Hi,

yes, it should be, but only as <plugin> or NOT-distorted <hotspot>,
to use it as distorted hotspot, "bitmap access" would be necessary, but Youtube doesn't allow that!

best regards,
Klaus

hmm...
i've used a devalvr to embed the youtube video, check it here. is that some sort of non-distorted type, or they did it somehow else?

thanks

Hi,

yes, but DevalVR is not Flash!

the Flashplayer has security restrictions which can't be broken by Flash itself
youtube would need to allow the access explicitly in their crossdomain.xml file, but this is not the case,

best regards,
Klaus

But terms of use of the youtube doesn't allow you to use the films in another way except youtube.com service.

there is no problems with server - you just need to make properly configuration, check develvr forum.
anyway, devalvr have a lot of functional restrictions, so my choice is krpano *cool*

But terms of use of the youtube doesn't allow you to use the films in another way except youtube.com service.

well, i've asked the owner of this video. anyway - there is no problem with embedding youtube video on any page in the internet, so why can't we embed it into panos? ;-)

I have been experimenting with flash video from youtube.

you need a safari browser

play video from youtube
goto WINDOW>Activity

you will see the video file source playing,click the file and save to desktop.

then add video hotspot to your pano with the link to the downloaded file

it's a Security Limitation from the Flashplayer,
access to data on external domains must be exlictily allowed by the "crossdomain.xml" file on other the domain,

e.g. here is the crossdomain.xml file from youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/crossdomain.xml :

Source code

1
2
3
4
<cross-domain-policy>
<allow-access-from domain="*.youtube.com"/>
<allow-access-from domain="*.ytimg.com"/>
</cross-domain-policy>
it only allows access for swf files which are on youtube itself,
(maybe you can ask youtube if they would add your domain here )


then add video hotspot to your pano with the link to the downloaded file
downloaded videos that are on your own domain are working of course,

best regards,
Klaus
