Video Format Support
Whirligig supports DirectShow, Media Foundation and VideoLan media. In practice what this means is that without installing any codecs you can play back avi's and if you install the related codecs you can play back those video formats.

Important Notice.
Without the codecs correctly installed you will find only a small amount of files can be played back. I have written a guide in the dissusion board to help get the codecs installed and working for Whirligig.[url]http://steamcommunity.com/app/451650/discussions/0/364042262873027118/[/url]

What's New

A new default build update find below a list of updates since the previous default update version 4.12.

- Added Hue to the adjustment menu.

- Added a new adjustment menu to Barrel giving more options including height degrees, 100-360 width degrees and sphere squash.

- New Curved system added replacing Curved cinema removed.

- Locks added to sliders in the settings menu.

- Updated Unity3D to 2017 1.1.1f1.

- Made VR default on if you have a headset plugged in.

There are several bug fixes along the way as well, which I haven’t listed here. Probably the largest updates are the new version of Unity3D as this is a big leap in version number and subsequently adds many new VR improvements, the new Barrel options and the new Cinema options.
