As long as MP has no serious competitor nothing is going to change. The fact that they shut down all MP to google streetview conversion services is a gigantic step backwards. Very shortsighted. If there was competition they could not act like this.

I'm confused. Are you saying that these services from 3rd parties are no longer available because Matterport is stopping them from operating. i.e. API or Terms of Service(Killing?) Just checked the threads and only see discussion on API with Matterport intervening.

@ploft

Yes. Matterport changed its API on Friday to disable these three tools:

MP2SQFT Beta Square Feet/Meters Calculator Tool by @Metroplex360
MatterPoint XYZ Point Cloud Download Tool by @Metroplex360
2D Furniture Planner Tool for Matterport Models by @Metroplex360

Yes. Matterport asked two developers to take down their Matterport to Google Street View solutions:

✓ MP2SV (backstory)
✓ MP2GSV (backstory)

@ploft / @DanSmigrod - And on Friday, all 3 of my tools went BACK online because there's a loophole that they have yet to close. So if anyone is interested in trying these before they are gone - now is the time.

In addition, MP2SV and Howner.com has also been patched to use the remaining loophole.

I understand that, MP2SV and Howner.com Matterport to Google Street View Service no longer work, as a result of Matterport actions ...

Just updating this thread, www.mp2sqft.com is back and operational but lacks visual display of the floorplans and the advanced 'Workshop' features that allowed a user to fill in the gaps in their tour to recalculate SQFT/M2 of an entire space.

Hi to all
I've been following at we-get-around forum the current situation between Matterport, the community of users and developers. A few years ago MIT Technology Review published a very interesting article about these kind of issues. You may read it at the following link:

Thanks for sharing. A GREAT read, including:

"Tapping external expertise and sharing the load of innovation with others allows a company to expand its scope and bring new ideas to market faster."

Thank heavens Matterport reads EVERY WORD of the Forum. Perhaps articles like this will help them change their mind about killing innovation by super-talented third-party developers.
