For VR to truly become a commercial success, compelling reasons for end users to invest in a headset need to become reality. Aside from games and experiential apps, one of the big drivers will undoubtedly be video content.
Samsung this week released a curated video app called Milk VR, a further branch of their existing Milk content services. This app is full of 360 video experiences, with good video control capabilities and diverse content.
One unique feature of Milk VR is the ability to immediately watch content without downloading, so effectively streaming the content directly to your Gear VR headset without waiting for content to be stored on your local drive.
How does this look? Check out the video below for a look at the quality of the videos as well as my opinion on the different “formats” of 360 video – and believe it or not, there are different types that do affect the overall VR experience.
