The description of Home Theater VR App

Home Theater VR is an advanced virtual reality video player, PC streamer, Web Browser, and Image Viewer. It's designed to be compatible with nearly every Android phone and headset.
Note: This is a paid app, but you can evaluate it in trial mode for as long as you want before purchasing.

A Unique VR Theater Experience
Home Theater VR is unlike any VR player you've used before. It was designed to be different and to offer unmatched flexibility and features.
You have the ability to control everything about the app, from inside the app, without being dependent on any external VR services. It doesn't require that your phone is compatible with Cardboard, Daydream, GearVR/Oculus, or anything else. All adjustments including IPD are handled using the built-in settings.

Video Sources
• Local Files - Stored on your phone or memory card. Use the in-app file browser, or use "Open With" or "Send To" from other file browsers.
• Web Streams - Online streaming sites such as Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc.
• Http Video Streams - Streams from VLC, FFMPEG, or other video streaming software. A companion app called "Stream Helper" is provided for PC, which uses VLC to stream video files or your Windows desktop.
• Web Browser - Browse the web and sites like Youtube right in the app. (A gamepad is recommended to use this feature)
• PC Monitor Mode - Mirror your PC monitor in VR. Useful for gaming, web browsing, reading, or anything else you do with your PC. A companion app called "HTVR PC Streamer" is provided, which offers a simple one-click connection, while also giving you full control of the stream quality.

Note: PC Monitor streaming works only on Windows 8 and above.
There are 2 stream types, DDA and SDG.
DDA requires an Intel CPU, and can stream at up to 60 FPS with very low latency, so it's ideal for any PC activity, including fast-paced gaming.
SDG mode is more widely compatible, but has a lower frame rate and higher latency, so it may not be ideal for certain activities.
