First sneak peak at the Flashificator H5 (HTML5) panorama player
Posted: 11 Jan 2013 at 5:12 GMT
First sneak peak at our new H5 player:
flashificator.com/tests/tpp/ 1773x1773 sized cubefaces

For iPhone4 and other devices that encounter problems with the above link, try this one with smaller cubefaces:
flashificator.com/tests/tpp_iphone 512x512 sized cubefaces

Please report back if you experience some strangeness... any and all reporting of bugs or errors or issues will be of great help.

The Android referred to in the following issues list are Samsung S3 phone and Samsung 10.1 running on Android ver. 4.0.4

Known issues:
Opera: Does not work.
Chrome on Android: Pretty much useless due to browser not being up to date technologically. Only one cubeface shows at any given time.
Chrome on desktop (PC/Mac): Cubeface edge clipping occurs. White background becomes visible. This is not a huge issue, but less than desirable. Google needs to improve the browser.
Firefox on desktop (PC/Mac): Partial jerkyiness (hiccups) when moved. This is a browser issue we can hope will be fixed in the future.
Firefox on Android: A bit slow, but works fine.
Native browser on Android: excessive clipping of the panos.
iPhone 3GS: doesn't work - to be investigated.
iPhone 4 iOS 6 needs smaller cubefaces or it will crash:
flashificator.com/tests/tpp_iphone

The above list of issues is there so that you will not be reporting back what we already know on this end smile

If you have some Android devices that can not display the panos, by all means let us know.
If you have any of the following models of Blackberry, please report back if and how things look there:
BlackBerry Bold (9900/9930)
BlackBerry Torch (9810/9850/9860)
BlackBerry Curve (9350/9360/9370/9380)

For now, there is only legacy movement enabled (no streetview drag mode, but it will of course be added before the player is released).

Looking forward to your findings.

Thanks Steve.

This is an ok tool to show what the content looks like in the devices, but it is of course showing the content using the browser we are using, and it doesn't crash the iPhone 3 display smile

Thank you for reporting on the iPhone 3G Burake.

There are many devices and browsers that can not handle webkit fully yet. Same goes for even the latest iPad and iPhone... the results do vary using the different devices from the same producers.

I will publish the results from the various computers and OS' we have tested so-far, in a couple of days or so.

Please feel free to download the following .pdf file which contains the test results of 15 Android devices with the H5 player.

goo.gl/nRXGq

Apple devices were tested as well, but the results have not been typed in yet (and no, the iDevices did not bring uniform results either).

Google Chrome: Does not work for mobile devices (phones/tablets)

Firefox has issues, but works on 9 of the units tested. We could not install FF on a couple of devices due to not having access code for the play-store, and one device did not support/allow installation of FF).

Native browser on the devices provided really bad and really good results.

HTML5/Webkit/CSS/3D Transitions is far from being stable and well supported and compatible. A few more years will surely help hardware and browser providers to improve things.

In any case, the tests we conducted should be of interest for the panorama community.

The .pdf document contains links to the 3 different test projects (3 different cubeface sizes).
