Video Useless After Google Photos Upload

Postby Sababado » 21 Aug 2016, 14:34

I took a lot of video on the Theta S camera and then transferred that video to my Nexus 5x phone. I backed up the video on the phone using the Google Photos app and then deleted the video from the phone to save space; so the original video is gone. Now when I download the backed up video I can't use it in either the Theta S app on the phone or on my mac. I constantly see the error message "Failed to convert" on the computer and "Select a spherical video" on the phone.

I believe this is a known issue. Every conversion messes with it - you always need to keep a copy of the original.

That said, you can at least try to use the spherical metadata injector-
