How Do I Improve My Video Quality on Quest 2?

The Oculus Quest 2 is an incredible device that allows users to enjoy virtual reality experiences without the need for a PC or console. However, if you’re not satisfied with the video quality of your Quest 2, there are a few things you can do to improve it.

1. Adjust your IPD

The IPD (inter-pupillary distance) is the distance between your eyes. If the IPD on your Quest 2 isn’t set correctly, it can cause image blurriness and eye strain. To adjust your IPD, go to Settings > Device > Configure Rift > Eye Distance and follow the instructions.

2. Clean your lenses

Dirty lenses can also cause image blurriness and reduce overall video quality. Use a microfiber cloth (or any soft cloth) to clean the lenses regularly.

3. Improve your lighting

Poor lighting conditions can negatively impact video quality on the Quest 2. Make sure you’re in a well-lit room with no bright lights shining directly on the headset or in front of the cameras.

4. Check for updates

Make sure that your Quest 2 is running on the latest software version as updates often include improvements to video quality.

5. Adjust graphics settings in games or apps

Some games or apps may have graphics settings that can be adjusted to improve video quality. Check these settings and adjust them accordingly.

Tips for Streaming Content

If you’re streaming content like movies or TV shows on your Quest 2, here are some additional tips:

  • Make sure you have a strong Wi-Fi connection.
  • Lower the bitrate of your streaming service.
  • Avoid streaming during peak hours when internet traffic is high.
  • If possible, connect your Quest 2 to your router via Ethernet cable for a more stable connection.


Improving video quality on the Quest 2 can greatly enhance your virtual reality experience. By adjusting your IPD, cleaning your lenses, improving lighting, checking for updates, and adjusting graphics settings, you can get the most out of your Quest 2. And if you’re streaming content, make sure to follow the additional tips to ensure a smooth viewing experience.
