Even more historic images moved to VR

This two images are again more then 200 years old and now we can view them in VR.

The first image is “A Circular View from the Balloon at its greatest Elevation”, featured in Thomas Baldwin’s Airopaidia (1786).

How to add sound to an VR Panorama

Bild
After I have created panoramas that I can view with a DayDream VR headset, I have now added sound to the image.

 How to create the panoramas: Tutorial: Dresden 1824 - Inside an image from Carl August RichterUpdate: Dresden 1824 - A 195 Year old image as 3D Wireframe in VRTutorial: Dresden 1824 - Inside an image from Carl August Richter - Improved I used the sound from this video I found in Wikipedia:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Stadt_Wehlen_in_der_S%C3%A4chsischen_Schweiz.webm

Then I used the Transmageddon Video Converter to extract the sound from the video and directly convert it to MPEG-4 AAC.

I used this setting:

MPEG4
Sound: MPEG-4 AAC
Video: No Video

Then I renamed my images to Dreden_left.jpg and Dresden_right.jpg and dropped all three files into used this online tool: https://cctoolkit.vectorcult.com/#

And this is the result (You can only hear the sound with the headset, not in the browser):
