Support for YouTube 360 Videos; Full Help Screen

YouTube 360 Videos are now fully supported by MPEmbed Premium. Simply add them to the highlight reel as you would a normal YouTube Video. The difference is that you will be able to control panning, while standard videos have their controls disabled and replaced by MPEmbed to suppress display of related videos .

In addition to 360 Video support, the YouTube player will now inherit the language settings from MPEmbed.

Add YouTube 360 Video to the Highlight Reel

YouTube 360 Videos are now fully supported in your highlight reel. While partial support has existed, now you'll be able to interact with the 360 Video as expected.MPEmbed detects whether a video is a standard or a 360 Video in order to allow controls. When a video is standard, pausing will show related videos, which looks quite unprofessional within a Matterport Space. MPEmbed bypasses this by locking down the 'pause' and 'end video' sequence via the YouTube API.Additionally, MPEmbed syncs language support across to the YouTube integration — keeps it consistent when you right click in 360 mode for options 🙂

Finally, for those of you who missed the additional ‘More Help’ section of the ‘Help Screen’, this has been restored – along with mode specific help screens for Dollhouse, Walkthrough, Floorplan and 360 Views modes. Did you even know that the help screen changes during these modes? I didn’t before tonight!
