Is there anything unusual about those problem URLs? Some 'odd' syntax, perhaps?
I had no problems with hotspots linking to external URLs when conducting a quick test using Beta 7 and FF with Windows XP:http://www.autopano.net/forum/p58401-2010-02-05-00-30-13#p58401
MediaVets, I have tried several urls and none work, here are two of the urls that I have tried that do not work, please could you try them and see if they work or not on your system, the syntax on these does not look unusual.http://photoweblab.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p210754829-2.jpghttp://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/200604/alhambra/default.htm
Now I am very confused.
I created a new tour with hotspots linking to your URLs.
The hotspots don't work, on local playback.
I checked that my test tour I did the other day with hotspots linked to external URLs still worked - and it does.
I hand edited the XML for the above working example and changed my original URLs to your URLs on the hotspots - and it works, the hotspots link to your external URLs just fine on local playback..
I am now at at a loss to explain what's going on.
