How to Play GoPro Videos on Diffferent VR Devices

Why I failed to play VR videos from GoPro?

The reason GoPro VR Player failed to play the video because decoding failed. Try to change the video plugin, GoPro VR Player will utilize another backend to interpret video thus it can take care of your issue. You can change video plugin through the Preferences menu. Of course, GoPro VR Player will pick the best default video module as indicated by your OS and on the off chance that you are utilizing an Oculus or not. Changing the video module will specifically influence GoPro VR Player video interpreting capacities. GoPro VR Player will utilize an alternate video backend as per this setting after you restart the player to apply it. Tap on the easy route called "Reset to suggested settings" in the start menu.

Part 1. What Should I Do to Make VR Videos After Shooting with GoPro

Step 1. Take each SD card out of its camera and transfer the footage into folders named by camera numbers.

Step 2. Import the folders of footage into Adobe Premiere, and get the clips perfectly in sync. I depend on the sound from the cameras to ensure everything is impeccably arranged. I listen for my clap, utilize that as the pin point, and drag it directly into another succession.

Step 3. Play every one of the sequences together to ensure everything sounds in a state of harmony.

Step 4. Export each camera's angle individually.

Step 5. Drag all of the perfectly synced files into Autopano Video.

Step 6. Permit this magical software to automatically analyze each camera angle and fasten together an equirectangular projection.

Step 7. Double tap the join to open up Autopano Giga for some calibrating. Tweak to your heart's content.

Step 8. Save your project in Giga, then export your stitched video from Autopano Video at the maximum resolution that h.264 can handle—4096 x 2048.

Step 9. Take after strides 1–8 for the majority of your shots and at whatever time you moved the apparatus position.

Step 10. Bring the greater part of your sewed shots into Premiere to alter them as you would with some other video —trim, reorder, add music, and export using the same settings as you did in Autopano.

Step 11. Transfer your equirectangular mp4 document to Wistia.

Step 12. When it's handled, head into Customize, and tap the case named "360 degree video" in the Controls tab. Note: You must enable 360 video in the Beta Features section of your Wistia account for this option to appear.

Step 13. Sit back and enjoy your 360 spherical video. Bonus: You can right tap the player and select 4K, in the event that you need to watch in the most astounding quality conceivable.
