360-Degree Video Support Coming to YouTube ‘Soon’
Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
YouTube supports a whole host of video formats, from Standard Definition, to 720p, 1080p, 3D and now of course 4k. But Google’s ever popular video streaming website doesn’t want to stop there – 360-degree video is coming soon.
YouTube says that they are “working to support 360-degree videos in the coming weeks.” 360 videos have started appearing all over the Internet, thanks to products like the full HD Giroptic 360cam being made available to consumers. YouTube however has seemingly lagged behind in offering support for this new technology, but that will be a thing of the past very soon.
That camera in particular is of note, as they say their camera will be one of the first to be supported by YouTube, no doubt helping the popularity of the product grow. The manufacturer hopes that its camera will be utilised in many of the ways the popular GoPro cameras have, producing a ton of viral videos.
