360 Video Metadata

Use the Spherical Video standard for encoding 360 video.

Camera Manufacturer and Model

We strongly recommend that you specify camera manufacturer and model in user-data atoms in your MP4 360 video. We support two ways of doing this:

  • manu: Camera manufacturer (make)
  • modl: Camera model

OR

  • ©mak: Camera manufacturer (make)
  • ©mod: Camera model

Camera Firmware Version

We strongly recommend that you specify camera firmware version in moov/udta/meta/ilst/FIRM as a string in your MP4 360 video.

Verification

You can verify your video with ffprobe command:

$ ffprobe your_video.mp4
