Plugin Attributes

  • videourl
    • The url of the video file.
      Note - the video url must be always relative to the main krpano swf file!
    • The video can be in any video format that is supported by the Flashplayer. See here for information about all supported video formats:
    • Transparent videos with alpha-channel are possible.
  • pausedonstart   (optionally)
    • Should the video be paused at the start.
    • true or false, default=false
  • loop   (optionally)
    • Should the video loop or stop at end.
    • true or false, default=false

    • Volume of video sound.
    • 0.0 - 1.0, default=1.0
  • directionalsound   (optionally)
    • Use directional 3D sound when the video is played as hotspot.
    • true or false, default=true
  • range   (optionally)
    • Range of the directional sound, distance of the viewing look direction to the sound position, the sound volume will fall off withhin this distance from volume to outofrangevolume.
  • range   (optionally)
    • The 'falloff' factor, defines the volume falloff curve (e.g. ~0.01 to ~10.0), default=1.0.
  • range   (optionally)
    • Out of range volume, default=0.0.
  • buffertime   (optionally)
    • The time in seconds that the video should be preloaded/buffered before starting to play, default=0.1 (=Flashplayer default).
  • updateeveryframe   (optionally)
    • An advanced setting for special performance optimizations - use with care!
    • It has only an effect when the video is played as distorted hotspot!
    • true or false, default=false
      The video frame will be only refreshed/updated when flash reports "there is a new frame", this reduces the cpu load but in situations where the Flashplayer has much work to do, this can cause frame skipping (e.g. while moving in the pano).

    • Will be called when the video was played completely.
    • Happens only when "loop" is set to "false".
