If you would've used the search function of the forum, you'd know that:

  • there will be a live-stitching driver coming out probably in mid March
  • you'll have to wait for Youtube to enable their 360° live streaming features, or
  • use a custom player based on e.g. Flowplayer or Jwplayer together with a streaming server

The stitcher has just been released by Ricoh. Is anyone else seeing an error message when they try to install it on Windows? Both 64 bit and 32 bit deliver the following to me:

Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action CARegister AddDLL, Location: ...\ThetaUVC_Renderer...

Here is a walkthrough of the installation process:

Scroll down about a page to the UVC THETA section. Make sure you register the driver in Windows 10.

I believe it is 720x480 @ 15fps , motionjpeg
If someone else has different information, please let me know.
The resolution will be improved in the future.

I'm not 100% sure about the fps since OBS says it is 30fps, but I don't think it is.

IIRC it was 1280x640 equirectangular (actually 1280x720 - 720p, but the bottom is black) @ 15 fps. But the PC where I set everything up is at work, so I can't verify it right now.

actually, this sounds right. I'm going to change the unofficial media guide. Thanks. What's the easiest way for me to check what the resolution is?

I just changed the table in the guide to 1280x720 @ 15fps, but I am not 100% this is correct. I would like to check it.

I'm also getting the 1722 error with both the 32 and 64 bit app. I am running them as admin. on Windows 7. Tried rebooting, didn't help. Any idea how to get around this error?

The rest of the error msg.
"Action CACheckSystemRequirements, location: C:\...\CheckSys.exe" & exit !ERRORLEVEL!"

Do you have a Windows 10 computer that you can test this with so we can rule out Windows 7 incompatibility?

Looking at this site, it's not clear if UVC Blender will work with Windows 7.

*Compatible OS: Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and macOS (10.9 to 10.11)
