360 Video Player for VR

Developed a 360 Video Playback for VR devices, HTC Vive and Oculus, can easily port to Gear VR and Daydream + Cardboard. The project consists of using a high poly sphere mesh with correct poly placement to minimise the distortion at the poles. Using a custom shader to invert the normals, the video can be wrapped around the mesh and viewed from inside the mesh. Using an embedded movie clip, with a matching Audio Source and the Material Override property I am able to produce a fully functioning immersive 360 video ready for a VR experience.

Hi Chris, Great job! Do you have a sample download of the project or is it really trivial to make one myself with the 5.6f version? I am looking into making a Gear 360 video playback for Gear VR. Cheers!
