VLC Media Player Preview: Bringing 360 degree video playback for Mac, iOS support by 2017:
VLC application that lets you play basically any video format on practically any platform, is now ready to bring in a support for a whole new medium. They have just unveiled a technical preview that will enable its desktop app to play 360 degree videos. The preview is now available for Windows & Mac & hopefully the full version will be arriving somewhere by the starting of 2017 with VLC 3.0 arrival.
There is also a big relief foe Mac users, as we all know the Mac hardware is lacking motion tracker features, so in the case navigation controls requires mouse & keyboard input, but VideoLAN says iOS support is coming in the future for 360 degree video playback on iPhone & iPad too.
The 360 degree media support also extends its support to photos not only remaining up to the videos. So one can view panoramic pictures & feel like if you were present at the place where the image has been clicked. VLC 3.0 includes three models for 360 degree content – zoom, little planet & reverse little planet. The makers of VLC also worked with a company named Giroptic in helping them build & successfully test the new 360 degree media feature.
A separate version for Windows is also available & now it is very clear that VLC is making a big push in enabling VR experiences across all of it’s supported platforms & that’s a great news for all of us.
