Can the teacher tablet push YouTube videos (360 degree VR videos) to all of the headsets at once?

Can the teacher tablet push YouTube videos (360 degree VR videos) to all of the headsets at once? So the full class can view the same video at the same time? If yes, what app to use? If not, when will this be available? Also curious once this is available how would we remove ads from video - I guess we'd need to pay for premium YouTube account.

 

for instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FyN5_-njAU

or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKm3uzL_A4c

 

Thanks.

Hi ZachVR,

 

No, there is not a current way to push a YouTube video to all of the headsets at once and this feature is not planned. We are exploring the capability to push a video asset from a teacher device to all of the headsets at once, but that would be a downloaded video.

 

So, in this ideal situation --- the teacher would download a desired YouTube video (which would remove the ad interruptions) and then use the device management platform to push the video out to all the headsets. This functionality is still being explored, but potentially ready for this summer.

Thanks. Yes a downloaded video that can be pushed to all devices, via platform, is best. Great to hear on track for potential summer release. It would be great if the teacher could broadcast voice to all headsets at once while they are viewing.

Hi,

 

What about downloading the YouTube 360 video to a computer, and then adding it to SkyBox VR.  As long as it's a computer with access to the Rukus wi-fi router...shouldn't I be able to use screen mirroring to play it on all of the headsets at once??
