Hi, is there a way to play 360° video that have Equirectangular Projection with openCV in python? When searching i couldn't find anything related with openCV and 360° video playing. Just to be clear i want to be able to get for example front view of the camera or back view and i want to be able to play it like regular non-360°-video. Is this even possible to do with openCV and would the playing would be smooth even? Is there maybe already a made function in OpenCV that i can use for this?

EDIT: Here is an example, this is Equirectangular image, first lets finish with image and then i can do the video image description

and this is for what i am looking for done image

2 ordinary cameras are not enough for 360°. you either need 6 cube views or 2 fisheye lens cams.

@supra56 I saw this before, but whatever i tried i couldn't install simpleCV. @berak i already have the video in 360, now i just want to play that video on computer using openCV and i want for example just front view if camera. I will edit the question and add an example now for what i am looking for
