Codecs: H264 vs H265

H264 and H265 are types of codecs. Codecs are names for processes that compress and decompress large file types like video. Because we record high quality, 180 degree stereoscopic video, our videos contain a lot of visual detail and information. They have to be compressed so that you can download a normal file size. Depending on the process we use, we call it an H264 or H265 file.

For some file types, mainly 4K versions, a H264 download option is available. The switch to H265 occurred a couple of years ago due to its higher compression efficiency.

H265 offers:

  • Smaller file sizes
  • Less chance of buffering during streaming
  • Faster download speeds
  • More storage space freed up compared to H264 files

Incredible, right? Initially, H265 wasn't compatible with all devices, resulting in a mix of H264 and H265 encodes being offered. Over time, devices became more compatible with H265, allowing us to make the switch.

H264 codec is still offered in 4K due to its status as an industry standard and user preference. We see no visual difference in quality between the different codecs. The resolution is the really important factor, and we offer 4K, 5K, 6K, 7K, and 8K resolutions as our standards for download at BabeVR.

Should I Download Porn in 4K, 6K, 7K, or 8K?

Great question. There are different considerations for downloading or streaming BaDoink Studios’ VR porn. One thing you should always consider is what your headset can handle. For example, in an older headset like the Oculus Rift, you may not see the difference between 4K and 6K.

For Streaming:

  • After the type of headset, the speed of your internet connection should be your top consideration.
  • A reliable and high-speed internet connection allows for streaming VR porn in the highest quality.
  • Unreliable or slow internet can cause frequent buffering, getting in the way of your VR porn experience.
  • Prism VR Player enhances the streaming process, with an API and design that’s optimized for our VR porn content.
  • Downloading and linking Prism VR Player to your BaDoink Studios account improves the VR content experience compared to streaming via the headset’s internet browser.

For Downloading:

  • The file type selection is crucial for downloading.
  • Ensure the selected file type is compatible with your headset.
  • Consider storage space, download time, and resolution importance when choosing a file type.
  • For the latest headsets like Quest 3 or Apple Vision Pro with good download speeds, opt for 7K or 8K downloads.
  • 5K or 6K downloads are also good options if storage space is limited or the highest image quality is less critical.
  • A wide range of file types is available to suit everyone’s needs.
Why are Different File Types Available to Download?

VR headset technology is a diverse market. We go the extra mile to accommodate all users no matter what headset they’re currently using. For the best possible viewing experience, it’s necessary to offer a range of files that are optimized for everyone’s headsets, internet connections, plus their online and offline capabilities. Headset providers are generally trending towards file type uniformity, but we still aren’t there yet. Once you decide which file you’d like to download, you can simply look for the same file type every time we release a new scene.

What is the Difference Between Regular and VR Porn?

VR Porn is an immersive sexual experience like no other. Virtual Reality offers intimacy and involvement that simply cannot be rivaled by traditional 2D porn. Our aim in VR is to make you involuntarily reach out and touch the pornstar in front of you! Where regular porn leaves you separated from the action and stranded as a passive voyeur, VR porn puts you right in the middle of the action. Studies show that arousal is significantly increased in people watching VR porn over traditional 2D!

You’re going to see your favorite pornstars as you’ve never seen them before, and you’ll be able to get up close and sexual with VR performers such as Adriana Chechik, Valentina Nappi, Angela White, Blake Blossom, Kendra Sunderland, Gianna Dior, Layla Jenner, and Xxlayna Marie in fully immersive VR. With the recent move to 8K and the latest headset releases including the Meta Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro, you’ll be transported like never before. New lenses are of the highest quality ever seen and the experience of using the devices has never been smoother or more comfortable. We’re in the best moment there’s ever been for virtual reality porn. It’s time to join the next generation of porn.
