Running local files from SDcard in latest Opera for android?

Post by Boothy » Sat Aug 10, 2013 7:21 pm

Hi

The latest android version of Opera (15.0.1162.61541) states in the `whats new`( google play store) that files can now be played from local sdcard. When I run the html from a local tour I see all of the skin elements and loading bar but no panorama. Opera also provides a series of error messages (see attached image)- can anyone explain what they mean ? Is this reference only for video files ?

Many Thanks

Boothy

use the Mobile Firefox...

this example - http://gardengnomesoftware.com/samples/ ... r/tour.zip
unpack and copy to Flash card in your smartphone or tablet and running without any problem open the OUT/index file with Firefox

Thanks hum@no.id

I do use Firefox already and find it works OK with local html 5 except Gyro (current devices Galaxy Note 10.1 & Note 2). I was hoping the new version Of Opera may address this or at least and provide another android option for local files, I am not sufficiently knowledgeable to understand error messages and therefore wondered if this was a webkit issue still to be addressed by Opera or it was something that can be resolved in Pano2vr ?

Thanks again

In this example pack - http://gardengnomesoftware.com/samples/ ... r/tour.zip - HTML5 settings "Include Gyroscope control" switching OFF (unchecked)
chek the item and re-save this project to output now

Hi
I can get gyro to work, it just works badly in Firefox, usually the rotation is inverted and movement is very rough compared to safari.
Thanks

Hi the new opera is not supporting local files. but if you have the same tour in your website, once visit all tours using wi-fi or 3g data, now all the data is stored in the device as cache memory will remain till you clear the data. you can now turn off wi-fi or data and visit the same link your tour will play without any problem.
