I keep getting an error that it's "unable to locate video"

the stars.flv is in the same directory as all of the other files.

Runs fine locally but not on my website.

Any ideas?

it's the typical IIS web server problem,

the MIME type for ".flv" was not set and the server doesn't deliver the file,

it's the same problem like ".license" for the krpano license file,
see here for some details:

try opening the video direct to see the problem:

you will see:


The page cannot be found
The page you are requesting cannot be served due to the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) map policy that is configured on the Web server. The page you requested has a file name extension that is not recognised, and is therefore not allowed. Please try the following:
  • Contact the Web site administrator to alert them that they have not enabled the necessary file extensions through their MIME map policy.
HTTP Error 404.3 - File or directory not found: MIME map policy prevents this request.

  • Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 404.
  • Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled Working with MIME Types, How to Enable Web Service Extensions, and About Custom Error Messages.

a quick solution could be to "rename" the video from "stars.flv" to "stars.xml" for example
changing the MIME settings would be better, but I don't know how to do that...

best regards,

Are there any details on the variables to use in the .xml file?

My stars pano was with a 8mm fisheye pointing straight up, so the axis is weird

My test walk this morning was with the 8mm fisheye, but I couldn't figure out how to stop the viewer from rotating past the edge of the lens

but I couldn't figure out how to stop the viewer from rotating past the edge of the lens
this could be done by manually setting the viewing limit,

Source code

<view limitview="range"

here is the video with these settings:….vlookatmax=+70

best regards,

Thanks Klaus!

Here are 2 new tests, stationary with a tripod.

I constrained the video to 480x320 so that it's not as pixelated.

video pano to demonstrate fulldome movies

We just finished an interesting application of video panorama, we are using it to show people what our FullDome movie "Crossing Worlds" is like to those who have not visited a FullDome theater. We just showed the film at DomeFest and did a short presentation on how to create video panoramas w/ KR Pano for the other Dome Theaters and film makers at the festival. There is a big need for this because dome folks often show a "dome master" (fisheye projection) image that is hard for the public to read.

Take a look

Hi gregdowning,

Seems to be absolutely fantastic.... My internet connection is a bit slow and I see it frame by frame.... only one remark; why to not use the krpano fisheye projection to display this movie? It would be better displayed than with normal do not think so?

Any way, you are making an incredible job. Chapeau *attention* *thumbsup*

how did you fix the nadir in the video?? or is just the dome part video... *confused*

very very nice, but a bit HEAVY on the connection.


tuur *thumbsup*

Sorry to hear about the connection issues. We have only have tested in on high bandwidth in the US, our servers are in LA so that may be part of the problem. How bad is the streaming? It is a 125MB file but I figured over a 5 minute movie it should be no problem.

It is a regular still pano on the bottom half, then we comped the movie in. We added some lighting to the seating using the movie as a source in the comp.

A fisheye option is a good idea, I should add it to the contextual menu. Mainly though we want a interactive rectilinear view, we have a fisheye render (in fulldome they call this a domemaster) on our vimeo site but it is really hard to see the subtle movement in it.

Nice work Greg! When one has seen the piece in a dome (as I have) it is a somewhat different experience I guess to see it as a rectilinear video pano.

I have the same problem with the bandwidth over here, but will check it from work tomorrow.
