Do Stitched Photo Videos Provide Value, or are they Outdated Technology?

Stitched photo videos have been around awhile. I’ve had many people ask me lately if they are still relevant, do consumers really watch them, and why dealers should have them when they already have a large number of photos and vehicle description on the VDP.
