    Is it possible to live stream Gear 360 view in Unity, on a program running in Windows?

    I think Gear 360 only connects to Samsung phones via bluetooth.
    but it has the option to broadcast to yutube, fb, or Samsung VR.
    Is it possible to get this internet stream and extract the frames to be used in a Windows Unity program?

    It seems possible with iphone for the older version of Gear 360,

    I think it is using Open Spherical Camera API to connect Gear 360 with phone using Wifi, then in the Unity program it access Gear 360 via IP.

    But for new version Gear 360, I think it connects using bluetooth only.
    So is it possible to live stream Gear 360 view in Unity, on a program running in Windows?
    Has somebody have insights on this? Thank you.

    Samsung has an SDK for controlling the Gear360 (the 2017 version anyway). I'm guessing this could be accessed from within a Unity project but I haven't seen anyone do it yet.

    You can get access to the Samsung SDK on their developer site here:

    Please update this thread if you make any progress! I'm interested in this as well.
