On this page we'll see how to encode a 360 degree video to be displayed while its download is being completed.
The video file we created at the previous step is of .AVI format. This means to be watched by a visitor at a page we may embed it, the visitor will need to wait until the entire file is downloaded from the server where it is hosted to the user computer, risking this way the user may abandon the waiting before it is completed. To make the movie partially visible to users while the rest of the file continues downloading we need to encode it as an .FLV file format. For the converson we'll use . To get started we'll click on Add to load the video file we created at the previous step :
Using the dialog window that opens we can browse to the location of our movie and confirm the selection by clicking on Open :
Then in the program's main window we can see a new line with details of the selected video :
Clicking on Browse we'll go to the location we want to asign to the encoded file we shall create :
Also this time a new window pops up where a dialog lets us locate the choosen destination folder before confirming our desition by clicking on OK :
Now we can see the selected location in Kigo Video Converter's main window :
Displaying the Output Format menu we'll select Flash Video Movie - FLV :
In this case we don't need to make any other changes since the program's default settings turn out to be adequated to our needs. Otherwise, we could have defined for our video other properties such as dimensions, bit rate, frame rate, image quality, sound quality. Once all values are defined for these options, by clicking on Convert we'll trigger the new file creation process :
As the new file is created, two indicators show us the process, one of them on the status column, the other one at the footer of the window :
When the task is completed, at the location set we find a new folder named FLV :
Into this folder we find our .FLV format file :
You can download this video_compilado.flv (11 Mb) file.
This file can already be published to the Internet and be visible while in the background the download of it continues. However we intend to create an interactive 360 degree video, so we still need to combine the new movie with other elements to achieve this effect.
