We are SKYBOX STUDIO, developer of the SKYBOX VR Video Player.
Firstly we want to say sorry about our negligence upon the release of Quest 2.
2020 was difficult for us: less money, less staff, no DevKits, nearly non development progress.
Yet we survived and now we are trying very hard to speed up the development to support more features in 2021.
Here are some major changes about SKYBOX that we want you to know:
- SKYBOX Cross Buy among Quest and Rift version offered starting from Feb. 19th 2021 (finally Oculus approved)
- Users who paid for Go/Gear SKYBOX version please contact us to get free access to Quest version (also plz help us spread the word).
- SKYBOX Quest version will be priced at $9.99 starting from Feb. 19th 2021
Meanwhile, it comes to our attention that quite a few people are experiencing bugs related to SMB and DLNA feature, such as the following issues:
a. Report "Network Error" when trying to connect a server
b. App crash when connecting to certain server
c. Cannot find certain DLNA servers
d. Report "An Error has Occurred" when trying to play certain files
If you encounter those mentioned above (or other related issues), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we could have you in the beta channel to test the upcoming Quest v1.0.2 (expecting to release in beta channel on Mar. 9th 2021)
We intend to fix all network-related bug in this new version.
Roadmap for 2021 Q1:
- SMBv3 support
- Manually input IP address to search SMB server
- [Beta Channel] Hand Tracking Support on Quest 1 & 2
- [Beta Channel] 90Hz support on Quest 2
- Hardware decoding for high-resolution videos on Rift & Steam version
On the other hand, you may find that the response to emails/posts is a bit slow now.
That is because that there is only one me and many of you (which I'm very grateful).
I'll be sure to response to you as soon as possible and I really appreciate your patience.
We are hoping to get more people to work on the project and things would become smoother once we have more people.
Thank you for bearing with us and we promise to make SKYBOX better and better for you to enjoy
