VR

Note: This project is now outdated.

You may be interested instead to check out this plugin if using video.js: videojs-panorama

For a minimal 360 player (without video.js) see this project: simple-360-player.

A video.js plugin that turns a video element into a HTML5 Panoramic 360 video player. Project video onto different shapes. Optionally supports Oculus Rift.

View Demo

Getting Started

Download videojs (Note: The plugin requires uncompressed video.js unless you are using version > 4.1.0)

In your web page:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="video-js.css">
<video id="video"
       class="video-js vjs-default-skin"
       src="movie.mp4"
       controls>
</video>
<script src="video.js"></script>
<script src="dist/videojs.vr.min.js"></script>
<script>
videojs('video', {}, function() {
  var player = this;
  player.vr({projection: 'Sphere'}); // initialize the plugin, 'Plane' projection by default
});
</script>

Host on a HTTP Server that supports byte range requests if you want the seek bar to work (e.g. Apache).

Oculus Rift Support

This plugin uses the vr.js project for reading the Rift's sensor data (via a Chrome plugin). See vr.js for installation instructions.

To enable rift support, include the libs/vr/*.js files after the three.js script tag. If a user does not have the vr.js plugin installed, the plugin should work as normal.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="libs/video-js-4.1.0/video-js.css">
<script src="libs/video-js-4.1.0/video.dev.js"></script>
<script src="libs/three.min.js"></script>

<!-- vr stuff is optional, must be after THREE is defined -->
<script src="libs/vr/vr.js"></script>
<script src="libs/vr/OculusRiftControls.js"></script>
<script src="libs/vr/OculusRiftEffect.js"></script>
