Today’s update contains a head lock option for the screen, a few additional keyboard shortcuts for the video player and some bug fixes.

  • The new Head Lock option will make the screen follow your head’s position and orientation; this is useful to play 2D games that include head tracking. It is also useful when watching movies in a resting position. The screen transparency option has also been removed as this is no longer supported in Windows 10 Creators Update.
  • You can now toggle play/pause of the video player using the space bar.
  • Fixed issue with Rift where hourglass would appear after exiting another VR app or game such as Assetto Corsa.
  • Additionally this version no longer requires the app to be installed in the default location (under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\. ) for the motion controllers to interact with the screen. Drag drop of 360 photos and videos will also correctly work no matter where the app is installed.
  • Let me know if you experience any issues with this update.

    Today’s update adds support for HDR (High-Dynamic-Range) environments and enhances the image quality for both Rift and Vive users through improvements to the SRGB pipeline.

    This update adds 2 free HDR environments: Space Sky which is a high quality Cubemap and Home Cinema, a rich and polished model environment which is perfect for watching movies.

    The behavior of the close button (X in the upper right) was changed to exit the app and a minimize button with an option to minimize to tray was added.

    This update also contains a workaround for a Steam bug that considered the app as still running after exit and prevented you from re-launching it in VR.

    It also includes a fix for the video player sometimes crashing with Windows 10 Creators Update.

    Update 1.3.1 fixes a brightness issue with stereoscopic 360 photos and a bug with SBS/OU mode in theater environments.


    “These are the kinds of programs that change the way people look at technology. In this case, it’s a program that, for some people, might actually make virtual reality a enjoyable, even practical, replacement for their monitor.”

    “It’s an incredibly polished app that take minimal resources to provide a number of functions that feel like they should be a standardised part of the VR experience coming to consumer homes.”

    “This is the first program you should buy for your Oculus Rift”

    Update 1.1 Adds Multi-GPU and Optimus Laptop support

    The latest version now works with Multi-GPU configurations and laptops. Check the release notes for more information.

    Update 1.0.7 is now live!

    This version fixes some compatibility issues with the upcoming Oculus 1.7 runtime and contains stability improvements when swapping in and out of VR games such as Assetto Corsa. It also attempts to fix some stutter issues with the HTC Vive introduced in a recent SteamVR update.

    Update 1.0.6 is now live!

The update also fixes an issue with the Video Player not showing some options on some computers. It also changes some default options: MSAA and Xbox Controller are now disabled by default.

    Update 1.0.5 is now live!

    This release fixes SBS support on ultra-wide (21:9) monitors and Over-Under on regular (4:3) monitors. It also fixes an issue where the GPU usage could spike when the application was idle with the Rift.

    Update 1.0.4 is now live!

    This update adds a couple requested features and basic support for various controllers.

    • Added support for rotated monitors (aka portrait orientation)
    • Added new Mip Mapping option for Rift users which greatly reduces text aliasing on screen
    • Added basic mouse emulation with Vive touchpads
    • Added basic mouse emulation with Xbox controller and Oculus Remote for Rift users

    Update 1.0.2 is now live!

    This update adds a new Environment Store along with small improvements and bug fixes:

    • New Environment Store which allows artists to create and sell high quality environments. With the launch, 3 very cool environments created by community members are available:
      • Cinema
      • Rick’s Garage
      • Cerebral Theater

      Purchased environments will also be available from the Oculus Home version if you have a Rift but you will need to run Virtual Desktop on Steam first after you’ve made your purchase. Note: The store only works with Chrome at the moment.

    • Added ability to delete photos directly from the 360 Photos tab
    • Fixed issue with subscribed workshop environments not loading when VRD is installed in a non-default location
    • Fixed certificate issue with some users when pasting YouTube 360 videos
    • Fixed black screen in home theater when multi-monitor was enabled

    Update 1.0.1 is now live!

    This update adds Steam Workshop integration along with many improvements and bug fixes:

    • Steam Workshop integration (Steam will need to run for new environments to be downloaded)
    • Increased process priority to help with framerates and audio glitches when running games
    • Executables are now signed which should solve the issues with Anti-Virus software
    • Added a Force OpenVR option for Rift users (using OpenVR doesn’t bring much value at the moment)
    • Vive controllers will now appear at the right position when the Floating option is checked
    • The 360 video Open Dialog will now restore the last directory

    Now Available!

    Virtual Desktop is now available to Play!

    If you encounter any issues, please let me know in the discussions section.

    The Workshop integration is partially there: you can create and submit your own environments, users will be able to download them in a future update.
