Hi Shanil I have an Oculus/Meta Quest 2 headset and have problems “Side loading “ my Insta360 x2 videos, 360 videos, onto it. would you mind explaining, in idiot proof steps, how I go about it please? I have tried Google instructions but I get confused and it seems to be very “ Hit and miss” with one video working and another not! 

The mp4 video is 360 on my PC but not on the headset.    Thanks

1. Export the INSV files from Insta360 Studio to immersive 360 MP4 files (H264 or H265 is fine).
2. Connect the Oculus Quest 2 to your PC and transfer the MP4 files to your Movies folder in the headset.
3. I personally use SkyBox VR Video Player to watch my Insta360 immersive 360 videos. It is a paid app but sometimes Meta gives free vouchers to download apps from the Oculus Store. So I used a coupon to buy the app.
4. In Skybox VR Video Player open the Movies folder and play your Insta360 video. And that’s it!
