Just got the new 2017 model from Korea. So far, it's very cool! BUT, if there's an 'active' scene along the stitching lines of the two lenses, the entire video seems to..pulse or jump up and down. It's very distracting. I've turned off all hard...

You trying to LiveStream via Facebook? Or...? Don't think it can be done on an iPhone at the moment. Only Android. It's controlled through the Gear 360 App on your phone, and the Action Director software on a computer.I'm going to test...

When I've had problems, I've restarted the camera, started, held the MENU until I see 'Connect IOS,' then gone on an iPhone into the WiFi list and connected. Sometimes, if too much time elapses between pressing that menu button to connect and g...

Can you watch footage recorded with Samsung Gear 360 on any VR headset, or must it be the Samsung Gear VR?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Ping.  You can use any VR headset, but it works best on Samsung Gear VR. 

 

Some benefits of the Gear VR for Gear 360:

On the Gear 360 Manager app, there is a button to "View on VR" which makes it convenient to see photos and videos on Gear VR.

On the Gear VR, the audio of the Gear 360 is 360 degrees (changes based on where you're facing).

On the Gear VR, photos and videos are much more immersive compared to Cardboard.

 

However, it is not necessary to get the Gear VR.  It is possible to see the Gear 360's photos or videos on any VR headset.  You just need to upload it to a site that supports Google Cardboard (or your preferred VR headset such as HTC Vive).

 

Best regards,

Mic
