How to use Youtube VR on the Pico 4?

In this article we will explain how to use YouTube VR on the Pico 4. Unfortunately there is no dedicated YouTube application for the Pico 4 yet and Pico has not mentioned anything about if and when the YouTube app will be available on the Pico 4. However, it is possible to watch 360-degree YouTube videos on the Pico 4 via the native Pico browser.

What is needed:

  • Pico 4 Headset
  • Pico 4 Controllers
  • Internet connection

How to watch Youtube VR videos on the Pico 4

  1. Turn on the headset and put it on.
  2. Make sure it is connected to an internet connection.
  3. Select the icon at the bottom of the screen which says ‘My applications’.
  4. Select the ‘Applications‘ button on the left side of the Menu and scroll down until you find ‘Pico Browser‘ which you will then click.
  5. Go to YouTube.com
  6. Now search for a 360 degree video. For example, you can enter ‘360 VR‘ in the search bar.
  7. Select a video and set the highest resolution for the best experience.
  8. Click on full screen.
  9. Now the video should automatically play in 360 degrees. If this is not the case, click on the cube at the bottom right and select “360° Cube” for Viewing Angle and “2D” for Dimension.

Of course, we know that the workaround via the native Pico browser is not the best way, but unfortunately the Pico 4 currently offers no other way to watch VR videos from YouTube.
