I was looking for a way of capturing a screenshot of a Youtube VR video e.g angel falls 8K and saving it at full resolution for use in Quest 2. What this gave me was a picture with 360deg left right in the top half and 360 top to bottom in the lower half of the picture. Is there a way of getting a format which works with DeoVR which seems to the best way of viewing pictures on the Quest 2?
