Tour Load Time for Clients: Quite Variable

by AlanS » Thu Dec 19, 2013 9:54 pm

I've got a virtual tour here:

http://firstshowinggallery.com/tours/27 ... it140.html

Panos created in Autopano Giga, tour created with PTP 2 b5. I'm getting reports from clients that the actual load time for the site varies significantly (largely from PCs and Macs). I'm seeing it load in a second or two (not locally, from link above), but sometimes I'm confronted with a black screen for up to 5 seconds before anything happens. Other clients report having a black screen for upwards of 30 seconds before ANYthing shows up.

I'm curious what the variables are that affect tour load time. This one only has six panos, but is somewhat rich in terms of content: gallery, maps, geolocation, PDF, and lots of styles used for the branding package. Does the density of the design affect load time?

Also would like to know if this is a known issue and if the betas are working towards improving this aspect of tour loads.

Thanks,

Alan

For future viewers, this question was also posted here...

... and Benjamin from Kolor addresses the possibilility of MP3 sound preloads being a potential bottleneck in tour load times. Quoting out many of the preloads (if you have many, which I do in the above linked tour) could speed up loading.

Yes 6 mp3 are preloaded before tiles in your tour.
