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.

- 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.
Time Lapse Trip from Richmond VA to Tampa FL from Tom Woodward on Vimeo. This is my first attempt with the GoPro. I think it’s set to one shot every 30 seconds. You can see me fiddling with the settings a few different times if you’re masochistic enough to watch it through. The battery ran out early in the trip and resulted in me using it without the stand. That helps explain the repeated drifting as the USB cordHow strange to be able to easily charge USB devices in the car and even stranger to have the need to do so. pulls it slowly towards the driver’s side. It is interesting to see a 12.5 hr trip condensed down to 4 minutes or so. I may do it on the way back but pointed mostly towards the sky or maybe at the kids. Knowing where the stops were makes me wonder if something similar would make for a interesting take on Dan Meyer’s original graphing stories. On the other end of the time lapse spectrum is this attempt to condense one my attempts to fix a photo from the reddit pic request group. This one is kind of amusing to me in that you can see me googling some stuff for a sick child in the middle and finishing up […]

Instead of the name of the printer it showed the MAC address so it seemed the connection was good. I tried it on a PC running Windows 8 and on my Mac running 10.9. I power cycled the printer and the computers. I tried to connect via IP address but nothing worked. My next instinct was to try an older version of the MakerBot Desktop software. Incredibly, it seems that MakerBot doesn’t keep older versions of this software on their site.I still can’t believe this is true. In the end I had to do a number of Google searches that removed makerbot.com from the search results. I went all the way back to the 3.1 version (get it here) and the connection worked perfectly. From there I updated the firmware. I then tried running 3.7 again but no dice. I uninstalled […]
