Using the gear 360 as a pc camera


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?




Thanks for your reply, hadn't heard of OBS but did a google search and is it OBS studio, how does this work then as I think when you connect your gear 360 to your pc, it disables your camera, I've got the 1st gen gear 360 by the way

I"m crushed this doesn't work, I thought I was just being dumb.

The 'live' feature only works on youtube if you have 1000 followers, so being able to use it on a desktop to be able to do livestreams on YouTube would be really nice.

I read the suggestion for conference calling as well, I think one in the middle of the room for a remote person to be able to look around the room while the meeting was happening would be bloody brilliant.


You have to update this software, it's such a compelling use case.
