PS4 Added 360 Degree Photos And Videos to PlayStation VR (PSVR)

Now its the turn of PlayStation to provide the 360-degree experience to you in PSVR

As Sony has already launched PlayStation virtual reality, i.e., PSVR to the market and with this, it’s also making it more open and technologically advanced for the users. With the new updated console’s Media Player, now users can enjoy 360-degree photos and videos through the headset. Not only this but now users can also boost the low-quality music by the new high-definition FLAC format.

You can load any media stuff with the VR mode via USB and play it through the media player but do remember that the old YouTube videos are still not supported for you to enjoy them into the virtual reality environment. Only that media file which is captured into the 360 degrees will support the VR environment, and the given formats will be MKV, AVI, MP4, MPEG2 PS, MPEG2 TS or AVCHD, JPEG, BMP or PNG.
