Oculus Quest 2 best video resolution

Maximum Video Resolutions for Oculus Quest 2

  • Monoscopic: Up to 8192×4096 @ 60 FPS 100 Mbit H.265 (HEVC) codec
  • Stereoscopic: Up to 5760×5760 @ 60 FPS 100 Mbit H.265 (HEVC) codec
  • 180 Side by Side: Up to 5760×5760 @ 60 FPS 100 Mbit H.265 (HEVC) codec

Since Oculus Quest is released with the all-new and very powerful XR2 chipset it is now finally possible to playback 8K 60FPS video without any frame drops. Since the display of the Oculus Quest 2 still has a limited pixel density we can also recommend a 7200×3600 @ 60 FPS 100Mbit H.265 (HEVC) video resolution since this leaves room for a little overhead when using spatial audio for example.

To enable these resolutions in your Headjack app make sure to generate a new build from our platform (since we updated our complete SDK) and upload your videos with the “use original” profile enabled.
