Spherical video in Android: 50 shades darker

Day 1 /  / Track 2  /  RU / Хардкор. Сложный низкоуровневый доклад, требующий от слушателя знаний технологии. /

A few years ago 360-degree video was a rarity, but nowadays due to VR it gets more popular every day, and its playback becomes relevant for a lot of mobile developers. How to handle it?

This talk will cover different aspects of working with spherical video in Android: spherical video formats, different projections, streaming and the «right» way to play such videos on Android Cardboard, Daydream and GearVR. No abstract musings — just the technical aspects!
