MykonBlu, thanks for posting that link. I'm just getting started working with Unity and RICOH THETA. This looks super helpful.

I added the link to the Unity w/Blender article on the Horrible Pain site to a nascent document here:
I've never used Unity before.
Is there a way to connect the THETA S to Unity with an USB cable and get it to display a video inside Unity with no modification?

In the video below, the person looks like he is using Unity Personal 64 bit edition to stream a RICOH THETA S connected to his laptop with a USB cable. He also stitched the video together. It looks like the scene is the THETA S live streaming output in equirectangular format. Portions of the video show the live streaming output with the edges matching reasonably well, though still not perfect.

I have some additional information on this in Japanese that I will be going through. However, if someone knows what he did, and can explain in English, it would be helpful.

I've installed Unity on a Windows machine for the first time. I can't figure out how to get the input to be the RICOH THETA S. People are using it as seen in the picture below.

I have starting reading about Unity WebCamTexture

The WebCamTexture.devices looks particularly interesting.

This article and this one look promising.
