What 360° video format is supported by PowerDVD 16?

CyberLink PowerDVD 16 currently supports the playback of 360° videos that are in the equirectangular projection format (looks like a world map view of the video sphere).

  • The equirectangular projection format of 360° video supported in PowerDVD 16 Ultra or Live versions:
  • The spherical projection format of 360 video (Not supported in PowerDVD 16):


If the 360° video file is not in the equirectangular projection format, you may need to use the tools that are included with your 360° video camera to convert it. Most 360 camera tools/video editors that support 360° video editing can output in this projection format.


  1. The 360° video playback feature is supported in PowerDVD 16 Ultra and Live versions newer than build 1907.
  2. PowerDVD 16 currently supports the playback of equirectangular 360° videos, but not 360° photos.
  3. Some CyberLink PowerDVD features are not available during 360° video playback, including 3D mode, rotate video, subtitles, play to (casting media, steaming media, etc.), etc.
  4. If CyberLink PowerDVD did not detect your equirectangular format of 360° video file, you can manually set the 360 source projection format.
