Sharing 360fly Videos

The 360fly.com network is currently out of service for uploading/sharing your 360fly videos. We do not currently have a date when this will be fixed, but you still have other options for sharing your 360fly video content.

 

The main platforms for sharing 360-degree interactive videos are Vimeo, Facebook, and YouTube. All three of these platforms are free and allow you to set the privacy for your video, if you do not want it available to the general public. If you have already have a Gmail account, you automatically have a YouTube account associated with your email, and don’t need to create anything new.

 

Please see below for instructions on sharing your video content to these social media platforms through a computer, a compatible iPhone/iPad, or a compatible Android smartphone.

 

Computer

If you are looking to share your video content from a computer, turn your camera on so that it has a solid blue LED light, and connect it to your computer’s USB port. The LED light will turn solid yellow (or greenish-yellow). If you are using a 360fly HD, you can click on the camera tab, select your 360fly HD model, then select “Import All.” If you are using a 360fly 4K camera, there are a few extra steps to importing your content, which are explained here.

 

Once your content is in the Videos tab, run your mouse over the thumbnail of the video you would like to share, then click “Convert” in the lower left corner.

This will export a social media formatted video file to your computer. You can then open your Internet browser, sign into your Vimeo, YouTube, or Facebook account, and upload your 360-degree content like any other video file. It may take up to two hours for the software on these social media platforms to fully process 360-degree videos, and they may not display in full resolution right away. Please be patient.

 

If you would like to change the appearance of your video’s bottom void or insert a custom graphic, please refer to this link.

 

If you are looking to edit your 360-degree video in third party editing software (such as Adobe Premiere or Final Cut), please refer to the workflow outlined here.

 

IPhone/iPad

You first want to import the 360fly videos stored on your camera to the 360fly app on your iPhone/iPad. For instructions on this process, please click here. Once you are done saving importing your video files, it is best to disconnect from your 360fly camera’s WiFi, or turn off your camera altogether.

 

From the “On My iPhone/iPad” section of the 360fly app, find the video you’d like to share, then click the share icon underneath the bottom right corner of the video thumbnail. You will see two rows of share options – select “Save Video” from the bottom row.

This will export a social media formatted version of your video to your iPhone camera roll. Once the video is exported, you can open the Vimeo app, the YouTube app, or the Facebook app, and upload your 360-degree content like any other video file. PLEASE KEEP THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT POINTS IN MIND:

*You need to wait for the video to finish exporting before you close the 360fly app.

*You CANNOT view this video from your camera roll, as the native iPhone/iPad video player is not coded to read/display interactive 360-degree video. Your iPhone/iPad will try to convert the video to a format it can understand and, in the process, corrupt the 360-degree data read by the social media platforms.

*All three of these social media platforms require that you upload 360-degree content through their dedicated apps on mobile devices. If you try to share them from your camera roll, or upload them from a mobile Internet browser (such as Safari), it could affect the 360-degree data read by the social media platforms.

*It may take up to two hours for the software on these social media platforms to fully process 360-degree videos, and they may not display in full resolution right away. Please be patient.

 

Android

You first want to import the 360fly videos stored on your camera to the 360fly app on your Android smartphone. For instructions on this process, please click here.

Once you can access the videos from the “On My Phone” section of the 360fly app, please follow these instructions to export a social media formatted version of your video to your Android gallery. Once the video is exported, you can open the Vimeo app, the YouTube app, or the Facebook app, and upload your 360-degree content like any other video file.

If you would like to change the appearance of your video’s bottom void or insert a custom graphic, please refer to this link.

If your Android smartphone is compatible with Daydream VR, you will be able to preview the exported video from your Android gallery before uploading it to social media. To find out if your Android smartphone has Daydream VR, contact the company who makes your smartphone.
