Youtube VR360 integration

I've tried adding a VR360 from youtube using the youtube video plugin in VR mode. The video plays correctly except that the tracking of the video is not activated; the panorama tracking is still active. If the youtube 360 video tracking could be activated automatically on clicking a hotspot to opens the youtube video, that would be great to maintain the VR experience with youtube. The amount of youtube VR360 videos is growing exponentially with new 360 camera and it's a great way to host "heavy" video clip as well instead of overboosting the local server.

Hi,

btw - just as note if not known - Youtube doesn't provide an API for accessing or embedding the videos directly!
That means it would be not possible to use a video from Youtube and show it in a custom viewer.

Best regards,
Klaus

Yes, Klaus right.
But you can simply follow the example in plugin to include YouTube video. And all will work fine.

The feature request has about 'VR360' and 'gyro tracking' and that's not possible.
