GoPro Releases Final Version of VR Player 2.3 With Major Changes
GoPro VR Player 2.3
Today we are happy to publish the final version of GoPro VR Player 2.3!
This new update brings a couple new features and some bug fixes.
A brand new menu bar with all sorts of useful options and settings has been added. The keyboard shortcuts are also visible in the menu bar.
Facebook 360 video as input
Many customers wanted the support of Facebook 360 3:2 cubemap videos in GoPro VR Player. This is now possible with this new release.
We’ve added a loop toggle to change the way a playlist or a file is looped. You can loop a playlist, a single file or deactivate the loop.
Add some momentum to direction change
With this new release, pan and keypress actions add some momentum to direction change. This option can be deactivated in the General settings.
Extract a print of the viewport to best quality
A new print screen option is now available and called “Print Screen HQ”.
With Ctrl+Alt+P or Cmd+Alt+P a snapshot of the viewport is registered in the highest quality. The snapshot size is linked to current pixel density of the view.
The file browser points to the latest opened folder
In this version, we decided to use by default the latest opened folder when selecting Open Media.
OpenVR SDK version 1.0.6
OpenVR is an API and runtime that allows access to VR hardware from multiple vendors without requiring that applications have specific knowledge of the hardware they are targeting.
Adobe Premiere Plugin Update
We have continued work on the plugin and added a way to restore the player once exited.
Possible crashes with the DirectShow backend when some video codecs are missing. More information here: GoPro VR Player – Video decoding for Windows.
