For reference, here’s Youtube’s page on getting the videos to work and some handy resources. It’s not easy or straight forward to get the content shot on a 360 camera on a place that the most people will see it yet (YouTube) – but that’s how these things go. If you’re going to use the THETA S for higher quality videos, time lapse is the way to go, but for now, enjoy experimenting. More and more VR headsets are shipping or will be soon, the content we make now will be viewed on these later.
Speaking of, you can see the video above that shows the phone experience, also shot on a 360 camera, inception.
What are publications, marketers and brands going to do? They already said and will be soon – Popular Science announced they’re moving to more issues per year and focusing on things like 360 videos.
Our angle is to educate and share how we do things, that’s how we’ll be using 360 videos for now, we’ll see where it takes us and we take it.
