360 video fallback

Post by nidrig » Tue Oct 09, 2018 11:27 am


How are the different video format handled in pano2vr?

The doc says " .. the browser will go through the list and play the first video it can play back."

For example: per default I provide a 8k 360 video (which can only be handled smoothly on powerful computers)
Then I provide other resolutions: 6k, 4k, 2k, 1k..

How can I know that the max resolution will be provided according to the device? For example, that the 8k won't try to play on an iphone 4, or to be sure that the 8k will play per default if possible.

This is totally up to the browser. The browser starts downloading the file, and if it can't be played the browser switches to the next file.
