Phone, tablets, and even Google cardboard can play these kinds of 360 videos, but for some reason, DK2 has been left outside the party. To truly appreciate the 360 option on Youtube now, you absolutely have to try it out!
EDIT: The support for hardware accelerated video playback is very limited in Windows 7 and will result in error messages such as “Unknown” when trying to play a lot of formats. He hasn’t gotten to falling back to software decoding when its unable to play those.
Note that this error is specific to Windows 7: Windows 8 can hardware accelerate any H.264 content and Windows 10 will support even more formats out of the box.
