Review: Open VR Video Player is exactly as its name might suggest. It’s a virtual screen video player that can handle 2D, 3D, 360° and even 3D 360° video formats. There is no thrills with this app. It does what it needs to do any very little else.
Because it doesn’t do that much it is pretty easy to navigate and start playing the file you want. With URL play and hard disk you can navigate easily through your files and get the file you want without too much hassle.
Verdict: While the Oculus Video app looks a lot better, sometimes you don’t need all the graphical guff that goes with it. For those that want to get into their files and start watching their video ASAP, this is definitely the app for you, plus the number of different formats it can handle will mean some people find it a lot easier to work with than many other video player apps. This app is poor on features but rich in usability.
