Frequently Asked Questions

We have the answer.

Is this really a Plex Client?

Yes. Plex recently announced they would not be making apps for VR, so Movie Deck is the solution! Movie Deck doesn't require any extra PC software to mirror or stream since it is a real Plex client. It connects directly to your Plex Servers and the Plex.TV website.

Can I play movies when I am away from home?

Yes. Enable remote access on your Plex server and you will be able to log in from anywhere and watch movies provided your bandwidth is high enough.

Why do I need this?

Movie Deck is an application you will use for the lifetime of your VR headset! It is not a game that you will get bored with after a couple of weeks. You provide the content. It is more flexible and convenient than other media players and a real Plex client which makes it a vital utility to own.

Does Movie Deck store my information? Is it safe?

We value your privacy and do not collect any information from you. We don't even own servers to store information. In addition, passwords and viewing history are not saved, so can share it with family members.

How does Movie Deck automatically determine the video mode?

Movie Deck looks for the following strings inside the filenames:

  • "SBS" - 3D Side by Side format (full or half)
  • "H_OU" or "3D_OU" - 3D over under (full or half)
  • "180" - Side by side 180 degree projected on a half dome
  • "360" - Over under 360 degree projected on a full sphere

Where can I get it?

Movie Deck is currently available on the App Lab section of the Meta Quest store. Open the Store from the Quest menu and search for "movie deck", or visit here
