Best VR videos

Virtual Reality (VR) has revolutionized the way we experience content, from gaming and education to entertainment. VR videos, in particular, offer an immersive and breathtaking way to explore new worlds, relive memories, or simply escape from reality. In this post, we'll take you on a journey through the best VR videos available today.

Let's divide this article in two categories. 'VR videos you can watch on any device', and 'VR videos for VR devices'.

These types of videos are easy to watch (often even on YouTube such as this one), and while some may say it's not 'real VR', the 360 degrees and freedom of choosing your viewpoint still gives impressive immersion into wholly different worlds. Tip: Enable the sound for more immersion, it's a big part of the experience!

VR videos for VR devices

This category focuses on what some people would call 'real VR', content generated inside the VR headset and not just 360-degree videos on a flat screen. Real VR is more accurate in terms of 6DoF tracking, high-res, and higher frame rate, and in some videos you can also use your controllers or walk around, increasing the immersion. Also because you're wearing the device rather than a screen in front of you, the immersion will be much higher.

Dive in and embark on unforgettable journeys without leaving your home. So, put on your VR headset and get ready to be amazed by the best VR videos the digital realm has to offer. Your adventure begins now!
