VLC media player now supports 360-degree videos

VLC’s creators VideoLan teamed up with 360-degree camera maker Giroptic to develop its system, which can display photos, panoramas and videos. You can use your mouse and keyboard to control your point of view in the footage. VideoLan says it will make these features available on its mobile apps as well, and let users navigate the clips by moving their accelerometer-carrying devices around. It also said it will support VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift, Google’s Daydream and the HTC Vive in 2017. The app is also getting 360-degree audio support “including head tracking headphones,” says the company, although it’s not clear when that will happen. – Cherlynn Low, Engadget http://engt.co/2fPNi3L
