Oculus Rift / Rift S

What Formats will my Rift / Rift S be able to play?

The Rift series of VR Headsets from Oculus are powered and limited by your computer. The formats you can play will depend on the capabilities of your computer and video card. Video cards released within the last couple years can usually play 2300p, if you find your system isn't playing the higher resolutions smoothly you'll need to select a lower resolution or upgrade your system.

Playing downloaded videos with the Oculus Rift series can be done with the Whirligig VR Media Player from the Steam store.
