More information on the Community Theta Guide: THETA V Long Video Plug-in: Recording beyond 25 minutes
Save videos longer than 25 minutes. Uses standard H.264 compression and standard video bitrate. This is an alternative plug-in for people that have problems with the Long Video High Compression Plug-in that uses next-generation compression and non-standard bitrate. For people having problems with Long Video High Compression, this plug-in should work. It is only useful if you need to take a single video that is over 25 minutes and under 45 minutes. The plug-in supports single-channel audio. Spatial audio does not work. Metadata is stripped out. You may need to inject metadata using a separate tool. The plug-in does not save camera orientation data to the video.
If you are compiling from source, follow these steps for installation:
Spatial Media Metadata Injector
You may need to inject the metadata into the video file with Spatial Media Metadata Injector.
1. Install the binary file with the link above. Pre-built applications are available for Mac and Windows.
2. Open the file.
3. Save the file with metadata injected with a new filename. Use the new video file with injected metadata in your applications and on YouTube/Facebook.
The 4k-long-video plug-in uses HEVC compression and lower bitrate encoding. It can save longer videos and the file size will be smaller. However, you may have problems dealing with HEVC videos with some applications.
