Since 2005 Flickr, a Yahoo-owned photo sharing site, has supported a relatively large community of 360º photographers with “tens of thousands” of 360º photographs uploaded to the site. So it came as no surprise when they announced an upcoming VR app in September. Now, three months later, Flickr has released Flickr VR for the Samsung Gear VR, but from my initial impressions it probably could have done with a little more time in the tank.
Does not – yet – support stereoscopic viewing

Starting in the fall of 2014, Youtube began dropping support for 3D videos. Now, Google briefly mentions it will be launching 360 degree VR 3D support soon (it’s #7 on this video).
Presumably, 3D VR will also support conventional 3D streaming again, as well.
Google Cardboard is an inexpensive, simple way for consumers to try out virtual reality tech – using a simple lens/cardboard viewer and a smart phone, plus apps and various online content, consumers can try out VR for just a few dollars. Cardboard, with appropriate apps, is also a great way to watch 3D still and 3D video content.
I have Google Cardboard and recommend it for those interested in trying out 3D VR and 360 degree VR/videos. The future is coming faster than you know!
This implies 3D is returning to Youtube – but in a bigger way – using virtual reality (VR) technology, 360 degree immersive video camera technology and VR viewers.
