So for this to work on pc I need to install a mobile app? It's not pretty clear on that so it doesn't work for me at the moment.

Hi mate, no on PC will work fine as is. Just more immersive with other means.

To use it on PC you just need to view the video using any standard brower like Chrome or Firefox. You can move around the video by clicking on the video screen and directions the camera with your mouse.

For PC you can view the video directly on Facebook: https://www.facebook...27989260570047/ or on Youtube: https://www.youtube....h?v=hvzukx71ZS8

 

Of course, the experience will be most immersive if you use a VR friendly cardboard and your mobile device, and that is what the article refers. Albeit works nicely on PC as well! :)

See that is the thing, I get the fisheye footage stretched to regular 1080p or something, when I click to to move around it just pauses the video like any other Youtube video.

Then again, I am watching on a Linux workstation (still on Firefox though), that might be the issue.

And again no information about the weekend special in time before it starts...

 

Ad to the video - it was of a low quality, so it would be better to have just a voiceover, or best - navigate just inside the tank, without people

Great use of this technology guys, thanks. Good to be able to look at any detail that took your eye, Sure it wasn't super high definition, but frankly you're expecting too much _Sig_. Just don't watch it on a big screen and problem solved.

 

Google Earth eat your heart out!

Hm, that is odd. I will run it with our guys in the studio, and see if they have an advice for Linux. Albeit FF on Linux should work just fine.
