360° Video Tips
Where to watch
You can watch these 360 videos on your phone, computer, or a VR headset. These are high resolution 3.8K files, so if using weak cell data service or poor wifi connection, video quality may suffer.
With our true 360 videos (360×360), you can see 360 degrees side to side and top to bottom. To change the view: move your phone (viewing on cell phone), cursor (on computer), or head (with VR headset). Look around to see the pine needles and the clouds as well as the rivers and mountains directly in front of you. Pro tip: the pine needles are really cool.
Get & use a VR headset if possible
360 videos can be quite an amazing experience, leaving you with the impression and feeling of having been in that place at the time. It is possible to watch these videos on a screen and drag your cursor around, but to get the best immersive experience we recommend viewing these videos on an inexpensive VR headset.
Enjoy & share!
If this is your first time with a 360 video, or even if it’s not, ENJOY! You can pause at any time and enjoy the scenery or re-watch as many times as you like. If you enjoy these first videos, please share the email signup link to a friend. We would love to email them the videos for free as well.
