@Kolor please help!

The HTML5 compatibility has been provided for planar panoramas but multi-resolution is not supported which makes the Large-format images and Gigapixel panoramas just like a simple image without any capability to zoom in.

Moreover since, I m using the html5 to output the virtual tour for offline viewing in a DVD (with the floorplan and everything working), I cannot have the planar panoramas work with multi-resolution. In the flash one, the zoom function using the mouse scroll, does not work offline.

Really in a problem to view the tour offline with all functionality!

Kolor has explained that implementing multi-res for large partail panos iusing a spherical projection is currently impractical because it would result in the generation of very large numbers of unused tiles.

In the flash one, the zoom function using the mouse scroll, does not work offline.

Are you using an offline web server?

Available miniServers are MAMP for MacOS / Server2Go and Uniform Server for Windows.
Also krpanoTestingServer for Windows and MacOS.
Z-WAMP and XAMPP can be used too.


Multires on planar panoramas should work on html5 player. Only partial sphere are not displayed into multires.
