View a HTML5 Video in VR (for use with an Oculus Rift).
VideoVR is an extension allowing videos in web pages to be displayed in a format suitable for a VR head-mounted display (namely the Oculus Rift).
Once installed, an icon will appear in the address bar when viewing a page containing an HTML5 video element (such as YouTube in some cases). Clicking this icon creates a 3D environment ready for viewing through the HMD.
*** NOTE: Certain GPUs (including some integrated Intel chipsets) aren't able to work with videos this way this extension requires. I'm looking into a solution. If you experience problems when using VR mode, refresh the page to return to normal.
