Description: MovingPictures enables viewing of videos and galleries of (.png, .jpg, and .gif) images using the Vive VR headset. Using one or both controllers, you can load videos and images from your computer, then freely move them around and resize them in the VR space in front of you. If at any point you forget the controls, you can simply turn around to see them mapped out on the Vive controller.
For videos, you can fast-forward and rewind, select a specific time in the video, choose whether the video repeats after reaching the end and adjust the volume. For images, you can switch from image to image to view all the images in the opened folder in-order. Images can be viewed one-at-a-time, as a row of all images in the folder, or as a column of those images. The images can keep their relative proportions, or be resized to have either the same width or the same height.
Review: MovingPictures: VR Video and Image Viewer is once again a media player in VR. The good news is this one does support a wide range of file extensions like .mp4, .avi, .flv, .wmv, .mov, .qt, .3gp, .swf, .mkv, .ogg & .webm which is quite impressive. But it is still the same old tired thing that you can get in a hundred other apps and most of them are free! I am sure there was going to be a lot more features added to this one, but they have since been long forgotten. There might be someone out there somewhere that needs and wants this app, but that person is not me.
