@craig , I’m doing it the other way. I’m connecting the Z1 via http to my website to pull specific information/configuration set by specific user.Of course during communication I use encryption with 128bit keys, etc. So before pushing that button on Z1 to start streaming it connects automatically to my flow.tours website to pull the configuration data that was set by the owner of that Theta on my website directly. There is also an RTMP field that the user can manage and set. I do not want to hard wire to use only to my platform, but clearly quality and some other formats may not work in that case (like stitching in browser, when using HDR shooting mode for streaming).
Heating is still an issue… I did not respond yet to your last note you shared test results done by Ricoh with original wireless streaming plugin. But that plugin streams in pure quality and still it stopps working in about 30 minutes for me. I tried using 2.4g, 5g wifi, playing around with quality settings there, etc. but in a room temperature without AC, on an original camera without heatsinks,e tc. it stopps because of heating, it shuts down.
My plugin also cant work more than 25-30 minutes in same environment, but the quality is much better. I could make it run longer by decreasing quality, but it makes no sense at this point. With 180 degree mode I’m able to reduce bandwidth need and keep proper quality, but heating is also there too.
So if I understand correctly, when my plugin is finished it will still take about 1 month to make it available in Ricoh Theta Store?
“At least a month prior to when you want to promote it, either for testing or commercial use, we should schedule video meeting to discuss both functionality and promotion.”
This means we are already late. I would like to schedule a call with you then for next week as would like to promote testing in a month, around end of May preferable to start testing. Do you think this is feasible?
I will record a short video next few days to introduce to you first the workflow to setup streaming, and I would appreciate if could start a test period somewhere end of May. But let’s come back to that and meet next 1-2 weeks if possible.
