Developers have brought to the public the 360-degree video assistance for the VLC app. You can use the new feature to take 360-degree pictures or record amazing videos. VLC had first launched approximately fifteen years ago. Since then, many people have been using it as their favorite when needing media-player software.
VLC is capable of handling without any effort a wide range of formats. The developers of the open-source media player have been working for quite a while at a new feature, and they have finally launched it. The new 360-degree video assistance is here, ready for all Android users. Your VLC app could be improved with this new update, bound to offer you a new perspective when taking pictures or filming.
The organization which lies at the foundation of the VLC player is VideoLAN. They have argued that new update represents the result of the collaboration established between Giroptiv, a VR specialist and VLC. Giroptic is also a 360-degree specialist who offered all the samples needed, and even expertise and code, making sure VLC is boosting with its new tool.
VLC 360 is provided by MacOS 10.10 and Windows 7. VideoLAN will work on including the new update in the new VLC 3.0 which will be soon launched on the market. If you are a fan of VLC and you are curious about the changes brought by the new app, you can take a look at the samples available online, also analyzing 360-degree videos.
If you have some videos on your phone and they were captured with a camera as good as the one on Samsung Gear 360, then you can convert them by using the 360-degree video assistance. Richard Ollier, the CEO and co-founder of Giroptic, argued that they are thrilled to have the possibility of attaching the new feature to the open-source media player.
The new technology will attract more VLC users who will be able to test the new feature and enjoy the outcome. VideoLAN has declared that future editions of VLC equipped with the new app will be available for Xbox One, iOS and Android. The smartphone versions will be ready to be used being outfitted with a handset’s accelerometer bound to explore videos and photos.
