VR Porn on PS4 Gets Boost With Additional PSVR Support From Littlstar

Littlstar appears to be the first app for PlayStation 4 to allow access to USB drives with support for a wide range of VR videos including 3D and 180-degree content.

The feature should arrive in the next update to the Littlstar app on PS4, version 1.07. According to Littlstar, the update has been submitted to Sony and should start hitting systems in the coming hours as a beta feature. The update should enable a much-desired feature for some PS4 owners — the ability to watch a wide range of VR porn downloaded from one of the many websites offering that type of content. For example, as of this writing one of the leading providers of adult VR content, Virtual Real Porn, notes on its website (NSFW) that its videos only play in 2D on PlayStation 4.

“Littlstar had to request special permissions to have access to the USB port for sideloading content,” wrote Littlstar CEO Tony Mugavero in an email. “The player will support 2D and 3D 360 and 180 content, something the PlayStation player does not currently support (they only have basic 2d 360). We are the only company to have this available, so it’s an exclusive feature to Littlstar on the PSVR. The community was asking us for this because Sony doesn’t have a proper player to support it, so this was really an effort for the community. There were people offering to pay us for it, but we’re offering it for free and just asking for registration. This will enable content creators to preview and showcase content on the PlayStation without needing to go through a potentially lengthy process of upload/transcode/delivery via Littlstar. We’re excited to get this feature out there, and look forward to iterating with the community on future projects.”

There are a number of methods on both PC and mobile headsets for people to load up whatever videos they want stored locally or over of the Internet. Streaming content in VR can dramatically limit the quality of the video, though, and pornographic content typically runs against the rules imposed by sites like YouTube. So for those looking for a high-quality adult video, the best option typically is to download the video and then use an app that “sideloads” the content.

Sony’s own Media Player app appears to only support 360-degree videos and doesn’t support 3D content, though we haven’t tested ourselves. A large number of adult videos, however, are shot in a 180-degree format while some others are shot in 3D. Adding support for this content might essentially establish Littlstar as the go-to app for folks looking to watch this type of content on PlayStation 4.
