Synchronization instructions:

- Synchronization is a feature that keeps a movie in sync between two devices. To enable sync, first set up the IP of the device you wish to sync with in Settings/General, where you can also find the IP of your own device. Do this on both phones so they have each others IP configured.

- Select a video to play. If it's a local video it must be present on both devices.

- In the VR UI, click the "sync" button on both devices to enable synchronization.

- On one of the devices, start the video by pressing the play button. After a small delay, the movie will start playing synchronized on both devices.

Seeking and network play is supported!

Feature suggestions and bug reports are always welcome!

Permission usage:

NFC, WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE : Used by the Cardboard SDK to set up and save your headset configuration.

ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Used for finding the IP of your device and displaying it in the Sync settings, to help set up synchronized play with another device.

INTERNET, READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Required for accessing media on the device and for streaming.

Note: The VIBRATE permission is not used and will be removed in the next release.

I have a Galaxy S8 and use the Daydream. This is unfortunately the only VR player available now in 2022 for this setup that even remotely works. 2 stars because it plays my videos well enough, but the floating UI that DOES NOT GO AWAY is annoying. It's just always in front of my videos. I have to screw around with it for a long time to get it out of the way. Why would there be no Hide UI option? But I guess it's only $3, so you get what you pay for.

A great app. Honestly the best VR media player I have used. I highly recommend purchasing this app because it is much more refined and feature packed as opposed to most of its competitors. I would like to highlight some of the issues I faced and it would be great if these were rectified. 1. The resume playback function doesn't work consistently. I did not have this issue with the free version, but somehow this is frequently happening with the paid version. 2. Once I exit the app after a session, the phone fails to completely come out of DnD mode. A lot of the notifications are still muted and there are DnD glitches visible in the sound settings occasionally. The only way to fix this so far is to restart the phone. I am using a Galaxy Note 8.

This is a flexible app that allows repositioning of camera for watching movies and screen locking. Opportunities for improvement: 1. It seems animated GIFs are not supported at least on Android 10. 2. From a usability perspective, when selecting screen, video type, and projection type before watching a video, it would be half the phone presses if all options were available on buttons instead of having to first press to open each dropdown menu.
