Hi everybody

I'm trying to set up a intro video (Full Screen on the browser, auto play and totally responsive), like this example:
http://procontent-tuurid.s3.amazonaws.c ... ndex.html (congratulations @Lauri Veerde for your incredible good work!)

But not working as it should. Any ideas?

I've my file.mp4 movie, tried different options:

Option 1: dragging the video to tour browser, start panorama, input video 3x2, start on load, loop. Problem: appears always equirectangular, impossible to manage that appears flat like the example. Any solutions?
And if it's flat, everything is perfect, but isn't a video anymore, just the flat video image (file.tif)
If it would be a 360 video or a only flat photo everything would work perfectly, but it's a 3x2 movie. Maybe is the solution the QuickTime option? tried type, Quick time, but getting error: file.tif can't be opened (the tour browser doesn't detect the movie, just a flat tif)
Any ideas that the video is recognized as a video and not as a flat image?

Option 2. Hotspot video file, active at the start with timer, activate, variable true. Results, working, but problems with the responsive design. I use scaling but the frame and background appears in different ways when I resize the browser window.

thank you in advance!

Please see: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13104&p=54817&hilit ... deo#p54817
As this will crop depending landscape or portrait make sure the video focus in the centre of the screen and also make sure the video has no audio, or select mute in the video elements properties.
Browsers will not auto start video with audio.

Hello @Hopki,
I had a question on this.
Is it possible that when the intro video is playing, on clicking the mouse, the video gradually fades away/dissolves to reveal the tour? This would also fade the audio in the video.

Many thanks,

Hi,
You can use the Alpha to fade out the video, the video should not have sound or it will not alto start?
