Not sure if you can but it would be great if you could connect your gear 360 to your pc and use it as a camera or webcam and be even better if you could view the stream remotely through a browser or app so you could view the feed from a device outside of your home
Anyone know of anyway to do this or if this is something that may be planned for the future?
We're afraid this isn't possible. It is only possible to record to SD card or to a compatible phone. Through the PC it is possible to view the recordings through Action Director to edit it, so you can play on different formats.
Hope this helps :robothappy:
Thanks, I have been using action director to view and edit videos which is great, would be a great feature for the future then maybe, if you could view and stream your camera feed from anywhere to a mobile device via wifi or mobile networks
I have to really agree, that it needs to be pushed to get this 360 Camera to also be a PC Webcam with drivers so that you either select it as a Drive to download the files from the MicroSD (Which is current design). Or have the ability to make a USB connected Webcam to use in any app that will use the Windows Drivers of a camera.
I have recently got Gear 360 device. I was excited to get it. But there is BIG BUT. It is just a camcorder. Not even a webcam. That would be great if this device can be used at least as webcam.
+1 here. My work bought this for me as a webcam for design work with remote employees. I was a test as we need something for this purpose for employees across the country. This product would be fantastic but it appears i've finally found my answer - that this won't work. So a few thoughts:
1. I spent a lot of time trying to make this work as it wasn't clear what the PC piece was for. I think your website/instructions could be more clear on this point. Would have prevented a lot of lost time and frustration for me and my it dept.
2 - the use case for conference calls, design sessions and other meetings as well as a web cam would seem to be pretty compelling.... This would be perfect (especially if people could zoom in remotely with webex or some other phone app so employees needing to see whiteboard/sketching/post-it note maps, could control it themselves. Its so close!
