3rd party YouTube developer Webrox has launched a new YouTube immersive app for Windows Mixed Reality. The new app called Tubecast VR enables you to watch 360 degree YouTube and local video files on a Windows Mixed Reality headset. With the app you can watch 360 YouTube videos in Windows Mixed Reality in up to 8k, download YouTube videos and also supports local content.
You don’t actually need a 3rd party app to view YouTube 360 videos in WMR as there is a free extension for Microsoft Edge that enables 360 videos in Windows Mixed Reality from Microsoft for free but this is an immersive app rather than just a browser so you get a better experience browsing for videos.
There is a free trial version available in which you can watch the first 20 videos without restrictions and then only the first 30 seconds of each video. The full app costs £4.19 from the Microsoft Store. You
Tubecast VR is the first mediaplayer on the “Windows Store” for watching 360° YouTube videos within your immersive headset.
