Description: CINEVEO is a super immersive VR Cinema experience, with the most detailed and beautifully designed VR Cinema environments on the market. Experience total presence in VR, as you watch your videos inside a collection of ultra-realistic VR Cinemas with AAA graphics. Nothing comes closer to the real thing than CINEVEO – VR Cinema.

Review: Most people might not know CINEVEO – VR Cinema from the Google Play store, but it was widely regarded as one of the very best virtual cinema apps available. Well, now it is in the Steam VR store and you can run it on whatever headset you happen to have, including the OSVR. So what do you get with this app? You get 4 different virtual cinemas: Home Theather, Cinema, Boat Show and the Void. It’s a pretty good range and you are sure to find one you are happy with.

Once you have chosen your cinema you can play a 2D or 3D video from your own computer, select a 2D or 3D Youtube film and even steam something from Plex if you have it installed (Plex organizes all of your video, music, and photo collections, and gives you instant access to them on all of your devices). With so many different options most people should be able to stream the content they want.

I wouldn’t say CINEVEO – VR Cinema is as good as the Oculus Video app, but to be fair it is very good indeed. The boat show cinema is particularly good. Navigation is also pretty each and not even from the word go did I have any problems working out how to navigate the menus. Sure, there isn’t a lot of choice in virtual cinemas, but what there is looks pretty good. You can tell a lot of work and effort has gone into making it look great and be as easy to use as possible. If you need a virtual cinema app you can do far worse than download this one.
