Is it possible to watch Vrideo videos on Google Cardboard?

It is possible to watch Vrideo videos on Google Cardboard and similar mobile-lite headsets.

Our recommended approach is downloading our native Android app or iPhone app.  While viewing a video in these apps, click the "eye" icon on the right side of the video player control bar, then place your phone in your Google Cardboard.

Another option is using the mobile web on Android phones.  However, there is a known issue when attempting this with the mobile Firefox browser.  The mobile Chrome browser has historically worked better.

Note that we've found that the magnets often included in earlier Google Cardboard kits interfere with the magnetometer in mobile devices, so it's best to remove these magnets while using Vrideo.
