Web Camera Embedded in Panorama

This is really cool, for those of you out there that have web camera’s. Basically click the image below to view a 360 degree panorama from Piccadilly Circus, you will then be asked by flash player if you want to ‘allow’ or ‘deny’ VR Web Design to use your webcam, click ‘allow’ and hey presto you should appear on the advertising billboard at London’s famous landmark ‘Piccadilly Circus’.

This is an example of embedding a webcam into a panorama

Please note its not the best panorama I’ve taken, it was a bit of a rush photoshop job as I was quite excited about the webcam, also picture of me is er… not the best I can look icon smile Web Camera Embedded in Panorama

    Hi Augusto,

    The example above was made using flash panorama player, but you should be able to do it with any player. You just need to have a plugin/component that you can embed into your panorama via XML, that will access the users webcam. I dont know any of hand (the example above was made with a plugin that ships with FPP), so you will have to google to find some http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&=&q=flash+webcam+plugin&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=#sclient=psy&hl=en&source=hp&q=flash+webcam+component&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.1,or.&fp=b5fc6a07c812d0bf alternatively just use FPP, hope this helps ?

    Best wishes,
