Loading videos on to your Oculus Go is a breeze. Here’s how to do it!

So you couldn’t resist that great price point and you bought yourself an Oculus Go. You’ve spent a little time with it. You’ve played with a few apps and gotten ensconced in a few games. However, you’re now ready to watch some movies on this modern wonder.

Whether you are working with a Windows system or MacOS, it’s a breeze to do. Here’s how!

Windows

Connect your Oculus Go to your PC with a micro USB cable.
In your headset, you will have to give your PC permission to gain access. Select Allow Access to Data.
Once you are connected to your PC, the Autoplay feature should open. If it does, select Open Device to View Files.

If Autoplay does not start, you can manually browse to Oculus Go Storage through File Explorer. It will be named VR-Headset.

Once you have your VR-Headset open, select Internal Shared Storage.

Open the folder named Movies.

You can now drag and drop videos into the storage of your Oculus Go.

MacOS

Download the File Transfer Tool from Android and install it on your Mac.
Connect your Oculus Go to your Mac with a micro USB cable.
Open the File Transfer Tool you just installed.
In your headset, you will have to give your computer permission to gain access. Select Allow Access to Data.

A folder named VR-Headset should automatically open

If you want to save space on your Oculus Go, or if you just prefer streaming media content to your headset, you can use SKYBOX VR Video Player. It’s a free app that works with DLNA streaming.

You can use your own DLNA server or use a device like the RAVPower Filehub Plus which is a travel router that works with SD cards and USB storage devices.

SKYBOX VR Video Player also works with locally stored files so you can use it as your primary media consumption app.
