Viewing VR Streams

We found that the Stripchat VR videos recorded with CaptureGem are best viewed using HereSphere, available on the Steam store. However, any VR video viewing app should work. In HereSphere, set the videos to Fisheye and side-by-side (SBS), and it helps to reduce the field of view (FOV) to 120 degrees.

A full list can be seen here.
What's the best way to watch VR recordings?
We have found that they are best viewed using HereSphere, available on the Steam store. In HereSphere, go into the advanced settings set the videos to Fisheye and side-by-side (SBS), and reduce the Field of View (FOV) to 120 degrees. Make sure to also set the aspect ratio to ‘auto’ or else the videos will appear stretched. Note that any VR video viewing app that can access your local filesystem should work.
I'm having trouble recording models from Chaturbate. What could be the reason?
Make sure you are entering the model's username in all lower-case, same as in the URL bar. Also VPNs can sometimes disrupt the recording, so you may want to disable any active VPN.
Is CaptureGem also available for macOS and Linux?
As of a recent update, CaptureGem is now available for macOS! You can find the download links above. In the future we may support Linux as well but there is no timeline.
What benefits do I get by activating the Premium Tier?
By activating the premium tier, you will be able to record unlimited models at once for any duration without a cap, and can auto-start recordings when models come online. All of the advanced settings are also unlocked. You will also help support our ongoing development to make a better product. Thank you for your support!
The VR recordings sometimes disconnect early. How do I fix this?
There could be many possible reasons for this. First of all, make sure you have a fast enough Internet connection. Second, you can try using a VPN, as sometimes service providers rate-limit streams or cause other issues. You can also try increasing the network timeout setting. As a workaround, you can also reduce the disconnect retry setting to one second so that recordings immediately restart, and later on concatenate the videos with an editor. Feel free to reach out for help in our Discord if you encounter this issue.
How do I understand what the different settings do?
You can hover over each setting with your mouse cursor to see the tooltip. If you have further questions, please ask in our Discord.
Can this record privates?
No, unfortunately private recording is not supported.
What is the difference between CaptureGem.exe and recorderd.exe?
CaptureGem.exe is the user interface part of the application. recorderd.exe is a multi-threaded child process which handles the recording of the models and state management. The two processes communicate via web sockets, which is also why Windows Firewall asks for permission.
What programming languages were used to develop this?
CaptureGem.exe the user interface was developed with Electron.js in TypeScript and styled with MUI Joy. recorderd.exe, the child process, was programmed in Golang due to its better performance, and makes use of Go routines, which are ideal for this since they are multi-threaded and asynchronous.
Why does the VR video appear too thin or stretched?
As mentioned above, if you are watching with HereSphere make sure to set the aspect ratio to ‘auto’. If you are using a different VR viewing app, you will need to adjust the aspect ratio there as well.
