This will give you the unique chance to explore the world, back to front, left to right, the sky is literally the limit. You are part of the scene and feel in the middle of all the action.

This documentation should help you to use the actionVR app, a 360 degree video player.
If you have any recommendations for improvement please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please be aware, to use this app you need at minimum a Google Cardboard or any other head mount display /virtual reality glasses which is compatible with your smartphone.

We also recommend to use a proper headset connected to your smartphone to be able to enjoy the sound of the video.

The usage and control of the actionVR app follows a simple and intuitive logic.
You can control the app by moving you head and focusing the ray-cast (cursor) to certain elements withing the app.

As you may know movies are space consuming and and as higher the resolution as larger the file size.
We use sophisticated compression algorithm to make the files as small as possible without deteriorating the quality of the images.
Nevertheless our apps might still be huge compared to other apps. Therefore we recommend to install the actionVR app when you are connected to a local network.

Our app is compatible with the Google cardboard standard. We advise you to install the google cardboard app and set up your smartphone accordingly before using the actionVR app.

Please use a comfortable turn around chair and sit down before using the app!

After starting the app you will see a split screen similar to the one below:

You will notice if you move your head up and down at a certain speed, a little cross will appear on the screen. When the little cross appears you have the option to activate the video control bar.
