I added a --follow-focused option now: vr-video-player --follow-focused which will make vr-video-player follow window focus instead of having to select a window (which might be hard to do for fullscreen applications). All controls and examples are documented here:

Looks like the sha512sums is currently incorrect.

is ('1ff4fe3c1108377f91162bc997897467e727b6a37b45fd5efea0f944fc9a11e1fed99bbea70868cac13d3dc2f827af2f1e08a2e308311e5441de3980e2771b2f')

Oh, actually I forgot that I can't download many VR videos from YouTube anymore since some change happened.

Someone will have to figure out how to download the new VR 180 format first.

Thanks, the server is back up now. Looks like I accidentally disconnected it. Youtube has different VR formats, but 360 degrees vr videos work somewhat if you run the vr-video-player with the --sphere360 option. If it doesn't work then can you send me a link to a youtube vr video that you want to play and I might be able to support playing such videos.

Looks like your website is down at the moment.

Also, forgot to mention, I got it installed and it works well. Thank you. This helps a lot since I can't currently get Skybox VR Video Player working currently, and your solution being native of course performs better anyway. Now if only there were an easy way to convert YouTube's VR videos to SBS videos...

My guess is that you have an old version of sibs, but anyways; i removed the dependency on sibs now. Try installing vr-video-player again.

When build starts, I get: "sibs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
