Twitter integration

Post by sparrow » Thu Sep 22, 2016 12:42 pm

Hi all

Does anyone have up to date info on embedded a Pano2VR 360 into Twitter?
At the moment I can create a video animation but wondered if there was a way to display a 360 just like Facebook 360 photos.

Cheers

Anyone ? :?

I know before Facebook oficially supported 360 photos, a few people had found ways to embed 360s. Wondered if there was a hack for twitter too.

Hi Sparrow,

Yes you can certainly display a Pano2VR 360˚ into a Twitter post. Here is an example from my Twitter account https://twitter.com/tonyredhead/status/ ... 3607616512

I've created a droplet, in 4.5.3, that creates all the required metatags and uses a modified .ggt file. If you are interested I can create a tutorial on my website http://tonyredhead.com/tipsandtutorials that takes you through it step-by-step.

cheers,

Tony

I'd much appreciate a tutorial for doing this.

Great tutorial Tony. The droplet zip isn't available, maybe the link is incorrect?

Would the workflow alter if the host was not using SSL, or just an address change (http vs https) ?

I just found this statement, "Use HTTPS for your iframe, stream and all assets within your meta tags." on this page https://dev.twitter.com/cards/types/pla ... _looks_for

If you don't have SSL enabled server I'd try it with http: and see what happens. Let me know how you get on.

Hi Tony
Thanks for taking time to create the tutorial. I tried it and it worked great in the validator. Just have to wait until they whitelist my domain.

Having uploaded a few 360s to Facebook, I think Twitters approach is vastly complicated and much too complicated for the average 360 client. With Facebook, we can just send client the equi image and FB handles all the heavy work.

I think a much larger thumbnail without the play button would also be better. IE a summary_large_image thumbnail is much bigger and would allow us to add our own play button etc.

Hopefully Twitter will follow Facebook's lead and simplify this stuff.

Thanks again for the tutorial though.
