In March 2015, YouTube launched support for publishing and viewing 360-degree videos, with playback on its website and its Android mobile apps. Parent company Google also announced that it would collaborate with camera manufacturers to make it easier for creators to upload 360-degree content recorded with their products to YouTube.[13] However, in 2017, Google and YouTube began to promote an alternative stereoscopic video format known as VR180, which is limited to a 180-degree field of view, but is promoted as being more accessible to produce than 360-degree video, and allowing more depth to be maintained by not subjecting the video to equirectangular projection [8][16]

It seems that everybody these days want to lock you in by keeping your stuff hosted elsewhere and charge you a monthly fee. Not us. Whether you download our free version or go PRO, you get a piece of software and full control of where and how to host your published work. Cheap and reliable hosting is readily available from the likes of Amazon and Rackspace.

Video editing software like Pinnacle Studio Ultimate make it easy to edit your 360 videos in an editing environment you may already be familiar with. Your camera does the work to capture the footage from every possible angle, but in a video editing software, you can refine your footage to tell the story you want to show. Add your footage to the timeline and edit! There are a few additional controls specific for 360 editing but if you are just looking to trim or enhance color, the timeline is all you need!
There are several other apps that can do similar things, but the Collect apps interface is perfect for mobile use and makes it really easy to edit your videos. Once you’ve finished editing you can preview your new videos then either save them to your device or share them. I use the collect App when I’ve shot a few short 360 videos in the same location and want to merge them into an easy to watch longer video, the controls and interface allow me to do so in just a few minutes.

Google Cardboard, which is typically distributed in the form of do-it-yourself kits consisting of low-cost materials and components,[19] has been credited with helping virtual reality become more readily available to the general public, and helping boost the adoption of 360-degree video by publishers, such as mainstream journalists and media brands.[20]
