Any luck getting mobile VR browser with 360 video working

by cgm4967 » Tue Sep 01, 2015 12:31 am

I have uploaded three tours all with different video configurations and still am unable to get any of the videos to play with VR turned on. They all play fine on a laptop, PC, Mac but not in VR mode with a headset. I am not getting any crashes...just no playing. I have uploaded Main video file with ovg and webm alternative files and with different resolutions...1080, 1440, 4K....nothing seems to matter. Have tried adding 7 files total, 5 files total...nothing. I have used a iPhone 6 plus running iOS 8.4.1 with Dolphin, Chrome, and Safari...all latest versions. I have also tried running with a Google Nexus running 5.1.1 again using Dolphin and Chrome. Here are the URL's

http://www.1618multimedia.com/brookwoodwalk

http://www.1618multimedia.com/brookwoodwalk2

http://www.1618multimedia.com/brookwoodwalk3

In order to get to the video just look up at the circle to get to drone view and then look right to get to video.

Attached is my latest round of videos to upload in version three. I would love to get this working soon! Does anyone have it operational on their end and if so, how?

So, I have re-encoded the videos (again) as suggested with ffmpeg and uploaded a new tour....same issue....360 video in VR mode will not play. All I see is the first frame of the video with the play controls over the video. When I click on these, nothing starts. I would REALLY like to see a site where this has been implemented correctly. I have even tried one where I put the webm file in the Main slot thinking maybe it was too much for the program to handle in 1080 or 1440 resolution...no....still does not play.

As always, I am trying in multiple browsers on both ios and Android devices...iPhone 6 plus and Google Nexus with latest and greatest on both! :-) Firefox, Chrome, Dolphin, Safari mobile versions all up to date have been tried.

Please look up in the sky to catch the drone shot and then over to the right to get the 360 video.

I am able to get these working on Laptops and PC's, my problem with the 360 videos is with the VR plus headsets.

Yep seems that the ogv low res file is used on device.
Try to only use the webm file as low res file to see if it's better or edit the code as send in private message.

Hi Giech is it possible to see the content of the YOURTOUR_core_vr.xml file please ?
Do you have only one 360 video or more ?

Hi I've discover an issue into the player which can break the video playback into the VR mode if alternate files are used.
As soon as possible I'll post an answer on this issue.

Hey all,

I was able to take just an .mp4 and put in the Main slot and leave the alternatives blank and got the video to play. I am using Chrome mobile on an Android device. At least we are making progress!!!

www.1618multimedia.com/brookwoodwalk9

look up in the sky to catch the drone view and then over to the right to start the 360 video.

On iOS (iPhone 6 - iOS 8.4) the video starts as a Full Screen Video. No VR Mode. If I stop it, goes back to VR mode on a Static Frame of the video.

Is it possible to test a code edit for iOS video playback.
Open the YOURTOUR_core.xml and YOURTOUR_core_vr.xml files.
And find the use_as_videopano="false" attribute of the ptvideosceneplayer plugin.
Once find replace the use_as_videopano="false" attribute in each file by
Code: Select all
use_as_videopano="true"
use_as_videopano.no-panovideosupport.or.html5.and.ie.and.mobile="false"

Clear browser cache and try it on iOS device.
Is it better ?
