Use Theta Z1 livestream as video input to local browser

Hi all,

I used to display the Ricoh Theta Z1 live stream locally in a browser using getUserMedia, in Google Chrome and on Windows 10 64bit. However, recently, this does not work anymore: I get a “camera could not load” error in my web console. A work-around I found now that works is to use OBS to get the camera input, then start a virtual camera, and select the OBS virtual camera as the camera input stream in the browser. However, this adds a undesired delay of around 3s.

What could I do to get the original setup to work again, i.e. select the theta directly in the browser?
I have downloaded the driver

and use the following code to get the livestream:

const constraints = {
audio: false,
video: {
width: {min: 620, ideal: 3840, max: 7000},
height: {min: 480, ideal: 1920, max: 3840}

.then(stream => {
document.getElementById(“myVideo”).srcObject = stream;
console.log(“Got local user video”);
.catch(err => {
console.log('navigator.getUserMedia error: ', err)

All help would be appreciated!

Best regards,

Might be unrelated, but people have tried an older driver to get it to work with Unity.

Thank you so much, that worked! In my case only needed to set the value for the entry of RICOH THETA Z1 4K, the other one was already there.
