Panoweaver 7.3 and browser compatibility


Anyone having trouble seeing their panos in browsers other than Saftari, IE, and Firefox?

I'm having trouble with Google Chrome in Windows, and Android tablets (I think they use Chrome, but not 100% sure).

Are the developers aware of any issues?

Here's the panos that people are having issues seeing:

Thanks in advance!

It's funny when I view it in Google I have to refresh the page several times before the tour displays (never had that happen before)

You seem to be using custom code publish with

<body style="margin:0;">
<script type="text/javascript" src="load.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="json.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">loading("config_pano2.bin");</script>
<strong>If you cannot see the virtual tour, please update your Flash Player <a title="">Here</a></strong><a title=""></a>


it's probably in your coding because normal coding (from Tour Weaver) look something like this
<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
var so = new SWFObject("twviewer.swf", "sotester", "100%", "100%", "9.0.0", "#FFFFFF");
so.addParam("allowNetworking", "all");
so.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "always");
so.addParam("allowFullScreen", "true");
so.addParam("scale", "noscale");
//<!-%% Share Mode %%->
so.addVariable("lwImg", "resources/hibernia_may_2011_hibernia baptist church _.jpg");
so.addVariable("lwBgColor", "255,0,0,0");
so.addVariable("lwBarBgColor", "255,64,64,54");
so.addVariable("lwBarColor", "255,98,64,54");
so.addVariable("lwBarBounds", "-247,-125,480,12");
so.addVariable("lwlocation", "7");
so.addVariable("lwShowLoadingPercent", "true");
so.addVariable("lwTextColor", "255,0,0,0");
so.addVariable("iniFile", "config_Hibernia_May_2011.bin");
so.addVariable("progressType", "0");
so.addVariable("swfFile", "");
so.addVariable("percentType", "0");
so.addVariable("sizeFile", "filesize.txt");
so.addVariable("href", location.href);

It would appear you are attempting to display a HTML5 panorama with browsers other than Safari Browser.

If you want to display in I.E and other non HTML5 compliant browsers you will need to publish to Flash and use the relative Flash HTML code.

Thanks for all your help.


So, from what you are saying, I should probably have two buttons for the user to click - one for iPads, and the others for Flash?

You could do that, but you do not need to.

Choose: Merge Flash VR,HTML5 publish option and the correct version will be displayed based on the browser used.

Be sure to upload "all" published files produced by Panoweaver.
