess.

A huge plus about this player is that it will sync with certain fleshlights. See Virtual Real's website for more info on that. Also, you will need this software if you want to play one of VRP's "interactive" videos.

5. Coming to a stuttery halt

This has been an absolute pain in the ass to fix. A lot of high quality VR porn videos will stutter when playing them back. Why is this?

5.1 The problem

To know why this happens, we first need to understand what video encoding is. (If you don't care, you can skip this paragraph and get straight to the solution). Imagine this: You have a 3840 x 2160, 60FPS video. In a raw format this video would be huge! (Hell, they still are). To solve this issue, videos are encoded. This attempts to squeeze as much quality into an as small as possible file size using specialized algorithms (I'm no expert on these). H264 has been a popular encoding method for a while now, and most hardware has support for this standard. HOWEVER. Recently, a new encoding standard has shown up on the scene: H265. This algorithm is incredibly efficient and can squeeze amazing quality into very small file sizes. Perfect for our high quality VR files right?! Well, the problem is, your processor has to work really hard to decode this back to a readable format. For H264, this isn't a huge problem. New and old hardware alike support decoding of this format natively. The newer H265 can still be read by your computer, but only in software. The hardware can't natively decode this format which results in stuttery playback. Your processor is decoding megabytes upon megabytes per second.

5.2 THE SOLUTION(s):

Before anything else, I'd suggest trying to play your file through Virtual Desktop's player. The problem was a lot less severe, or even non-existent there.

The second solution: Re-encoding your video file. For this, you'll need a piece of software called Handbrake. Check to see if your file is indeed H265 and re-encode it to H264. Make sure you re-encode it to the video's original metrics. (4 or 5K 60FPS). I'm not going in too much detail about this since that's a bit beyond the scope of this write-up. Search for detailed information online or feel free to shoot me a PM.

This doesn't always solve the problem, but it has for me sometimes.

6. Final notes

To have a good experience in VR, make sure you have everything you need at hand. Make sure you can't be disturbed, because you won't even know it if someone walks in on you. Also, keep in mind that most VR players will show what you see on screen. So turn your screen of if this is a concern.

I hope this has helped. Feel free to send me a PM or leave a comment if you have any other questions. If you liked this write-up or if it helped you, consider sending me an Ethereum tip 😉
