Ricoh Theta to YouTube 360 on a Mac
The easiest path for me to get Theta video on YouTube using a Mac ended up being . . .
- Change file from m4v to mov – just rename the file and confirm.
- Open the renamed video file with the Spatial Media Metadata Injector program
- Save it
- Upload to YouTube and wait a bit as it’ll take a while after upload for it to become 360 interactive but it does get there.
We recently assigned a few custom domains to rampages. That ended up causing two complications. The first was that some people were using https associated URLs previously (news to me). The always impressive Tim Owens (reclaim hosting support cannot be complimented enough) took care of that for me. @twoodwar Merry Christmas 🙂 #vcualtlab pic.twitter.com/fpT7AQjt2I — Tim Owens (@timmmmyboy) June 16, 2016 The second was the need to redirect some file levelI’m not sure that’s the right terminology URLs to some new subdomains. I plain English, I needed https://uc.vcu.edu/focused-inquiry/ to go to http://focusedinquiry.vcu.edu. In any case, Tim gave me some tips and I sallied forth to do the redirects.I was initially confused about whether I was doing this in htaccess or not. Some of our sites are still using Apache and htaccess. Rampages is not. I was also unclear previously about whether htaccess had any connection to NGINX or not. It does not. 🙂 Put this in my public failure CV. This was my first time doing anything in NGINX so it was a learning experience. I document the steps here in the hope that it’ll be useful to someone else. Keep in mind I’ve only done this on my server so I’m assuming it’s fairly broadly applicable but I can’t be sure of that. I also attempted to either explain […]
Photoshop decided it was smarter than me and would override my decisions about exporting a PNG layer with transparencies. It’d clip it and mess up my careful alignment. You can see someone else suffering from this on the Adobe forums. This could not stand. If you don’t want to see the setup for the issue and just want the answer . . . take the paint brush set the opacity to 0 and make a slash across the top prior to export.
Like the music post a while back, I’m not going to attempt to tie this to education in any way. I’ll start this off with a caveat similar to my posts on programming . . . I’m just a guy trying to do stuff. Almost all of it is on the very edge of, perhaps a bit beyond, my competency levels. It is not unlikely that I will either say something that’s a bad idea or document something poorly. You have been warned. To set the stage, I have four kids. We have three bedrooms so the youngest two share a room. It’s not a huge room so bunk beds have been a topic of conversation for a while. I decided I’d talked enough over Winter Break and decided to make them. I have little woodworking experience. To the point that I’m not even sure if people call this woodworking. Carpentry maybe? I’m probably doing something like calling heating up pre-made cookie dough baking . . . Full disclosure, I have a table sawI bent the metal legs and had to remove them. This speaks volumes about my experience level. and a circular saw. I put in hardwood floors in our first house. I used floor glue instead of nails.Glue was a terrible, terrible mistake. I built a gate for […]
