Hi all,

I have just upgraded to version 5 (non pro, although I will probably be updating to that sometime this week).

Love the the latest functionality, but one basic one is not working for me.

Whenever I select to prefer Flash in the html5 HTML page, I get some weird tiles on top of panorama going on (both locally and when on a public website).

The Flash version works fine when you hit that one from its html file (link below).

But when you hit the html5 index.html that has prefer flash option checked, you
get the strangeness. It works correctly when you hit flash directly like below.

If I uncheck the prefer Flash, then the html5 version displays as it should.

Any idea why it is behaving this way (did I miss a setting).

FYI...I did try putting all the files in one folder, that that resulted
in the same tiled strangness.

Here is the link to the html5 page with prefer flash checked.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated,

Sean B. Halliday

Hi Sean,
If this is a non Pro project then the Flash Fallback Player will only work with a single panorama.
Multi node tours will not work with the Flash Fallback Player and you will need to use the Flash output.
Then under the HTML5 output use the SWF from the Flash output in the Flash Fallback File, deselecting use Fallback Player.
The Flash Fallback Player only works with multi node project when using Pano2VR Pro.

Thanks,

I had not gone and learned the newer ways that flash fallback is processed.

I found the video for the new way and now I understand.

Love the new processes and everything in V5.

Today I upgraded to Pro and it is awesome. It will take so much less time to create a multi-node tour and easy to edit.
Worth every penny.

Thanks again for straightening me out on the flash fallback.
