Designed for Pano2VR 5 and above, Standard and Pro.
This component opens a web page or website inside the player.
Examples of use:
  • Restaurant Tour with point hotspots to the menu of the day and the reservation page.
  • Art gallery can have point hotspots that link to the artists own website.
  • You just want to open a website within the player rather than open a new page.
Please note:
Websites like Google and Garden Gnome Software will not allow a page to be embedded with an iframe so will not display.
However no know restrictions when on the same domain or with websites that do not have this restriction such as Wikipedia.

Good afternoon,

in the post you try the topic of opening a web page within the player.
In the cases you explain how to do it from a hotspot or from a silhouette.

I'm trying to get the same thing done but from a skin button.
I find it impossible
Somebody could help me?

Basically I want to run exactly the same popup web viewer from a skin button.

It's possible? Thanks in advance.
