Web VR: not visible hotspots

Post by Bostjan » Tue May 14, 2019 6:47 am

I have compiled the virtual tour with the auto set hotspots which are visible on PC monitor but when entering the Web VR mode (Oculus GO or cardboard) I can't see the hotspots > example: http://www.burger.si/Italy/360/Italija.html
With the same skin as here: http://www.burger.si/France/360/2006/France.html hotspots are visible but some time is needed to be loaded to the "visibility". On the other hand like here: http://www.burger.si/Netherlands/360/vrp.html hotspots are visible immediately.
All "VR e-lessons" are hosted on the same server. It there a way to set the hotspots to load faster or "at all"?

Older versions (for cardboard only) "before Web VR" are 'smooth" with hotspots, like http://www.burger.si/Brazil/Iguazu/vrp.html (same server)

...addition: tours like to freeze randomly on the PC screen (compiled with the latest beta version of p2VR)

Hi Bostjan,
Just to let you know, not forgotten, I am out later so probably won't get to this until tomorrow, my headset is in the office.
Thus said opening your links with my iPhone 7 works ok, the hotspots loaded ok as well. As said will test on Android, and Oculus Go and Daydream later.
Regards,
Hopki

Hi Bostjan,
Last problem first, tours freezing up.
I have not seen this and this is the first mention of it.
Do you have a particular tour that freezes up?
If so do you have a link to it?

As far as hotspot images, this is down to the order of loading, currently, we load the tiles first then the hotspot images.
But speaking with Thomas he already has plans to load the thumbnail first.
Regards,
Hopki

I have figured out why the visualization froze - the problem was with a custom defined hotspot with action 'open next panorama' with dynamic linking to other locations within the same project. When it happened that the location was out of the project, e.g. http://location the pano with such hotspot froze when was opened. I solved that with the clone of that hotspot (renaming variables sure) and action 'go to URL'.

Hotspots not showing might be caused because tours are quite large (200+ > panos) and loading the spherical hotspot is slower - just my guess...

Hi Bostjan,
As said we will change the loading order so this will help.
