There are several ways to record the Mirror ball theme 

1. if you have the Theta app (it's free) and a 360 spherical image 

2. if you have the url of a 360 image within the free theta host site 

once you try it out you will quickly realise the options are awesome 
to have a 360 spherical photo that you can rotate to any angle while zooming in / out and talking 

the cool trick is that you can turn the view to any angle by moving around which means you have smooth movement, but dnt move to quickly 

whats hot

in other words
if you want to tell a story about a place but dnt have time to record the video ,.. 

just snap a 360 photo 
then upload it and create a video from the photo with rotate and zoom in out 

Theta host site is free
sign up with fbk or twitter a/c
upload 360 spherical from any camera 

add animation to the image using special hashtags - see page Theta site add animation

Theta app for camera or editing is free - download link in this page
this means you can create mirror ball video on ph (local) 

if you highly detailed 360 spherical drone shots .. this theme words well .. record the screen and rotate the phone while pinch zoom in out while narrating 

Theta app

1. you have the free app and a image in your phone
in early 2018 Theta upgrade their app to allow customisation of the animation in terms of any angle, direction and options for pause

go to Theta site - download section
scroll down to see the apps

apps for the camera and another for editing 
play around with the controls to learn the options and enjoy the output 

the output can be photo at different angles and sizes or convert the image into video at angle angle or size including mirror ball

if you dnt have the apps or the image - you can find the url to an image loaded within their site and 

screen capture a photo of any size or angle 
screen record a video of animation because you can change the display 

see examples below 

Screen Capture

2.  record video of image in the Theta site 

example  - Mirror Ball display

the options are endless - meaning - as you move the screen in any angle you can talk and explain whats going on 

example it might be a tale of people with food or a place 

with the gyro setting on as you turn the phone around the view changes with perfect smooth movement, then use your fingers to zoom while talking


Tutorial below on how to record using wither a desktop app or smartphone app


IOS Smartphone

dnt forget: you can change the display to landscape by rotating the phone before you start recording

recording apps 

IOS  -  standard IOS features to record images (screen capture) and video 

you should know  or google it (hold on button and home button at same time in portrait or landscape mode to suit)

in this page we show how to record video 

if not sure simply google IOS how to screen capture video

the option should be in settings, flip up to access and press the record button, to force audio on / off  hold the record button for a few seconds until the audio option appears

once the video has been recorded you can use 3rd party video apps to edit as usual

you can't beat FREE Lightshot, when you see what it can do you will agree, I've tried man and this one is my go to
the image partial screen can include comments and symbols and upload to free cloud 
and somehow it has an option to find similar images (what the Fox) 

if you find that the cloud copy will not stay live in your website (thanks google) then start using Google docs to use as a hub for screen captures 
I use Google docs to save screen captures and copy from the doc which means they can never be auto deleted by google from your sites .. which is what happens when you copy from other sites  as you have not control over the original url

I use cloud service with extension for chrome browser  Screencast

transfer files to / from desktop to smartphone

we use and recommend sendanywhere
