This player has a good customer support, followed by a lot of features at which you can take a peek on their official website. Apart from watching video in full 360 degrees, it lets you experience videos on the web from both desktop and mobile browsers. Download here.

2.  LiveViewRift

Say hello to one of the most popular DK2 video players. It is on top of the list for many people, and for a good reason. It perform superbly, has a solid tracking, and has no performance issues. It is my second favourite Oculus Rift video player. Download here.

3. VR Player

VR Player is a known program amongst Oculus Rift veterans. Although I would not recommend using it with DK2 (as it has some performance issues), it is one of the best video players available for the first Oculus Rift development kit. Download here.

4. CINEVEO

CINEVEO is a bit of a controversial app. Its creator, Sven Kohn, had some dishonorable ways to market his program, as well as having a bad customer support. Due to these incidents, CINEVEO has been blacklisted in vrapps & EnterTheRift.fr. You can read more about the incident here on reddit. Price is $9.99.

MaxVR does everything that you ask him to. There are no complications with this program. Although some features might be missing, it can be seen as something positive. It is one of the most simplistic players that doesn’t confuse their users. Download here. Price is $9.99.

6. RiftMax

Riftmax has also its own spin to all these video players. Apart from watching movies and everything you want, you are able to invite friends or join parties, like in Convrge. To make the best of this social interaction, you can use your spotlight to sing some karaoke to others. Download here.

Whirligig has been praised for its smoothness. No judder is a big plus, especially when watching movies for hours on end. Some people even have named Whirligig as one of the best Oculus Rift video players available. Download here.
