XBVR Is a streaming media server with user-defined categories, watchlist, thumbnails, video previews, funscript support and more. It integrates natively with both Heresphere and DeoVR (presenting a browser experience similar to SLR) and, to me, greatly improves the playback experience for local files/funscripts.
XBVR Has good documentation, but lacks (from what I’ve seen) a full step-by-step guide for setup. If anyone in the community is interested, I’d love to correct that, so click below!
I am interested in an XBVR guide!
“I’m interested, let me give you my opinion!”
Should the guide should be for Docker, or Windows? Docker can be better as it supports running on NAS devices, or any OS that can run Docker, but does require some knowledge.
Guide should be basic bare-bones to get XBVR up and running, or a more in-depth optimized setup?
Basic: “I’ll figure the rest out on my own”
Optimized: A few extra steps for better performance
Advanced: Optimized setup + Post-install guide
If you’re still reading and giving feedback, thank you! I have a rough document together with a lot of this info and look forward to (hopefully) making something useful for you all!
Thanks to all who have provided feedback! Based upon the poll results I will be moving forward with the guide!
Based upon responses and practicality, I will target a basic setup + post-install guide for Windows, and a more advanced Linux/Docker setup guide for users looking to host XBVR on a NAS/Server/VM after that.
If there are any use cases or inclusions you would like to see in the guide please feel free to add those here, or otherwise I’ll be accepting feedback/enhancement requests once done
Stumbled over this topic. Wasn’t aware of this software. I am quite interested. Is it possible that you add a section how to use it with toys like “The Handy” and “OSR2”…to play the funscripts? Or is there already a How To available? I am not sure if I understood how to stream the videos with lets say DeoVR and use a toy…
XBVR will feed the funscript back to your player (Heresphere/Deo) much like when using local/network files in those players. For the OSR2 I’m not sure how that works since it requires multiple funscript files, but maybe someone else can add their expertise for that down the line. As long as your Handy(/Kiroo/etc.) is synced to Heresphere or Deo, it should “just work”.
TLDR: No extra setup required!
This will be touched on in the guide Thank you for taking the time to give feedback!
Makes the usage of “The Handy” more convenient, in my opinion. Maybe I store my content in the future on my NAS and let XBVR run. What I still miss with all the toys out there is an easy plug and play solution because most of the time I am just to lazy to install my OSR etc.
Please feel free to add this as a comment when I have the main guide posted! It’s already quite a lot of bulk just setting up the major features in XBVR + all the explanations/etc. I don’t want to overwhelm too much, but I do intend to add in additional features (like plugins) down the line as requested.
Version 1.0 of the guide is up, including advanced post-setup. Thank you all for providing your input!
Linux/Docker/NAS will be coming shortly, but as mentioned in the main guide, you can set everything up on windows, and export your configurations to later import in Docker if you want to get started now!
Awesome! Will give it a try…only need some spare time . Do you have a recommendation how to store the videos and funscripts in folders of the server e.g. everything “flat” lets say in “/myvideos” or “/myvideos/brazzers” … ?
XBVR Doesn’t care - it will grab everything recursively (all subfolders) - so you can organize whatever way makes most sense! I personally have a scripted/unscripted folder, then folders for each actress and one for scenes with multiple actresses, but you can do whatever works best for you.
BTW Basic Setup (assuming you have a relatively fast PC and dont have 1000s of VR Videos) should take only about an hour I’d estimate, with a bulk of that being waiting on scans/scrapes to complete.
