    Sensormob22, hello. Did you get it right with the video? I looked at one of your Sentsy panoramas - when you click on the information point, a video opens, and there is also a link to the video on Google Drive. If you need to embed videos from other video hosting, use the "Embed Link" field to embed videos using HTML to embed videos from other video hosting. Write me a personal message if you have additional questions or any video hosting is not supported yet. I try to help. thanks

    Good evening! I can't embed anything from other video hosting sites besides Youtube, so when I click on the marker, it uploads it to the hosting with this video. How to make a video player pop up like in YouTube? Thanks!

    Hello, I need to publish some panoramas with a soundtrack for my personal project.
    To do this, I need to get additional features, but do I need to buy them for each panorama separately, or once?

    Hello, Frank. Thank you for your question and for the great air panoramas you uploaded. Right now we have only Credit/Debit card option to pay for its services. We are using Stripe.com service to make payments and it should be safe and secure for customers. And you are right there should be more options to make payments. We will consider adding other payment options and do that as soon as we can.

The order is as follows: 1) upload to the site spherical panoramas from which you plan to create a virtual tour; 2) from the list of uploaded panoramas add each panorama to the virtual tour (Add to 3D tour link); 3) open the created virtual tour, edit the panorama order, select the main panorama, set transition points (tunnels).

How to animate a panoramic photo

Some users to whom I sent links to view panoramic photos could not at first figure out how to properly rotate the panorama around me, or at first did not realize that the wheel could zoom in or out the scene.  For such cases, the True Virtual Tours website has a Video Editor feature. In case of its application, before the user who opened the panorama by the link, the script of the "flyby" invented by you immediately starts. That is, the camera rotates or focuses as you yourself previously configured. Thus, you helped our customer to quickly examine the space around "himself" in a panoramic picture and at the same time encouraged him to think that he could perform the same actions with the help of the mouse buttons or the wheel.
