Cristóbal Braun Mesples Im using the 360 app on a Huawei p8 without any problems
Luca Jack Bevinetto Thank you...i try
Mark Rodenburg If that's not working you can try this https://goo.gl/NVd62E
Mark Rodenburg Let Google Street view connect it for you. Turn on the camera, open the app en let it connect to the device. If you make a wifi connection before the app is open it disconnects an try to connect again I think that is the problem.
Luca Jack Bevinetto But when I connect cam wi-fi, all ok, the G symbol is on display and the S3 is connected. When (in street wiew app) i go on connect spherical cam the wi-fi disconnect the cam. I try many times bat same. Is possible that work only on android 5 phones?

DONT TRY THIS AT HOME - this is how i need to describe my experience with my Gear360 at a concert ... Samsung current promote the cam by a filming a concert in a low light veneu. What a hoax. Because this is what you get: (PS: Maybe you might turn of your speakers. Its Death Metal and the sound comes directly from the cam - at least this suprised me, because for that the sound is better than expected :D )

David Hall You have to keep the ISO level about 800 and then crank up the light setting. I don't have a good example uploaded but from playing around with it, anything above 800 ISO has horrible noise but lower ISO means less light captured.
Ralfonso Kamin dont know why your video looks so bad...my "low light" experience looks like this https://youtu.be/hONSFGrqjBI of course not as brilliant as in the ad, but better than expected for this lillte cam ;-)

FYI -- here's a link to version 1.0.0.2005 of Action Director which was released last month. It includes better stitching than the previous version. Look back to early Sept posts in this group for discussion on the matter and comparisons. The product download link is near the bottom of the page linked here:

Vivian Van Zyl I had to download, uninstall and reinstall. Did not do update for me.
Daniel Fishelson Auto update or do we have to do something?
Vivian Van Zyl Remember to have also your "key" handy.

It appears FB has fixed the issue regarding 360 pics posting correctly. I'm on version 98.0.0.18.70

I did this small experiment by taking 2 pictures at the same location using 2 different methods. [ Image 1 ] was taken with the button and stitched via ActionDirector. [ Image 2 ] was taken with Google Street View and downloaded. I have the specs of each pic in the images and they both look pretty much the same to me after I processed them in Corel Paint. Can anyone see a difference in the images?

Vivian Van Zyl I installed the 2005 version and the output file in now slightly bigger (2.7 MB) and seems to look better.
Jamal Jamie Green Interesting test. Definitely a case where I want to chk out the flat file outside of 360 mode so I don't get dizzy!
Jamal Jamie Green Which version of Action Director? Also, you say you have no EXIF data after stitching in AD? That is definitely not the case for me.
Vivian Van Zyl Also, when I download the file to ActionDirector it is a 11.2 MB file, but after stitching it turns into a 2.6 MB file. Any idea why?
Pablo Sáenz ActionDirector looks better to me.

Mario Alejandro Gilio Bastante pedorra la producción. Pero igual admiro el esfuerzo de realizar contenido 360.
Marco Kolk Nice done
Saurabh Ranjan Well done mate. The washed out CC looks good for the genre. Did you use the GoPro setup?

Jonny Sparrow Lets NOT start calling it 'The Hand Grenade'

What's the best way to upload 360 video so you can watch it on the Gear VR? I have a few videos that are short enough to upload directly to Facebook, but some of them are pretty big files

Riku Williams Thank you got all of your input, I'm going to get a game pad today, I'm gonna go with a more Playstation look, I really wanted this one to work because using both hands kinda takes away.
Nicholai Kristensen The controller works. :) i have one my self. But after getting annoyed of it, cause i had to learn the buttons, i bought a normal bluetooth gaming controller, much better, and yes. My s6 edge + overheats after 30 - 50 minutes :-/
Jonny Sparrow I used mine a lot in the sun and now I look like a Panda, please help
Matthew Orlowski How many? I've found one - OVERHEATING :(
Patricio Munoz That's basically a Bluetooth controller, there is no gyroscope in there, so just in case you're expecting it to work in that capacity, it won't. I have the same one, used it like once or twice. There are some games that work with the input from the ...

Jamal Jamie Green The new version of Fb app broke 360 uploads via the Gear360 app (see earlier posts.) Reverting to older version of the Fb app fixes it (or just bypass the app via desktop.)

I think I found a work around now that Facebook is giving people trouble...use Flickr

Valentyn Semak InPatium.com allows you to publish 360 photos, and when share at Facebook it makes it normal view, no distortion, means no problem with Facebook, while they update their servers.
Jonny Sparrow Or just use google pictures
Eduards Lakis Except that Flickr distorts nadir & zenith
