Minimum System Requirements

Jaunt Player is currently available on both Mac and Windows computers. Please see requirements below.

Minimal Requirements Mac

  • MacOS 10.10 Yosemite or later
  • Macbook Pro Late 2013 or more recent 
  • 8GB Ram or greater
  • Note that Oculus Mac Runtime is not compatible with High Sierra as of January 2018, therefore Jaunt Player is incompatible with MacOS 10.13 / High Sierra

A discrete GPU is recommended for best performance.

Minimal Requirements Windows

  • Windows 8.1 or later
  • Core i7 4790 CPU or higher
  • NVidia GTX 760 or higher
  • 8 GB RAM or greater

A CPU with hyper-threading capabilities is recommended for playback of higher bit-rate videos (30- 50 Mbps) without any stuttering or degraded quality.

Be sure to set your GPU’s power mode to “maximum performance.” For NVidia GPUs, this setting is located in the NVidia control panel. The default setting, “adaptive”, can impact performance by throttling resources and can lead to tracking judder even at low CPU/GPU usage. 

If you continue to experience tracking judder during playback, check your CPU usage. If it is over 100%, we recommend using a lower-bitrate encoding.

Using Oculus Rift

If you are using a Oculus Rift DK2 with your Mac, be sure to have Oculus Runtime version installed:
