CyberLink launched Power Media Player MR, a new app designed to enable Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality headset users to enjoy both VR and conventional media content through the new devices.

Power Media Player MR supports 360° and 3D-360° videos, as well as 360° photos.

This means that users can relive cherished memories in VR.

It also integrates YouTube search and browse functionality directly into the app, unlocking the web's leading source of VR video content for users.

“Using our new app is like going back to the first time you ever watched a movie, an exciting, novel experience that seems to shut out peripheral noises and distractions.

“It offers the ideal viewing environment no matter where you are.
