You can apply the video to a sphere with normals pointing inwards. Here's an example:

import viz
import vizshape

video = viz.addVideo('sphericalVideo.mp4')
sphere = vizshape.addSphere(flipFaces=True)
#Play and loop the video 

#Make sure sphere appears at infinite distance
#This allows other objects to be rendered in front

#Keep sphere centered around main view,sphere,mask=viz.LINK_POS)

#Setup a panorama camera navigation
import vizcam

360 video not playing


I tried to get a 360 video to play using the script provided, but all I see is a grey background. Are there some potential things I could take into consideration?

Thank you!

You may not have global codecs for the video type you are playing. Some applications like Windows Media Player have built-in codecs while Vizard relies on global codecs.
