As part of the training program in our org we are using 360 degree videos and currently no Microsoft software has the ability to play 360 degree videos.

It would be great if Stream would include that ability.

in our case, we use 360 videos for our field service progress update.. our guys went down, and took videos and share it as part of their report. We view the site progress and update with the videos as evidence.

Thanks for adding the Use case scenario! That really helps.

I forgot to mention that we're in the business of engineering and construction. We build highways, bridges, skyscrapers, even property townships. We also have businesses doing facilities management, where we maintain what we've built. The 360 videos are very useful for us for progress update by the on-site inspection team. They just walk around, and captured everything in sight. hope that helps.

Is there any update on this suggestion/request?

Occasional Contributor

It's a great suggestion. I share my scenario. We are a school and we would love to be able to create 360� teaching content and be able to upload it in our same platform and not to go to another non-controlled space like youtube. We are talking about first grade kids for example.

We are looking at using 360� videos to give staff a virtual tour of our various site, offices and stations. I sincerely hope Stream supports this feature soon.

We are also a school looking for a 360 video solution, we are heavily invested in office 365 and at the moment we are forced to upload to youtube etc which is definitely not our preferred method in regards to privacy etc.

 

Thanks,

We are in the business of Architectural practice. We visit project sites and record the existing environment using tools like Samsung Gear 360. An ability to upload these videos into Stream and share them with other office staffs would be desirable. Currently, we upload them into Vimeo and share the link.

 

Also, it would be desirable where users can switch the video projection into different types. Something that Samsung does in their VR app on the phone where you can pick the projection type for watching various VR videos. YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook already have the features to play 360 videos available.

We're a travel business and this feature would be really useful for sharing our 360 content from destinations, hotels & experiences with our office based sales teams.

360 will be a game changer... lets not forget to beable to stream 360 that would be great too.

Totally agree, 360 video will become an effective tool for our company going forward. Hope we see it soon.....

This is very important for training.

As a new user on stream it is a MAJOR disappointment for us that 360 video is not supported, we are creating 360 asset video's in our company to explain people how a location works, training and more. We tried on Sharepoint and with many tricks, plug ins we managed to get it to work, but not usable for the average user.

 

Really, building a video platform like this without 360 support shows a lack of understanding what is happening in the world.

 

When can we have any information (roadmap) where we can see this happening ?

I concur with all these use cases. I am particularly in favour of immersive training. With Microsoft addressing VR natively in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and in partner Windows Mixed Reality devices, it follows that Microsoft Stream should support corporate controlled 360 video streaming. 

New Contributor

I agree, we are piloting the use of 360 Video for Technical Product overviews for a more immersive learning experience. Would be great to see hear some feedback if this will be on the Stream Roadmap anytime soon. For our organization this would be a critical factor in our current project for if we would commit to using stream or not.

Is the video player in Stream capable to play 360 interactive videos?

New Contributor

Hi Johny,

I support the need for 360 video in Stream.  Exploring the value of 360 vid at the moment for eLearning.  Its a great tool and would be great if our organisation could 'tap-into' this.  I now have to look to external platforms for support!

Contributor

I agree. Please support 360 video support. For livestreaming also, thanks.

Contributor
We would love to be able to use Stream to upload and share the 360 videos that are produced out on site visits. Currently we have to use YouTube and send private links about which is a shame as Stream is part of our suite of apps we could utilise instead

Hi,

 

We rely on 360 videos for our training needs and currently looking for alternatives to our current solution. So, this is definitely something we are eager for Stream to provide. Please let me know if this is on the roadmap and any timeline indications? 

 

Also is it Stream video on the "SharePoint Spaces" that will be or is the video webpart in Spaces a different one?

Our business starting to use VR/AR/MR more frequently even in the clothing design-phase. So the demand for supporting 360 upload/usage is high within our organisation. Could you give us some hints if this are on the drawing table or not?

What is a 360 degree video you might ask.  Well the simple answer is to see one to understand.  Here is one from Microsoft:  Microsoft 360 Video: Inside the Quietest Place On Earth 

For public facing 360 degree videos YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo are good choices, but for internal videos that must be kept private, our management team wants to know why aren't we using Stream?  The answer is Stream does not support 360 degree videos.  This has been a desire for some time on Stream for a number of people, but there is no indication that this feature will be coming so we have to choose other enterprise oriented providers such as Panopto, Momento360, and others to share videos securely. 

Although you can upload 360 videos to Stream today, they do not give you the 360 degree view as they do in the link above.  

If you see value in sharing 360 degree videos internally in your enterprise through Stream, please upvote this idea now!

360 video on stream (revisited).  I am just about to enter into a project with my organisation that will involve capturing 360 video content.  Spent a few minutes looking at the forum and I see no evidence of any development in this space? Our organisation is heavily invested in the range of Microsoft products, and its obvious from past forum posts that the community are engaged in 360 video, and are looking desperately for secure platforms, and one they can trust.  Can someone please confirm if Stream is a potential for this somewhere on their roadmap? It appears there's been no confirmation either way (not that I can see), excuse me if I am wrong, that Stream (will or will not) have any 360 video incorporation into its build. Greatly appreciate some feedback on this.  Thanks to the great community I am part of.

Thanks to those to continue to keep this alive. It would be very beneficial to those of us in fields that see work value to 360 video (ahem... and photos) - and need to keep them private and internal. I currently see no way to share video and photos of our construction projects that we wish to keep private and part of our Microsoft Office/SharePoint workflow. Google has been supporting this for some time, and still... nothing but crickets here. The Office 365 and SharePoint offerings continue to get better and better, and while I understand Microsoft can't leverage every technology we each want into their products, certain standards that reach the mainstream should be. I think we're there with 360 Video and Photos, and I hope Microsoft will help us keep such technologies internal as they've done with so much else.

Yes fully support your need for 360 video. We wish to use 360 for helping our staff improve their clinical and health practices and performance. I wasn't successful in uploading to SharePoint, and I don't want the content on youtube or vimeo, as we prefer a secure organizational space to share the content in. Stream would be the obvious tool, in fact any tool that is capable of streaming a video captured by a 360 camera would be great. I hope someone (up there) in Microsoft Land is checking in on us (down here) reality land. Thanks to those who share the passion.

Hi @christeanaa. 360 photo support is in development for OneDrive for Business.

Roadmap reference 49516. 

I expect once photo support is working in OneDrive, it paves the way to enabling support in SharePoint document libraries. However, I still think the best place for them is within Stream.

Our health and safety team is interested in capturing important incident details via 360 images and videos which give additional understanding and important context to others. For obvious reasons there are privacy and control needs and Stream would seem to be the best solution IF this feature were created and enabled.

We are currently exploring recording a lot of 360 video training scenarios in our company and we really need to be able to keep the videos in house, behind our firewall, and available to our global employees. Stream would be ideal for this if it supported 360 video. If it helps, some of the scenarios include: roleplay and coaching videos, product training videos, employee engagement, manufacturing explainer videos, and much more. We also have a customer facing team that is very interested in training our customers on our products using 360 video. We have purchased a GoPro Fusion to record, and edit the video with Adobe Premiere. Would appreciate this feature as soon as possible as we'd love to be able to roll out videos in Q4!

We are heavily pushing Stream as the enterprise video solution but our 360 video use case centers around safety inspections of various, large industrial equipment like chimney stacks and boilers. Wish we can make it happen in Stream.

is there any progress on this, it's a real need in industries like ours
