Hi All.
Do we actually have a way yet of including 360 video in a Virtual tour?


Cheers, Rob

Hi Rob,
I can't see how for the moment as 360 video is Flash only. To display the 360 video the player requires the HTML page to link the video to the player as as you can't use an iFrame in flash, nope.
May be in the future.
Regards,
Hopki

Hi,
Thomas demonstrated HTML5 video a very long time ago but it required WebGL.
At that time Apple and Microsoft did not support WebGL which meant a large market share of devices that could not display it using the browser.

Times have changed and WebGL is fast becoming the standard in the top browsers with now Safari WebGL enabled. So now is the time for WebGL dependent features to be developed, or should I say to be pulled out of the closet as most of the market can now utilise them.
Im not saying when we will do this but am saying the time for development is closer.
