Updated 8th August 2017.

1. VLC 360°

VLC has become the first major video player app to play 360° videos. It looks and feels like any other version of VLC, it can open and play all your videos, audio files or discs.

This is only an early build and there will be plenty more to come. They say there will be future releases available for Android, iOS and Xbox One with the mobile versions using the phone sensors to navigate inside the videos. They’re also hoping to support VR headsets like Vive, Daydream, Oculus or OSVR in 2017 and get 3D audio playback, including head tracking headphones which sounds cool.

For MacOS 10.10 (and later) Note that this build is not signed with a GateKeeper certificate. Therefore, you need to right-click on the application to select Open to launch them for the first time after download.

2. Go Pro VR Player

A stripped-back interface makes it very easy to use. There’s no button-packed toolbar or nested right-click menu, just drag and drop your video and it starts playing immediately.
