Ricoh Theta S allow USB livestream video, you have to only install UVC Blender App. Anyone try it?

Yes, tested, and works nicely, albeit only at reduces resolution (720p).

It would be even nicer if it was capable of operating at full 1080p resolution, as when the camera is recording on its internal memory.

This camere has excellent optics and sensors (see the photos for a proof of this), it is really a pity to destroy such an high image quality due to excessive resolution loss caused by limits in bandwidth and/or in storage size.

The USB streaming feature would help to overcome the problem given by the size of internal memory, which is too small for recording long videos.

45 minutes at full resolution is really too short, most events like concerts, sports, entertainment last at est 1.5 or 2.0 hours...

The other problem with the USB realtime equirectangular video is that the unwrapping driver causes significant latency, approximately 1.5s, which is really too much for any serious realtime  application, such as telepresence, videoconference, etc...

 

If just Ricoh releases a "pro" version equipped with at least 32Gb of flash memory (or a microSD card slot), and perhaps a full-HD already-unwrapped streaming capability, this camera would really be a great success!

There is higher resolution if connected by HDMI. So the limitation appears to be usb bandwidth, not the camera.
