1) Getting Started (Oculus Quest on SteamVR)

In case you weren't aware, you can already use both Quests with LIV!

The caveat right now is that you have to run SteamVR on your Quest, which means that you will need to hook it up to a PC. You can accomplish this through Oculus Link/Virtual Desktop (video tutorial) or ALVR (video tutorial).

If you can get your Quest to play nice with SteamVR, you're good to fire up LIV on your desktop and set up a regular mixed reality camera profile, just like you would for PCVR.

Beware that the Quest is not a content creator-friendly headset. You will have to calibrate often due to coordinate drifting, as well as if you ever press the Oculus room reorient button.

Stand-alone Quest support is still in the works, make sure you sign up here to be notified whenever we have more to share. We're determined to bring you the best experience possible and we don't want to make any compromises.

Stay tuned! It's coming sooner rather than later.

  • Hello,

    I am having issues setting up LIV with my Quest 2. I have everything installed and callibrated, once in game, I am able to stream the first person view from the headset, but unfortunately nothing else. If I open the LIV menu in game and select an avatar, different camera, set up the camera angles, it does not apply changes once I return to the game. I have also tried to enable the viewfinder several times, and unfortunately while the box shows up, it is always plain white with a small star in the middle. It will not show me in mixed reality, or an avatar if that is what I select. Is there anything else I can try? Thank you for your time! -Jordan

  • Hey Jordan,

    Your viewfinder being completely white sounds like a GPU assignment issue. Are you on a laptop? If so, you'll want to check out fix 2 in this article:

    Apart from that, make sure you're capturing the LIV output and not the game you're playing.
