Good to know: Fectar uses Equirectangular projection. If you are unsure if your 360 video is the correct format, please check this page about Equirectangular projection.
Your video is assigned to your Space. Now, you can change the content type to 360 Video. But, first, select the video spot and click on the white dropdown menu.
A dropdown menu opens. Here are multiple options that change the content type. Click on 360 Video to add the type.
Properties of a 360 Video
At the bottom of the Spot Properties tab, you will find the options concerning a 360 Video. There are two options to display the 360 Video as a Portal; this is the default. A portal is a door to a new world. The user walks through the door, entering a 360-degrees video. Check out the video below to see a Portal in action.
The second option is a 360-degree immersive Dome. You can Switch between the two by using the Use Portal Toggle.
When you use the default Use portal, we recommend filling in 100 in the Width and 200 in the Height. Then, when ready, Click the Orange Save Button to save the changes.
With a 360 Video, you can also customize the amount of the audio volume. The Default value is 1. This is maxed volume.
