Hello

1st Happy Holidays! I don't expect to have my answer soon,
only after you charged your batteries :)
Recently I got myself google daydream and I started to play with web vr options of pano2vr.
I managed to get it work but I've noticed that within 30ish seconds after entering VR I start to feel unpleasant nausea / motion sickness.
I tried many other 360 panoramas and videos in daydream and I didn't experienced anything.
I also play video games occasionally and I don't experience nausea.
So I wonder is there any tutorial how to avoid this?
I'm watching it in Chrome: Enter URL for my panorama, click VR button and put my Samsung S9+ in Daydream.
Phone works at max CPU speed and screen resolution.
Panorama is here: https://www.krk360.com/projekti/Camping ... index.html
Thanks,
Regards

We found that sitting down in a chair that rotates 360°was best for us.
Like an office business chair.

Hi

Huh that's some practical solution :D
I had hopes if there are some proven specific rotation settings which would minimize rotation lag and reduce motion sickness problems.

Hi,
I would have said it is normal for some people to feel motion sickness.
But as your saying you don't get it with other players then this is a bit odd.

You say you use the Daydream, I have a Pixel 3 with the Daydream and hand controller for testing.
I can not say it's my goto device for a few reasons, do you use it using the Daydream app?

Regards,
Hopki

We use a VERY slow auto-rotation speed like 0.03 clockwise.
Default is too fast for us.
