Didn't work for me. When I try to play a VR w/ Google cardboard, it starts ok, plays for a couple of seconds, then "buffering" forever. If I try to work around buffering problem by downloading the VR before playing, it won't play at all. A pop-up error message "unable to instantiate decoder" and "check your connection". Problem is NOT my Wi-Fi connection; ookla speed test says 47 Mb download speed
First version worked fine on S5, no download needed. Now with all the updates it hangs up when put in the cardboard viewer. Too bad because the content was super but worthless if you can't watch it.
Nice videos but doesn't always have bandwidth to stream and I can only save to SdCard so needless to say I don't have space. The resolution of the videos doesn't seem to be as good as youtube vr so hard to watch for any length of time.
Has yet to work for me on either my Samsung S4 or my Dell PC. Everytime I try to watch it, it sends me to the Google Play Store to download the app. - even though I had already downloaded the app.
video locks up but sound keeps playing on my nexus 6p, even with content downloaded to my phone
I have been facing an error when trying to play some videos on my Galaxy J7 prime. This is the error that I get "unable to initiate decoder OMX.Exynos.avc.dec' Did some Googling and found that maybe the video resolution is the problem.I assume a phone having a 1080p display should be capable of playing a 1080p video. Nonetheless, can you please confirm if the videos that are downloaded in offline mode are 1080p I would like to test this by playing the video on lower resolution but I don't see an option for editing that in the app. Speaking of offline mode I can't seem to change the location of my downloaded videos. Is it possible to do this? I am running out of space on my internal storage
