Using the Spatial Media Metadata Injector
The Spatial Media Metadata Injector adds metadata to a video file indicating that the file contains 360 video. Use the metadata injector to prepare 360 videos for upload to YouTube.
Download the Spatial Media Metadata Injector from the Google Spatial Media GitHub page.
Note: The Spatial Media Metadata Injector is available for Windows (64-bit only) and OS X.
Launch the metadata injector, and click Open to open your 360 video.
If you used a 3D-360 camera such as the GoPro Odyssey or Yi HALO, check the "My video is stereoscopic 3D" checkbox.
Note: If you used a monoscopic camera (e.g. Kodak PIXPRO SP360), leave the stereoscopic 3D box unchecked.
If your video contains spatial audio, check the "My video has spatial audio" checkbox.
Click Inject metadata to save a copy of your video with metadata injected.
You can now upload the injected video to YouTube.
Note: When uploading 360 video to YouTube, there may be an additional delay after initial processing is complete before the video appears as a 360 video. There may be a further delay before spatial audio is available.
