Why GoPro VR Player won't play VR video from Gopro?

GoPro VR Player is a 360-degree video & photo player for computers at their original quality. By default, GoPro VR Player will choose the best default video plugin according to your OS and if you are using an Oculus or not. GoPro VR Player will not play some Gopro videos due to decoding issue (http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/GoPro_VR_Player_-_Video_decoding).

Fortunately, you can change video plugin through the Preferences menu, which will directly affect GoPro VR Player video decoding abilities. GoPro VR Player will use a different video backend according to this setting after you restart the player to apply it. Then tap Reset to "Reset to suggested settings" in the start menu.
