1. Why is my controller not responding?

  • Select a different controller mode in the Steam settings.
  • If there is still a problem, check if the controller is not recognized, the controller battery is low, or the controller cannot be used properly in other applications.
  • Request the program’s internal log file and troubleshoot the problem based on the program’s logic.
  • You can try using the head control mode first.

2. Why can’t some videos play normally?

The playback problem is quite complicated. You can check it according to the following steps:

  • Try manually adjusting the decoder settings on the player settings page (MediaFoundation, DirectShow).
  • If there is still a problem, check if the video can be played by the built-in Windows player.
  • If there is still a problem, try installing the paid version of the HEVC codec provided by the Microsoft Store (this codec can solve problems related to H265 4k videos).
  • If there is still a problem, please try to contact us.

3. Streaming issues

  1. Please use the recommended streaming software from the hardware vendor, such as:
    • Quest corresponds to Quest Link
    • Adventure corresponds to Adventure Streaming Tool
  2. If you use third-party software (such as Virtual Desktop), please check the corresponding software settings.
  3. Please check if your computer configuration meets the requirements of the streaming software:
    • Confirm Windows/macOS version requirements
    • Confirm whether the graphics card and CPU meet the requirements (graphics card: VR Ready PC generally requires more than GTX 970)
    • Connect the computer to a 5ghz AC or AX Wi-Fi router
  4. Please check if your router meets the requirements.
    • Wireless streaming generally requires a router that supports the 5Ghz frequency band.
      It is best to connect the PC to the router or switch via a wired network and the head-mounted device should also be connected to the same Wi-Fi.
