Seagulls

A bit of fun watching seagulls at Point Holmes

I shot this 360° still image with a 360° camera, and then used the camera software to convert the image into a jpeg file that can be displayed on Facebook or Flickr. It’s quicker to upload the image to Facebook, but a huge pain to embed it on a WordPress or Drupal blog – Flickr takes longer to process the file as an interactive VR image, but makes it really easy to embed it.

It’s pretty much the same story with the 360° video of the same scene with my friends the seagulls – use the camera software to convert it from a native .mov format into a web friendly .mp4 that can be displayed on Facebook or Youtube.  As with the still image, it’s much quicker to upload the image to Facebook, but a huge pain to embed it whereas Youtube makes it really easy to embed it.
