Why External Hotspots are not working

Post by RRuiz » Tue Mar 25, 2014 3:03 am

Why external/web hotspots are not working if I clic them from the tour from the "output" folder ? If I clic them within the P2vr software, there is no issue !! Why ??

I recorded a simple video showing the issue:

I also attached the *.p2vr file for your review.

Please help me what I doing wrong

HI,
This is the Flash security issue that the internal web server was built for.
Please see this TIP.

Hopki hello

Sorry if I am a new guy in this, but still I can´t resolve my issue. The links to the external web pages are still not working.

Can you explain with other words how to resolve it?

Thanks

Hi,
The Flash player will only allow either local or external access when being viewed from your computer or other wise know as locally.
This all works as soon as the tour is uploaded to a server. The reason why it works when you view it through Pano2VR is because Pano2VR has a built in web server.

The setting for this can be found under the Flash outputs Advanced Settings tab, Allow network access.
With this deleted and the tour is published you will be able to access websites but now you will not be able to change nodes.
As said you can have either one or the other.

If you wanted you can however set your Plash plugin to over ride this.
There is a Tip covering this, go to our website, then Documents => Pano2VR => Tips => under General Tips => How to set Flash's Global Security Settings.
Regards,
Hopki
