3d side by side no longer switch's into stereoscopic mode is just two images side by side. Full screen doesn't work either as I have mentioned before.

Another use case for Emby to get on the VR bandwagon: Airplanes

I wanted to watch Game 'o Thrones but it would be too graphic for tablet use on an airplane.

I came up with another workaround…

  1. Use Emby on Android to download offline copy.
  2. In Oculus VR, launch 'Samsung PhoneCast VR'
  3. Within 'Samsung PhoneCast VR', now launch Kodi
  4. Got to "Enter files section" under one of the headings and choose "Add videos…"
  5. Browse to the Emby cache location and choose Add.
    ​         /sdcard/Android/data/com.mb.android/files/sync/<SERVERNAME>
  6. Click through your folders and start watching offline

 

This is a pain to use but at least it solves a problem until we get Emby working in VR.

So the issue I think is that we display custom video controls and hide the built-in ones, therefore the samsung special vr button is inaccessible. does that sound right?

Yes sounds like that may be the issue. When i first got my gear vr worked flawless then pretty sure when you went to custom controls it stopped working. No idea about 3d. There is now two browsers for it, occulus and samsung. The fullscreen works sometimes(the button appears) but 3d hsbs is not working in either. Earlier in this thread someone suggested using an older version for it to work..

So i guess for certain devices we need to have some decision making and just show the stock built-in controls. That will kind of stink though because it will result in loss of some emby features that are in our OSD.

What if there was an emby settings/options/features button? What features would be missing by the way?

Like trying to merge two custom overlays that are from different developers. Need a dedicated app but the problem may be solved as there is a samsung app that lets you use just about any app within the vr enviroment. Emby android works but its only beta and theres lots of freezing crashing at the moment..

with the occulus browser we now have a choice click on fullscreen and not have playback control/subtitle control etc or not have fullscreen,also no stereoscopic 3d. plex has just released an app for gear vr there is also an oculus rift app. they were both released due to popular demand. cant believe emby has ignored vr compleatly. anyhoo I am jumping ship to the other side been fun :)

Ok must have changed in the samsung app then :(

This is happening to me too. The button to go full screen is gone, and I can't seem to access the emby options for display, like 360 mode, 280 mode, etc...all I have is the browsers zoom function. :(  It worked the first time I tried it, but hasn't since. I changed it to desktop mode too (the browser), still no changes. TY!

It's because we're using custom controls and not the standard browser video controls.
