Some questions about mobile devices:
1: Is it possible to lock the view (either portrait or landscape)?
2: I would like to set a different FOV for small mobile phone displays than for computers. How can this be done?
3: Full screen mode does not work on iPhone (it works on iPad). Is this a bug?

Thank you in advance,

DeeJay

Hi DeeJay,
Set FoV mode to diagonal as found under the Advanced HTML5 output tab.

Hi Hopki!

Thank you for your reply! That seems to help a little!

Do I understand correctly that it is not possible to choose a separate setting for mobile devices?

And it is also not possible to force the phone to be used in portrait mode?

Full screen doesn't work on the iPhone either. It does on the iPad.

Hi,
The iPad uses the desktop website while iOS uses the mobile website which does not understand the fullscreen API.
You can use an Is Mobile action filter and have a config loaded action to set the view to say 80 or 90 degrees.
But where this goes wrong is with the hotspots, you need to set the FoV to $(af), so the hotspots use the same opening FoV.
