Generate Alternative output for Video

Post by HFlouch » Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:47 pm

I'm following the instructions to pin a video and I think I've installed ffmpeg. However when I come to generating an alternative file, I'm stuck. I've looked at I can't see any gear icon. I'm looking in the panel shown in the ss attached below

(PS: Your instructions for installing on a mac seem to go to a dead link at Looking for an alternative on the web, I ended up having to install Homebrew and then installing ffmpeg via terminal. Problem with that was I can't find the files on my system anywhere to point pano2VR to - although terminal says they're in usr/bin. So I installed Hopki's file at viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12507&p=53176&hilit ... mac#p53176 - hope that will be suffciient)

Download FFmpeg here:

Then you need to set the ffmpeg executable location in Pano2VR's settings, only then you will get the gear icons to generate alternative files...

Pano2vr Settings is just keying in the path to where the ffmpeg.exe is located on your local drive.
