Virtual-reality technology have improved tremendously and overturned the traditional sense of sensory experience. It is a 3D computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person through the use of sensory devices. But VR video is not easy to find and some videos might not be suitable for your VR headsets. In such case, you can use Video Converter Ultimate, a VR video converter to convert your non-VR video to VR video or convert VR video for specific VR device like HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift.
VR Video VS. 360-degree Video
The 360-degree video that capture the entire scene around the camera is not the same thing as VR. When playing the 360-degree videos/photos in a VR headset, you can look around and feel immersive in the scenery but not able to interact with it. You can watch most of these video/photos on a regular flat 2D screen but some VR video resources are limited to play in common players.
