    Hello
    I started a 360 degree wordpress website. My only problem is that I can’t figure out how to get my videos played. I understand this will play them. Can someone help me get started.
    Thanks

    panopress will not “play” anything on its own, it is only for embedding content created by other players

    to create an interactive 360° video player for embedding with panopress, you would use krpano

    http://krpano.com/video/

    also see kolor eyes 360 video hosting service

    https://eyes.kolor.com

    then you could embed it like this using panopress


    Error
    Javascript not activated

    (this 360° video of times square was a test using one kodak pixpro sp360 rotated 180° for 2 hemispheres, not 2 cameras back to back)

    Hi Sam,

    sorry it might be a bit off topic, but could you tell me, how you got the pixpro sp360 footage converted for using it with krpano. I tried all extraction methods but can’t get any video output, that has a correct format …

    Any hint appreciated
    Thanks a lot peter

    kolor autopano vide will stitch kodak pixpro 360 video into an equirectangular video for krpano or kolor eyes

    or VideoStitch

    or you could do a big frame by frame batch job in ptgui…

    Hi Sam,

    thank you for your quick response.
    I tried these tools. As i understand, all these tools need two or more videos to stitch an create a equirectangular projection. But in your example you wrote, that you have used only ONE SP360. So you have 1 video. Or did you render several videos from one recording? with the SP360 Software? If so, which output settings did you use?

    Sorry if my questions are dumb…

    i used one camera, but rotated 180° for 2nd half of sphere (like shooting a normal still pano), so motion on both sides is not synched etc

    this is why you can see some disappearing people as they cross the line between the 2 hemispheres, which were not shot at same time

    this is not ideal technique, 2 cameras back to back would be better of course, but this was just an early experiment

    Looking good! Do you know what the max available resolution is for shooting back to back like this? Do you know if there are any mounts available? This could be an affordable 360 video option!

    equi files were about 2560 × 1280 px

    2 of these back to back is pretty simple, half a popsicle stick would make a fine mount 🙂

    So I recon – you already tried stitching 2 kodak pixpro 360 and that did work out as a full 360/180 video, right? Could you please confirm they work in back-2-back mode for a full sphere?
