Default HTML5 support / Move to Krpano

I'm a FPP user from years.
It's hard to say, but yesterday i buy Krpano.
I think that FPP development move in not right way for professionals in the last months (gui, multilanguage etc.).
What i really need today is extended programming actions/scripting/xml and, specially, iPad support (i don't like it, but unfortunately like to my clients).
If FPP have iPad support in the future weeks i stay with FPP (with economically support), otherwise i will have to go with Krpano.
If FPP will not have HTML5 in the future i don't think it will have a long life (and i like FPP!).

Funny... considering that there ARE solutions available for FPP content to be displayed on the iDevices. Why not use one of the existing solutions?

And despite what some people may think; the only way forward is to make things easier for EVERYONE, and not only for a few code savvy users. In order to make things easier, a GUI is the first logical step. That is also why most computer users, and iDevice users... and other platform users do everything they do... through some sort of a graphical user interface.

Sure there are a few people who may be playing with command line things ... but who cares?

Any panorama software that does not offer extensive GUI for it's users, is doomed in the long run. Why anyone would like to play with hand-code for weeks to achieve goal "a-b-c", rather than making a few clicks in a GUI environment and achieve goal "a-b-c-d-e-f-g" in a few hours, is beyond what I can consider logical.... but that's just me (and a few billion other like-minded).

And a much needed PS:

What you people call "HTML5".... has absolutely NOTHING got to do with HTML5.
Call it SAFARI BROWSER panorama player... that properly describes it for what it is. Or Webkit. But please stop calling it HTML5, since that is NOT what it is.

Sorry, maybe I'm missing some information.
Can you tell me the solutions for iDevices using FPP?
Thanks.

Default VR5 and Panohub

There is no updates on both VR5 and Panohub,
and for vr5 script FPP is not an essential,

VR5 is an opensource and Panohub is a commercial

In Panohub there is lots of limitations, and i'm not happy about the template.

Uhm...
I think this is stand-alone programs that show their tours (with very very limited features compared with FPP) or redirect to a tour made with FPP if the devices have Flash, but not showing FPP tours on iDevices. It's right?

What i mean is FPP with rendering made with javascript and the HTML5 CSS 3D transforms for display FPP tours on iDevices with one xml configuration file for both Flash and javascript/Html5.

I really don't know how advanced or simple those solutions are. Probably quite simple, but how complex do things have to be to be useful on iPhones? If it is simply for displaying a pano, those can do it.

I have also been struggling with supporting panos on the iPad.
Almost all of my customers are asking for it.
I tried PanoHub and it is to limiting and clunky to use.

I have done a few projects with Pano2VR but the documentation is lacking.
Even looking at their tutorials dozens of times I am still struggling with it.

I am playing dumb for the time being until I can find time to nail a project in Pano2vr.

I sit here hoping that Steve Jobs will cave and add Flash to Apple devices....

For Trausti: yes, on iPhones the tour may be simple but on iPads can be very more complex, almost the same Flash version tour.

Maybe another way to go is to keep FPP for flash and "the other player" for iThings.
There is an advanced GUI for the other player now. It's easy to set up a script which detects the user's device and redirects accordingly. Here's an example where the two players are used.
http://www.360corsica.com/clients/ho...tes/index.html
After all, the user interface should be different for iThings.
I'm happy with this solution as I still use FPP and can do iThing tours if asked.
If you need any help, just let me know.
Mark
