I know this is an old post but I recently experimented with this and got to a decent working version. Please see video

You have to use Lithium ebook reader, the same file when opened in other reader doesnt behave the same way.

Would you mind sharing how you created the epub file? What files/code need to go into the folder to make this work? Is the epub format a simple way of getting krpano tours to work on local computer desktops without the error messages you get in a browser?

Many thanks!!

I've been doing this for some time. I gave a talk about this at the IVRPA conference in Prague in 2016. The EPUB FXL (fixed layout) format is entirely standards-based HTML/CSS/JS, so it's quite possible to crack open one of these files and add your own code. But it is FAR, FAR easier to use Adobe InDesign and the add-on CircularFLO, from circularflo.com.

I've worked with this developer to enable arbitrary web code embedding in fixed-layout EPUBs generated with InDesign and CircularFLO, specifically so I can create EPUB ebooks with embedded 360 tours. This even works for split-screen mobile views for Google Cardboard and similar headsets!
