I have been developing with the standard still cardboard.ggt for HMD with no problems. Now I am looking into taking a few of our 360 videos and creating HMDs out of them.

I am able to get positive results after converting the 360 video to mp4 and then using the vr.ggt - It has been working when viewing within the "desktop" browser (split screen video)
HOWEVER, once they are viewed on a smartphone device (currently testing in iPhone 6 and safari & Chrome)- only the first image plays - no video.

BTW This happens to be the same with audio in a normal still HMD. The audio works on the computer but not on the smart device.

Should this be possible in the smartphone browser right now or are the output files not able to do that just yet? And if they are then what is it that I might be doing incorrectly?

Thanks so much,
