Usage statistics : to facilitate product support, product development and improvement GoPro may collect certain information in an anonymous way about your use of the software. This can be disabled in General settings tab.
In Advanced tab, select Shared memory if you want to display the video preview you're working on in Autopano Video 3
From Autopano Video 3 RC3, you do not need to change that setting as GoPro VR Player is now automatically launched with the right parameter when clicking the icon
I case you manually changed that setting, in order to display 360 still panoramas or videos, you must disable Shared memory option or it will only display a black window with a warning message!
