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!

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.

I see so much potential in this app. It was really easy to work with, I loved the idea of having a menu in the video player and the little movie theater was cute, but after using the player for awhile, I noticed that evreytime I moved my head, the setting/environment would move too, making it really hard to select other videos. YOU'VE GOT TO FIX THIS. I can't think of another app I would use other than this one. Which is why change needs to occur quickly. This app would be so good w\o this.

This app WAS great. Simple interface, highly customizable playback options. 2D to VR support, good controller support... Recently, however, audio does NOT play in VR mode. Even if video is not split to cardboard view, upon entering vr mode audio MAY briefly continue, but then no longer works. Multiple files, types, sources, all the same problem. Developer, please fix, or help to troubleshoot. Will rate 5 stars with fix, because it was for years.

I tried different VR apps but this app suited my needs as it has better UI, controls and features when compared with other similar apps. Some of the great features are, 1. User Interface. All the player controls are positioned in such a way that it doesn't interfere while watching the movies. 2. Screen size can be adjusted easily. 3. Supported by Google cardboard. 4. Screen lock is flexible.
