Two bugs about tw5

Recently I download and install the tourweaver 5.0 091225,

I found two bugs. the first,when I set a hotspot in a scene link to other scene,the Transition Effect set to 'Walk' effect. after the tour be published   open it and click on the hotspot,the scene shake a time  before the walk effect appear.(the same problem in http://www.easypano.com/Gallery/Tourweaver500/song-city/virtual-tour.html)

The second, .FLV file cann't be used in tw5. after import a FLV file preview or publish the tour to open it,it will stop at the loading frame, the tour cann't be load completely.

Do you have an example you could publish that contains a FLV file? I've used TW5 now for a couple of weeks and I have not found any issue with the FLV files except for the fact you have to click to play. And when I do it plays all the way through without issue.

I do have a suggestion or a feature request of EP though relative to the FLVs. If the FLV file is contained within a "pop up" (I like to call them layers) then allow an option for the FLV file to play when the "pop up" appears. Don't make the user click on the video. One click good, two clicks bad.

I will give credit to EP where it is due, the FLV stops playing when a user hides the "pop up" This is good. Before the latest build it kept playing after the "pop up" was hidden.

I guess you mean it "takes" time before the Walk effect to the next scene is played out?

This is because the "next" scene has to be downloaded first. Not until it is fully downloaded will the transition to the next scene happen.

tourweaverlover, I use .FLV video files for true videos and SWF files for animated buttons or hotspots (because they loop).

To help troubleshoot your FLV problem Google "download youtube videos" and there are a number of sites that will allow you to download the original .FLV file.

Before TW5 I did not have any FLV files just laying around so this is what I did to get a variety for testing. One long, one short and one that was of higher quality. All worked with TW5 but I could see issues if a FLV was rendered from software that uses a obscure codec.

I'm not a flash expert but I think it has something to do with how the virtual tour has a one image for the viewer. It's better if you anchor four pieces to top left, top right, bottom right, bottom left. If you split it into four pieces it will be a less power hungry flash file.
