Tour embedding solutionsHello,
There were several attempts trying to embed tours into external website. Until now 2 methods were proposed.
First one - was to use Flash VR (swf) publishing. The bad thing about this approach was that the whole tour has to be loaded before starting first scene. I proposed a solution which offered custom preloader, which could be found hehe: http://www.optitecha.lt/file/view/10/8. Still the problem of large file remained.
Another - was to use Flash VR (html) publishing along with iframes. While the html mode offers lots of advantages, using iframes is not very attractive and not allways possible as some external sites or CMS components wants .swf for embed and nothing more.
Togeather with pixelator we managed to find a way to the third approach. Using Flash VR (html) mode for publishing mode with embeding .swf (twviewer.swf) file. It was not possible, because .html file has critical variable for twviewer.swf - configuration file name. So, if someone was embedding twviewer.swf directly - the configuration file name by default was config_essimatour.bin, viewer couldn't load it and the loading stopped.
Therefore the simple solution is to rename your tour configuration file (with .bin extension) to config_essimatour.bin. That's all - now you may enjoy advantages of both approaches.
