360 video with h.265 not visible

Post by JSchrader » Tue Jul 09, 2019 11:06 am

Currently I'm evaluating the possibilities to author tours with 360video in pano2vr.
on the positive side it works better than expected!
the downside is, when I use h.265 (which is mandatory for Oculus GO) I can see the tour in the go but on desktop the screen turns black as soon as the video runs. This seems to be a browser issue with Chrome and Firefox because in good old Internet Explorer I can see the videos :roll:

Is this a known issue, and is there a way to make 360 h.265 appear in other browsers?

Answer to myself: h.265 video does show in Microsoft Edge Browser on Win desktop.

Hi,
I have seen that it is working in Edge when hardware decoding is available.
But at the moment H.265 is not supported by most browsers so stay with H.264.
