Hi,

Just rerendered a big tour that was made with the 3.1.4 version with the 4 Beta release .
I notice that all sound was not playing in the resulting output. When opening the config file
and then opening the media settings ... (no changes) .... closing the media settings, saving the
config file and rerender again, the sound is playing ....

Can there be a compatibility issue between sound configuration in the old and new pano2vr release ?

Regards,

Arjan

I found another more severe sound problem which is forcing me to downgrade to 3.1.4.

After opening and saving the media the sounds are present in de panorama ... but when hopping to the next pano (with .swf links)
the sounds of the first panorama are also present in the next panorama. It looks like it's adding all sounds up. The result is when you walk
through a 20 pano tour you collected all the sounds in the last view ... birds that should be outside are also heard insite a building etc.

I also noticed this effect when experimenting with video, when the video is not stopped and you go to the next pano, the video-sound is still heard in
the rest of the tour ....

(platform windows 7 x64, using latest firefox, Google Chrome and IE)

regards,

I noticed a problem too, at least in HTML 5. The version 3 player will not play sounds configured from version 4. The XML files, which hold the configuration, use different tags for the sounds. The version 4 player is backwards compatible, but the reverse is not the case.

I fixed this by batch replacing the missing xml lines in de config files:

Find the next reg-exp:

</position>
.*<id>

And replace it with:

</position>
<videorect/>
<type>audio</type>
<id>

(I use Actual Search & Replace to do this)
