A head mount display (HMD) includes a processor and a memory. The memory includes code as instructions that cause the processor to send an indication that a view perspective has changed from a first position to a second position in a streaming video, determine a rate of change associated with the change from a first position to a second position, and reduce a playback frame rate of the video based on the rate of change for the view perspective.
