webVR fails on Microsoft Edge

With a new Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset, one of the first things I tried was visiting 360Cities on the Edge browser; and I got a big disappointment. Same on Roundme.com and the krpano webVR demo page: no immersive image, just a black rectangle.


After selecting webVR mode one goes through these steps: MS portal asks permission to enable webVR; krpano displays hmd setup screen; MS portal asks permission to "go fullscreen"; then black screen. Double clicking the black screen brings up the "exit VR" widget which takes you back to 2D page.

Is this a known problem?

Does anyone have a work-around?

I have of course filed a complaint with Microsoft.

Hi,

no, this is no known problem, I have also a Windows Mixed Reality headset and it is working very fine! (although I'm testing only with krpano itself and not with any hosting-platforms).

Best regards,
Klaus

Sorry, Klaus, I was wrong. Edge displays webVR material just fine, krpano panos better in fact than any other browser I have used. No trace of shimmer, and quite crisp, I think due to foveated rendering.

My problem was that I am running WMR on a laptop, which like all laptops has Intel Integrated Graphics, and also a strong nVidia GPU. Microsoft apps, including Edge, use the IIG by default. Switching Edge to the GPU with nVidia Control Panel brought webVR to life.
