XR Video Player
XR headsets offer a variety of ways to display videos compared to traditional monitors. With their multi-axis positional tracking and dual-screen rendering capabilities, XR devices can fulfill the need for browsing panoramic videos or dynamic materials in a 3D environment. Cocos CreatorXR v1.1.0 provides a versatile XR Video Player that optimizes video rendering pipelines for XR devices and supports switching display windows, as well as various styles of videos such as 180-degree and 360-degree. Additionally, the player offers interactive features to assist with playback control. By simply adding or replacing video resources, you can easily develop video playback functionality, simplifying the creative process and lowering the barrier to entry.
