Tubecast was one of the better third-party YouTube apps you could get on Windows, but now you can take that experience to the world of VR. Webrox, the developer behind Tubecast, has launched Tubecast VR, a player built just for watching immersive 360-degree YouTube videos and local media via a Windows Mixed Reality headset.
The app supports multiple 360-degree video format from YouTube at up to 8K resolution, as well as your own local media stored on a hard drive. The interface also looks pretty straightforward, offering quick player controls, video search, and navigation via a video overlay that you manipulate with a pair of Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers.
Here's a quick rundown of Tubecast VR's highlights:
- Watch 360° videos from YouTube in any format (up to 8K)

Tubecast VR is available with a free trial that allows watching up to 20 videos without restrictions. After that point ,you can only check out the first thirty seconds of each video unless you buy the app for $4.99.
