With the Oculus Quest 2 finally released after a long wait, consumers can now enjoy a plethora of high-end VR games and experiences. Today I am going to try out one such game called Pigasus VR Media Player on the new platform. So let’s go ahead and get started!
First off, this is a somewhat simple program. There aren’t any fancy graphics or complex menus to navigate through. The game is self-explanatory and there isn’t much in the way of the story. Basically, you are told that pigs have stolen all your stuff and all you have to do is retrieve it by flying around in a rocket ship. Sounds simple enough, right?
Navigating through the menus is a fairly simple process, as well. Just pick what you want to do and it will load right up. Watching videos from your own library can be done fairly easily. Videos are played directly from the folder they are stored in, so make sure they are all in there before playing them or else nothing will happen.
Copying any file onto the device is also extremely easy to do, which means you won’t have to worry about transferring files through your phone anymore! The only problem with doing this is that everything must exist inside of a single directory on the storage space available. This kind of limits how much stuff you can actually fit into one place but it’s not a huge deal unless you’re trying to fit a ton of VR content onto the Quest 2.
Playing your files is far easier than copying them on, though. Just select what you want to play and it will start up right away. It’s that simple! There are no options for playback speed or anything like that but videos seem to run smoothly with a little slowdown in frame rate. Also, be sure not to hit the big square button when playing because it will close out of whatever video you’re watching faster than you can blink (literally).
That about sums up my review of Pigasus VR Media Player. While it is a bit barebones and limited in its feature set, I still think this is an extremely useful app to have on any VR platform. You never know when you might need something like this so I’m glad to see it existing in the library of media apps available for use on the Quest 2.
I hope you enjoyed my review and happy gaming!
