I have Gear 360 2017. On Samsung site it says download Gear 360 Action Director. I did this and installed on my PC.
But when I run it asks for registration code. On videos on Youtube it says there is the code in the box which the Gear 360 came in. But in mine ....nothing. Does the 2017 model not have this code? If not can someone suggest an editing program for gear 360 files....preferably FREE
Hey @Dennis4. You don't need an activation key, you just need to ensure you've download the correct version of Action Director and connect it to the PC when requested during the set up process.
You can download the software here. Hope this helps. :smileyvery-happy:
This response is for IOS users and the link does not take you to Action Director. I have both the 2017 and the 2016 model and Action Director will not stitch 2017.
None of you are doing anything wrong. The gear 360 application takes your serial and checks it with samsung, Or rather it tries. If you don't like or get technical jargon feel free to skip to the summary - in short you're doing nothing wrong and it's all samsungs fault.
Gear 360 sends out the following request to samsung when you enter a serial - The text "SERIAL" is a place holder for my or your actual serial.
POST /keydownload/c2?device_num=SERIAL HTTP/1.1 User-Agent: ActionDirector Host: www.samsungimaging.com Content-Length: 0 Pragma: no-cache Connection: close
This request is sent to www.samsungimaging.com. If you try to visit it you will find that the domain does exist but your browser dows not display anything. Looking at the whois information that was provided when the domain was bought, It was registered by "Samsung Electronics CO., Ltd" on 2008-11-27T23:43:47Z. The domain registration was last updated on 2017-10-30T04:43:31Z. That domain is due to expire on 2018-11-27T23:43:47Z.
This means the domain was bought in November 2008 and Samsung actively maintained their ownership of the domain again in October 2017. So, Why isn't it working???
Well the request that is generated by the gear360 does not recieve any kind of response where as a request sent to the same resource (samsungimaging.com/keydownload/c2) from a web browser does recieve a request.
Unfortunately the response I recieve back from the samsung key server lets me know that the application that they SHOULD be running to give people their keys, Does not exist. As shown in the screen shots below which shows the failed request made by the app at the top and the successful one made by a web browser to the same resource.
This is due to there being no DNS record on samsungs authoritative nameserver for the host that the app was told to look for. The app tries to request from www.samsungimaging.com and there is only a record for samsungimaging.com. The request made by the app can be seen to generate a response when the host is altered to reflect this.
Now if this were the only problem I give everyone a fix for this, however, There have been more failings on samsungs side. As I mentioned before the resource "samsungimaging.com/keydownload/c2" does not exist on samsungs server. It was responsible for verifying users serial numbers.
In summary there have been two failings here. One by CyberLink in having the app call a nonexistant domain and not testing the user verification functionality, And secondly by Samsung for removing the capability of that server to verify users.
In order to fix this;
Samsung have a responsability to their consumers to provide a means to allow their product to function without a samsung phone. No where on the packaging is there a stipulation that a samsung galaxy is required in order to use the camera. I would ask that samsung provide a means for customers to be able to use the CyberLink Action Director software as soon as possible to prevent possible reputaional damage that may arise from the disclosure of this information. I expect a reply within 2 days, Thankyou.
Hola tengo el mismo problema, genera error en el cosido de las imagenes, dice que no tengo navegador. uso el software que ofrece la pagina web de samsung, he enviado correo a cyberlink y no recibo repuesta, requiero de la ayuda de algun de ustees, o con que otro software podemos hacer el cosido de imagenes o videos.
Tengo Gear 360 2017. En el sitio de Samsung dice descargar Gear 360 Action Director. intente hacerlo qero no me da el enlace. Necesito el Action Director Gear 360 pra PC para trabjr los videos. Gracia
Has this issue been solved ? I am getting the same problem.
I am also able to connect to my iphone 6s, however, the software doesn't recognize it (Samsung Gear 360 App) software.
Any ideas ?
So does anyone have a solution? I cant get the freaking thing to work. My app on the phone is horrible too. Every time I click on the gallery it force closes. Just so anyone from samsung needs to know i have a samsung phone S20 and I have a PC using windows for the app. Major issue if I cant actually use the app or software to view edit or share my videos and good luck trying to watch a 360 video in 2 fish eye circles instead of in 360.
