Topic: New PSVR owner, question about 3d youtube videos

Hi everyone, please forgive my ignorance on 3d stuff but I am curious about the reason why most of the youtube 3d videos (using youtube psvr mode) look like 2 images on the psvr headset and not a single 3d image. Is it supposed to be like this or it is something I'm doing wrong? Appreciate your help, thanks!

From what I've seen, it mostly looks like many of the 360 degree videos on youtube are recorded with a couple of cameras and then spliced together to make one video. Because of this, it looks like multiple screens because it pretty much is.

I understand what you are referring to, but what I'm seeing are 2 separate images, one for each eye, instead of a 3d one.

@ArtMustel sounds like each image should go on either eye. Its how psvr 3d imaging works. Maybe thats what you need to find out.

I am totally clueless since those "up and down 3d videos won't work either with PSVR. All I see is 2 images...top and bottom, not 3d at all. Now I am so frustrated, if anyone that owns a psvr could chime in ...thanks!

Thanks man, I'll look forward your post on this.

Incidentally, I received my blu rays of Titanic 3d and Avatar 3d (a set). They both work great! I'm very pleased with the cinematic mode of the psvr, cannot compare it to a 3d TV (which I don't own) but I am very pleased with this.

By the way, when you watch a 3d blu ray on the psvr, no image goes to the tv, only to the helmet. And when I try one of those side by side or top bottom, the split image shows on both tv and psvr, so I am inclined to believe that those kind of youtube videos are not psvr compatible.

@ArtMustel are you running youtube from the app or browser?

By the way, I have no problems with psvr games. Even I can watch 3d blurays perfectly using my ps4 pro and psvr. But I still can't get 3d from youtube sbs or top/down 3d videos.
