    I can't seem to find an answer to this. When I play a 180 or 360 degree video on my Lenovo Explorer everything looks huge. The people and objects look like giants, some videos are worse than others. I've tried "Mermaid VR" and "Skybox" and have the same issue with both. There seem to be some settings in each ( a cross with arrows) but I can't get it to actually change anything so it looks acceptable -and maybe that's not what that is even for? I've read where it is the fault of the video and how it was recorded in the first place, but I'd like to think there may be a way to correct it at least somewhat. There's a video collection called "Amaze 3D" that you can get fro the Windows store and that looks like it's scaled correctly (or very close) and looks nice. And yes, I did try it with porn as well and the chicks look 20 feet tall, I'm not into giants.

    Just did some more reading and I guess I can answer my own question - it's just the video. Some are good and some are not.
