YouTube Still Not Recognizing 360

Recommended Posts

I'll find the answer, but I'm a bit stuck as of now. Perhaps someone can shorten the frustration window.

 

If I open a raw file in the Nikon app (Keymission Utility) the file can be swung around in the viewer and of course edited. 

 

However as an established YouTuber I have an intro bumper, title cards, commentary audio tracks, PIP and graphics to add along with an outtro bumper.  

 

I've used PowerDirector for years. I upgraded to 15 which allows for 360 editing specifically.  

 

But final files are not recognized on YT. I've rendered very short clips to test privately Nothing is working as a 360 should. It merely displays the full file with the rear camera recording cut in half at each side. 

 

I've followed YouTubes instructions and downloaded the Spatial Media Metadata Injector. I open the file, check only the box for 360 as YouTube specifically instructs. Upon uploading, still a flat video cut at the sides. 

 

I've attempted to render just a trimmed file from Nikon's Keymission Utility as well. I've even opened that file and attempted the metadata injection. Nothing.  I've read just about every instructional I can find from all parties and nothing. 

 

What am I missing? Anyone been through this? Help?

I'm replying to my own post for other users.

 

In short, I did not wait LONG ENOUGH for the video to process on YouTube.

 

While the first alert that the video is processed and may be viewed, that is incorrect. It first allows you to view the video as a flat file but after a period of time (in my case 15 minutes) the file did properly display allowing me to use my mouse or finger on a touch pad to swing the video around.
