Audio after entering a hotspot


I would like to create a virtual tour that could automatically play an audioguide (mp3/ogg) after clicking on a hotspot.

I can create a vtour using pictures and linking them by hotspots (via the editor).

But how can I autoplay an audioguiode?

What I would like to create is something similar to that:

The only thing I managed to do (unsuccessfully) for the moment is that:

1) Create a simple working vtour (two pictures linked by hotspots with the editor)

2) in tour.xml I did as follows:

a) add: <plugin name="soundinterface"

b) modified: <hotspot name="spot1" url="skin/vtourskin_hotspot.png" ath="-162.027" atv="13.785" linkedscene="scene_foto" onclick="playsound(auto,sounds/audio.mp3);"

But when I click on the hotspot I get "ERROR: soundinterface - loading of /sounds/audio.mp3 failed!"

The audio.mp3 file is in the "sounds" directory

What's wrong with that?

Thanks for your help :-)

I'm on ipad right now but maybe first take the slash out of the rootpath in the plugin.
When that doesn't work i would try putting there ../
Not sure though, not on desktop now.

Hello Tuur,

yes it was the / on rootpath; by removing it I could hear the audio. Thanks!

But why linkedscene="scene_foto" in the hotspot stuff does not work?

When I click on the spot I can only hear the audio, but I'm not taken to the scene I'm supposed to go...

Maybe is there another way to automatically play a specific audiofile whenever you get into the next scene in a vtour?

Thanks in advance for your help! *smile*

Thanks I'm almost there... *unsure*

is there a chance to put an audio control so a user can silence/stop the audio?

How can the audio be stopped when you move to another position? I tried to put onout="stopallsounds();" both on <hotspot> and <scene name> but it does not stop, moreover if you turn back a new audio is played overlapped to the first one...

I'm sorry to bother you with such a stupid question; I tried to search over the forum but I completely lost in tens of codes I can't understand where to put... *unsure*

Will you be so kind to help me? *g*

Autoplay sound in Mobile Devices

Hi Tuur

I have a similar question - autoplay sound in mobile devices.

I have this code

onstart="webvr.resetSensor(4.428); playsound(audioI,'audios/I.wav|audios/I.ogg', 1); "

it works fine on my desktop pc. But when i tried it on my smartphone, sometimes it starts without tapping the screen and sometimes it does not start. Any solution for this?
