Testing VR 360 Video Stream Playback

Test the player to play VR 360 video stream in Google Chrome

Use these instructions for quick installation and configuration of the server. In addition to that, you can connect to our demo server to perform the tests.

Test plan

  1. Connect to the web-based interface of the WCS server
  2. Publish a video stream from a VR camera to WCS
  3. Play the published stream using a regular player
  4. Play the published stream using a special VR player


Testing the player in the Google Chrome browser

1. On the WCS server side, in the settings file, set the necessary bitrate limits and SDP parameters




2. Log in to the web interface of the server

Login to WCS


3. From the menu on the left side of the page, select “Media Devices”



4. On the page that opens, in the “Send Video” section, set the necessary parameters for capturing the stream from the camera:

  • resolution 3072 × 1536
  • FPS 24 (when broadcasting from a browser, the camera that we used for testing only supports such FPS)
  • TCP transport




5. At the top of the same page we publish a stream from a VR camera



6. In a new browser tab, open the “Player” example from the menu on the left side of the page and try to play the published video stream. As you can see, in a “regular” WebRTC player, the stream from the VR camera is not collected in one picture



7. Now try to play the VR video stream in a special player. In this case, the stream from the VR camera is collected in one picture and you can change the viewing direction (right, left, top, bottom) with the mouse.
