To preload your content you will need: your headset of choice, a computer and a cable to connect the device to the computer.

Name your content

On the computer, create a folder titled VREvent. This is the root folder in which all content will be placed. You can create additional folders inside that will show up as a subfolder in the application. Note that only a maximum of 20 files per folder will be shown inside Look & Play. To view content as stereoscopic or 2D you have to rename the file with the correct suffix. Use the table below:

Custom icons

Each video, image and folder are represented by a default icon inside Look & Play. You can add a custom icon for each file and folder to be shown instead. To use a custom icon give the image the same name as the content file and add the _icon suffix.
