I want to have in a panorama a button (a camera icon),
once u click it an mp3 will play
and a flat picture will be show on top of the panorama.

Could I do this with a hotspot in that panorama?

In the skin editor how i have to manage the mp3 for the click of the button?
I have to put the sound on the hotspot template or to the button?
I'm trying to use source "mouse click" and action "play media" but he ask me loop and i'm confused where i have to refer to the file
or where to import it.

Sorry too much question I'm still noob.
I remember a video tutorial about area hotshop with the camera snap sound and a photo detail but i cannot found it now.

have you seen the sound tutorial ?
(it does work without skins but it is "position" related on your current viewpoint)

If you still want to use this as "play on click" you must setup your own hotspot type in the skin and use it later at the place where you want to have it. For this approach you must define a own hotspot type for each different sound first before you can use itIt does somehow work with a single hotspot type, look at the hotspot tutorials first (basically it is: first define the hotspot in the skin, later apply the skin to your panorama and then place the hotspot in your panorama).

For a decent description please look at the wiki page on narration.

Please see: ... _Narration
I know it says Flash, however will also work with HTML5, just not the SWF object, but popup image text and sounds will all work.

Please see:
This is HTML5 compatible with an object2VR project. So if really needed can be done, visit with no Flash device to see HTML5 version.
