Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Provide support for 360 VR videos.
https://docs.brightcove.com/en/video-cloud/brightcove-player/guides/360-plugin.html

One thing to note here, is that it seems there are no standardized methods in html5 yet to indicate 360'ishness of videos. So we will require data attribute annotations or something.

A secondary challenge is that you need really high resolution video for this to be somewhat useful, and our pipelines are still somewhat flacky on that front.
