Wreckfest on a VR Headset

Jeremy Ford
In this video we're going to play Wreckfest on a HTC Vive using Bigscreen Beta and Virtual Desktop. This will also work on an Oculus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality headsets. This is a setup guide and comparison video between both these applications running different in-game graphic settings. This is also a proof of concept video that playing flat screen games on a HMD is achievable and can work rather well!

Everything was recorded through OBS and the OBS VR plugin directly from the HMD display feed. The HTC Vive was laid on a chair so we've got footage without any jerking head moment that would have made it impossible to see any in frame rate smoothness difference.

    It's states 'on a VR headset', not in VR. Two different meanings. If you watch movies on a VR headset, that doesn't explicitly mean the movie is in VR; see the difference?
