Live Stream 360 Video From Mobile Phone with CameraFi and RICOH THETA S

There’s been a lot of interest in using the RICOH THETA to stream 360 video to both YouTube and Periscope. Although Periscope is in beta, it’s easy to get it set up with the THETA. I documented the process of streaming to Periscope from the THETA using OBS on a PC. Other companies like Everywoah are using mobile apps to stream the THETA directly from phones with no desktop computer required.

CameraFi recently wrote an article on using their application to stream the THETA from a mobile phone. This article focuses on YouTube, but it may be possible to stream it to Periscope as well. If you get it working, share your experiences below.

Streaming the THETA from mobile phones is an exciting new opportunity to share stories and events.
