GoPro VR Player 3.0 beta1

by benji33 » Thu Jun 29, 2017 8:14 am

We are happy to publish the first beta release of the new GoPro VR Player 3.0.

We added some very cool new features on GoPro VR Player. Here's a detailed list of the new features.

· OpenVR is now available on the new macOS High Sierra
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.
Through GoPro VR Player, OpenVR is now supported on macOS High Sierra 10.13.
Some improvements have been also added for a better support of GoPro VR Player on macOS and on MacBook with Intel Iris graphics.
We also update the OpenVR SDK to its 1.0.7 version for Windows.

· Added a "Playback Speed" item into the menu
Now the Playback menu and the settings add a Playback speed item to specify the speed of a video file. It can be normal speed (1.0x), half speed (0.5x) and double speed (2.0x).

· Added an "Open recents" item into the menu
By selecting "Open recents" into the File menu you can access the five latest media files played into GoPro VR Player.

· You can now perform a benchmark on a video file
A benchmark mode can be activated when running the GoPro VR Player application from the command line.
Add the --benchmark X <video> argument where X is the number of iterations of the video file.

· Added a disable option for HMD to avoid launching VR runtimes
With this setting checked, the HMD detection is deactivated. It's useful when a HMD is installed and configured on a Desktop computer and you want use GoPro VR Player screen mode.

· Update of the VLC library
The libVLC can be embedded into an application to get multimedia capabilities. Windows version now uses the 2.2.6 version and the macOS version uses the version.

· Leap Motion SDK version 2.3.1
The Leap Motion SDK contains two basic libraries that define the API to the Leap Motion tracking data. The GoPro VR Player - Leap Motion documentation has also been updated.

· Oculus SDK version 1.14
The Oculus SDK enables you to build VR experiences for the Oculus Rift.

Enjoy it!
