YouTube working on live 360-degree broadcasts

MysteryGuitarMan recently released a 360-degree video.

“Bringing live 360-degree video to users, however, would mean ingesting feeds from all sorts of cameras. And that could prove a daunting task without prior knowledge of each camera’s specs and idiosyncrasies — or the ability to identify them on the fly.”

Just recently, we reported on the news that MysteryGuitarMan has released a 360-degree game on YouTube, teaming up with Field Day to produce a unique interactive experience. The game invites viewers to track the movements of one of three balls as they fly around the camera thanks to roller-skaters and basketball athletes.

Meanwhile, YouTube has shared an inside look at England’s Buckingham Palace with a 360-degree video tour experience as part of a new Google Expeditions app that offers virtual adventures for school children.
