I'm on Win7 64.
Andrew, I just noticed something in your screen caps. You're using FLV files as the linked videos. When I open b11 and try to link the object file, the list of file types doesn't include FLV.
Really? I think you said you are using APT V1.1 beta 11? See my screenshots below - the first shows Link/Object filetype selection in APT V1.1 beta 11 and the second show Link/Object file type selection in Panotour Pro V1.5 beta 1. Both have a Video filetype options.
I've used SWF files (which is in the list). While the All Files option is available, typically, that doesn't normally work because the acceptable file types are listed.
I thought you wished to use video - SWF isn't a video format. And 'All files' does exactly what I'd expect on my system - it list all types of file.
I tried using FLV files. The videos don't start playing immediately, which is different. But when clicking on the hotspot, they don't play at all. The second window opens and the image is the first image in the video but the video doesn't play
I cannot reproduce that behaviour. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps your FLV files are really very large (in terms of file size) and you have this tour on-line but are not allowing enough time for the video file to download before is starts to play. The largest video file I tried was 12MB and that plays back as I described with local (from my PC) playback of the exported tour - I haven't tried putting the tour on-line. How large are the FLV files you are using?
I think it's time to give up. I just don't think I have the chops to deal with Kolor's wacked out software.
I feel that your judgement is unfair.
First of all you admit that you are trying to use Autopano Tour to create a multimedia presentation and not a conventional panoramic virtual tour; but that's OK by me, it can be fun to use software in novel ways, and I find that I can achieve what you say you wish to achieve.
Then you claim to experience great difficiulty doing what I have no difficulty in doing - I wonder how that can be and try to help by presenting my working examples.
You claimed to be doing just as I was doing in my examples when it now emerges that you were not - you were using SWF files and not FLV files.
You claim there's no option to select FLV video files when I'm sure there is.
And so it goes on.
Nevertheless I'm happy to continue to try to help you achieve the result you seek - but if you wish to give up...
