What is Wonda VR ?
With Wonda VR, you can create immersive experiences and enrich your 360 photos and videos with interactive visual annotations, links and sounds.
At any time, you can preview it in your web browser or by using your Samsung Gear VR, Daydream view or Cardboard headsets.
In this documentation, you will find information on how to get the most out of the Wonda VR ecosystem, including:
- Wonda VR Studio, your Desktop Editor
- Wonda VR Web Player for instant local preview
- A hosted Web Player for private and public web distribution
- Wonda VR Cloud Solution and Content Delivery Network to host, encode and stream your content
- Wonda VR Apps for iOS and Android to preview your project with a Cardboard, Daydream View and Gear VR headset or in magic windows mode.
Wonda VR Studio:
Wonda VR Studio gives you access to a palette of editing features dedicated to 360° VR Video experiences: the medialibrary, the storyboard, a sequence editor and productivity tools such as automatic autosaves etc.
Wonda VR Studio is available on desktop for Mac and PC and works with Wonda companion web player and mobile apps for instant preview of your project with your Gear VR, Daydream or Cardboard VR headset.
Wonda VR Cloud:
With one click, your project edited in the studio is synchronized on the Wonda VR server, your videos are automatically transcoded in HLS and streamed through mobile apps and the online web player.
Your contents are hosted on a secure and robust cloud and are available in the best condition all over the world via Amazon Web Services CDN (Cloudfront).
Wonda VR Web Player:
Since the 1.7 version, we have introduced a new web player hosted on our Cloud so that you’re sure your project is always seen in the best condition depending on the user’s internet connection and device. All projects you are watching can be shared on your favorite social network in one click. More information here.
For the time being, the web player is only meant to be used in 360° mode only on desktop. No VR headset can be used. To view your project in the headset, you can click on the goggle icon to launch the project on mobile.
The Web Player is compatible with recent versions of web browsers that support the WebGL API and in particular the texImage2D method. This includes the recent versions of the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge.
We recommend using the latest Desktop versions of Chrome or Firefox.
For non supported desktop browsers, the web player will display a message that asks to use a recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
NB1: The Web Player is dependant on the browser support for WebGL. For instance, a browser may disable WebGL on some blacklisted graphic cards.
NB2: The performance of the Web Player is highly dependant on the graphic capabilities of the device.
NB3: Note that the web player is only supported on desktop. If your users open a Wonda VR project using mobile web browser, they will automatically be redirected to the Wonda VR mobile app.
Wonda VR Mobile Apps:
Wonda VR comes with native mobile Apps optimized for Android, Oculus Mobile, Daydream and iOS platforms. It’s now an all-in-one place to not only preview and share your own experience, but also to discover the creations of other Wonda VR users.
You will be able to access your experiences either in “Magic Window” mode (by moving and tilting your phone to explore a 360° video) or Side-by-Side view (users can view the experience in a VR headset such as Google Cardboard, Daydream View or Sa).
If you have a Samsung Gear VR compatible phone, you can install a native Gear VR app “extension” of the Wonda VR app for Android. It allows you to preview your project using your Gear VR headset.
If you have a phone that is Google Daydream ready, you can natively preview your project using a Daydream headset.
