Hi guys, I am working in the skin editor, trying to avoid using youtube to play 360-degree videos in my tour so I tried using the file and url options in the video source properties and they both output flat videos. Am I missing something or is the video element not built to play 360 video?

The video element plays normal video, when playing YouTube videos, YouTube is using its player so can show 360 video.
If you want to play local 360 videos in a popup, then build a separate Pano2VR project to play the 360 video, then add the output to assets of your tour project then use a text box to open it as a popup.

The same way you would use Pano2VR to build a gallery with in a tour as seen here: viewtopic.php?p=65532#p65532
