We’ve figured out the way to preview zcam right in VR headset during the shooting. Now it works with good internet only, but we are working on internet-less (local) solution. It’s really helpful to preview things right away in headset. How to get it working:
PC with two ethernet ports or a laptop with 1 ethernet port and WIFI
Any headset with DeoVR installed on it (quest is good)
Hook up Zcam with computer via ethernet, open zcam controller application, go tools > wonderlive
Stop here for a moment, now you need a place to stream it to, for this I recommend twitch, create an account. From twitch you need 2 things: RTMP address closest to you and your key.
Find addresses here https://stream.twitch.tv/ingests/, choose the closest, here you’ll find the key https://www.twitch.tv/broadcast/dashboard/streamkey
- Go back to wonderlive, first choose automatic calibration, set resolution to 4K and bitrate to 15000, for RTMP part paste url and key from above. Example
rtmp://live-fra02.twitch.tv/app/fa212fajfa12t9fnaj (my key goes after app/)
Click stream, zcam should start streaming after few seconds to your profile that you’ve registered with twitch for example twitch.tv/philip
Grab your VR headset, open deo, open browser type your profile URL in it, it’ll open twitch in 2D, now click “Open in youtube” on top right, it’ll play stream in deo. Choose 180, left right. That’s it.
There is about 10-30 seconds lag now via twitch, depending on your location and etc. We are working on local solution with minimal lag atm, but no news when it’ll be available yet.
We will streamline it in the next few weeks for even better DeoVR playback
