VR videos are normal videos in terms of codec. So you should be able to stream it via UMS.

I think yes, you should. First, a distinction should be made: 360-degree videos, often just called 360 Videos, can be viewed with Cardboard and other VR headsets, but they’re not quite the same as VR videos. That’s because proper VR videos add the illusion of depth.

Most video playback apps that can connect to DLNA/UPnP servers are supported, on iOS and Android

In terms of codec, VR videos are the same as standard videos. As a result, you should be able to stream it with UMS.
