Since it debuted late last year, Samsungs’ Milk VR has become one of the go-to spots for 360º video on the Gear VR, which until recently did not have support for YouTube’s 360º videos. In the past year a number of pieces have debuted on the platform including experimental films like MansLaughter, content from the NBA and the Olympics. Presumably (because Samsung has not released any formal numbers) thousands of people have used the app, and based on our own analytics, have used it to watch and hide their virtual reality porn.
But among all the videos, there are five which stand above the rest in terms of total viewership:
Number 5 – GONE Episode 1: Pilgrim (Samsung, Skybound Entertainment and Wevr)
The first episode of the original thriller quickly shot to number 5, following its launch on December 8. Join Meredith, Emilia’s mother, for a familiar day at the playground. The day takes an unfortunate turn when Emilia disappears in plain sight. Viewers can look around and find important clues that point to what conspired.
Number 4 – Start Here: GONE Tutorial (Samsung, Skybound Entertainment and Wevr)
The GONE tutorial introduces viewers to Samsung Milk VR’s new “exploratory video” technology: learn how to investigate the world of GONE. The tutorial debuted alongside episode one on December 8 and is the first chance to meet Emilia, a young, curious soul who may always be just out of reach.
Number 3 – The Martian VR Experience (20th Century Fox Innovation Lab, MPC)
With its debut timed to the launch of the new Samsung Gear VR on November 20, The Martian VR Experience ushers in a brand-new era of immersive entertainment with this exclusive sneak peek. This thrilling preview allows you to fly onto the surface of Mars and experience key scenes from the upcoming adventure in a 360-degree virtual reality environment.
Number 2 – The Dive (Samsung Australia, Rapid VR)
Slip beneath the waves of the Pacific Ocean off the coasts of Australia and come face to face with the ocean’s most feared predator – the Great White Shark.
And the Number 1 most popular piece of content on Samsung Milk VR this year is – Dew VR Snow
(Mountain Dew, Firstborn) A live-action snowboarding virtual reality experience takes fans on a 360-degree adventure through the Utah backcountry with Olympic snowboarders Danny Davis and Scotty Lago.
