  • Oculus Go: back button on the controller
  • Pico: back button on the controller or the back button on the headset itself
  • Android: tap and hold the screen for a second

  • Looping: any playing video will loop back to the beginning once finished.
  • Headset playback: decide what happens when you take off the headset:

Pause the video
Restart the video
Stop the video and return to the virtual waiting room
