@Michael do you plan to release before end of year, a player compatible with Google+, as they release theyr APIs last September ?
I'm advising a few brand to equipe theyr team (with goPano) on Cultural Events they Sponsor, and I would really love them to be the first Brand to use/upload their panoramique video on their Goople+ Brand/product profile...
@Michael I have to disagree, as I said in my comment your app on the iPhone already does a wider screen than the flash player on your website, which I find more enjoyable to watch. Also it would be up to the poster. Give people the ability to select screen ratio on the videos that they post.
Is it possible for there to be a stand-alone viewer? We will be using the GoPano to develop some in-house projects that we will want to display to team members. As our work is proprietary, we cannot have our videos put online.
Additional thought - why not offer 'viewing guides' or 'traces' - live-recordable angles within the environment? In other words, the GoPano video is the world- but a person could create a unique take within (what to look for) in that environment. A viewer could ride-along with the the guide, to appreciate the GoPano environment from the guides perspective.
Guys - really great work. BUT - it seems super-obvious that because these videos are 'environments' that viewers can explore, as opposed to static presentations to be absorbed passively - you need a LOOP mode so that viewers can continue to engage with the video and not 'time-out'. In many cases (static physical environments) the stones / rocks / etc will stay the same - if the 'actors' - people walking around, birds, etc - move or skip when the video loops, not a problem.
Gerard: We're still experimenting a bit with display sizes. Making the view too wide gives a "tunnel vision" appearance which can be dizzying. This effect is less prominent when you have a narrow field of view like those other guys.
We're halfway through production and shipments for Kickstarters. Barring any (more) unforeseen circumstances, we expect all remaining shipments to go out by next week.
Me too. But still hopeful
Wow, I too pledged but received nothing.
This would be great news ... if I had received the two units that I pledged $100 for. Until then, I'll remain nervous that my $ is gone.
When will you be shipping? I'm still waiting to receive mine.
Also, when on the iPhone you can tilt the device to watch the video in landscape which looks much much better. Would it be possible to have the videos on the website in landscape as well? I noticed that the Kogeto Dot guys are doing widescreen landscape as well, looks better, well to me anyways.
Ok, first comment on the website, can't upload. It keeps getting stuck at 99%
