I'm trying out stereoscopic (SBS) gameplay videos from my HTC Vive. The result is cool but I need feedback on how this format works with different headsets/viewing methods. My current cardboard uses fresnel lenses and I'm quite interested in how it looks with/without barrel distortion. I just play the video normally and pop it into my viewer. As a side note I had YouTube ingest it as 3d video and I'm not sure what that does for cardboard, any feedback is appreciated. Thanks and enjoy.

FYI: the 3d video feature of YouTube disabled standard SBS and offers a head tracked version for cardboard or anaglyph for 2d monitors.

* Raises pinkie to corner of mouth * One million views, I guess a picture is worth a 1000 words. Some of the oddest places get the most views for me, also anything out of focus seems to cost popularity. I just love being able to share my perspective on a local business.

I'm in the million views club too, and same here, my strangest locations are the ones that get a ton of views.

New cardboard video! In my first attempt using a "real camera" (lumix g7) I have gotten quite good results. Went to New Smyrna Beach, FL to capture a 360x180 image then I overlayed a video from the same perspective. The effect is quite neat but I might pick up a wide angle lens soon in order to increase the video FOV. Enjoy. Any notes/tips/hints/likes/dislikes are appreciated.

Video is watermarked due to Kolor Autopano Giga's (generous) trial restrictions.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7
Lens: 14-42mm kit Lens
Mic: Zoom h1 pocket recorder
Software: Kolor APG (trial), Cyberlink Powerdirector 14, Audacity

Part 3 of the videosphere saga is here! This time I used kolor autopano for the photosphere stitching. Due to the fact that I don't yet have a license for autopano the video is watermarked (sorry). However this is what I would call my first real success, the video quality is high and the content is (at least personally) fun.

It is a bit windy/rainy in the video, but when viewed through my cardboard it is quite like the real thing. In the future I might incorporate the onboard footage, unfortunately the quadcopter's camera really only looks passable in daylight.

I'm still working on a tutorial powerpoint for this process if anyone is interested: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1dsm8sCu7lOQLCq3dUn7NQ0Qjd2V9IT3ezOe37ztnFL8/edit?usp=sharing

+Ben Singley Here is the kind of quality you can expect if you use Kolor's autopano stitching software. Personally the built in processing of google's camera app just wasn't always sufficing.

Just got this email, so exited for delivery tomorrow! Anyone else buy into room-scale yet? I really have been enjoying my cardboard and going to wired and lower resolution is going to be an adjustment but the anticipation is killing me. Also I wonder if we can get a cardboard emulator working for the Vive/Rift?

Finally a solution for room scale cardboard. On a serious note this actually works relativity well for not slamming into things while in a cardboard experience. Also pictured is my (not patent pending) all in one solution for mobile VR.

If anyone is still interested in what you can accomplish as far as 360 video with just a phone, google camera app, and a small amount of video editing here is my second attempt at it (I like to call it a videosphere). Unfortunately my good tripod was loaned out at the time, so the tiny backup one was all I had. Because the tripod was sliding/flexing a ton the stitching is not great.

But with only a small amount of equipment (that you probably have most of already) and a bit of patience this is what you could expect:

Again sorry for the mediocre quality, stay/skip to the end for a video google put toghther autotmatically.

How fun! I assume the bucket was your capacitor? Yea that is what I thought. I have found that too and it pays to pull out the "pro" stuff just avoid the frustrations. In any case this gives some idea using my V.360 for more coverage. I also have some ideas in using two Ricoh Theta S's as soon as I can get my hands on two.
Thanks for sharing

Just published my first chrome extension, it removes "deadwood phrases" and replaces them with something less complex. Not sure what purposes it serves yet, but a cool experiment. Also thanks to "cloud to butt" for the code. (Feedback welcome)

While playing around with my new controller (F310), I had an idea for a new playstyle/gamemode/tutorial it's called:

Rocket League: The Hover Games

Tutorial 1: (In freeplay mode)
1. From the ground in either goal, make it to the other goal without touching the playing field.

2. Hover stationary (within the center circle) for X seconds.

3. Hover (shortways) across the field from one side wall to another.

4. Hover (longways)  across the field from above one goal to above the other.

5. Starting from side wall of one goal to the same side wall inside of the other goal.

6. Starting from side wall of one goal to the opposite side wall inside of the other goal.

7. Starting on the ground facing a goal drive into the back of the goal, hover inverted across the entire field, and land upside down in the ceiling of the other goal (traveling down the back to un-invert yourself)

Tutorial 2: Same as above but in online match

Tutorial 3: Same as above but in online match and score a goal and win the game

Tutorial 4: Same as above but in online match and score a goal and win the game and all of the above challenges in one match.

I'm still a bit new to this game but I have found the above (tutorial 1) to be a bit challenging but achievable.

What are your ideas for a Hover Games challenge? (all suggestions welcome)

Great place for a quick lunch, the food here is great and the staff make this a place i'll never forget. Taco tuesdays here are a great deal but if you go during lunch hours be prepared to wait a bit. Online orders have always been ready and correct when i've done them.

Can't find this location anywhere on the website, it is here though and the machine works correctly. Sometimes the movie selection here is a bit sparse/outdated.

Went just after they opened, service was very good. Food here was quite good but the flatbread is not something I'd recommended.

Great shopping center for unique items. Very pleasant people, none of which were pushy about making a sale. The "big" stores are same as always but I find value in the smaller things. The walls here are also covered in art installations, a nice reprieve from the normal retail experience.

Went through the drive through as a novelty, prices are quite high but not misrepresented. Service was bipolar, some staff members were a bit unwelcoming but others were great. Drive through process took a bit over 20 min for a pizza, slice, and wings.

Good selection of items, if a bit of a smaller store. Prices are good but be prepared for a moderate wait in line if it is busy.
