Have you guys seen this letter from Steve Jobs? http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/
Thomas, what do you think about adding HTML5 or H.264 to your viewers? I'm sure it's harder than it sounds, but everyone is going mobile.
Take care,

Add H.264 to Pano2VR???
Flash already supports it since version 9.something, but it's for compressing/decompressing video and has nothing to do with interactive panoramas.

HTML5 is not a fixed standard yet and it won't be for quite some time too.
My guess is this iPodpad 'thing' will blow over once alternatives (supporting Flash) hit the market.
However, in the long run HTML5 will probably become important enough for us to keep a keen eye on!

Cheers!

Erik,

Thanks for the info. I'm not that well-versed in the all the formats and how they fit together.
Take care,

Michael
