Bob- Good luck with the Oculus Go. I heard a rumor(as I have no way to confirm that) that Facebook has pulled the YT VR app to prevent Oculus Go owners from viewing YT VR content.
Last summer Facebook made DEO VR remove the paste access because Oculus Rift people were pasting YT URL's.
On the You Tube conflict with Oculus, I finally got a work flow to view YT VR in 3D in the Rift.
First I had to open a Steam account which allows you to buy non Oculus apps and run them in the Rift. I understand you can do the same in the Oculus Go. Then, thanks to an AMD engineer, I learned that the Steam VR desktop has a paste URL for video that works for You Tube. The app does cost $15 but is worth it as it opens many features for VR in the HMD. It also has a great data center where you can measure your system performance while running a game. I don't know how much of this is available for the Go but I can assure you the Oculus is going to keep you busy learning new things for quite awhile. The Oculus support forums are good for finding out little secrets of the devices too.
BTW- I've downloaded over 70 apps now and have something fascinating in each one. Try Google Earth in VR, The Human Body showed me how to interpret my EKG readings off my Apple watch. You can select various conditions and it displays a 3D of the heart and the blood flowing along with the EKG. Anyway, It's a whole new world with the VR stuff that it isn't all just about games.
