How to embed a stitched panorama picture? Thanks.

    I create a stitched panorama picture using http://www.clevr.com, you can see my picture here: http://www.clevr.com/pano/31484, I want to embed the picture in my blog like what I did for youtube video.

    Clevr does provide embed code for this:
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="450" height="350"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><param name="movie" value="http://s3.clevr.com/CleVR?xmldomain=http://www.clevr.com/&mov=31484"><embed src="http://s3.clevr.com/CleVR?xmldomain=http://www.clevr.com/&mov=31484" width="450" height="350" name="CleVR" allowScriptAccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></object><p style="width: 450px; text-align: center">Panorama of Wilcox Lake on CleVR.com</p>

    However, apparently it is not working:

    Can anyone tell me how to make it working? is it possible? If not (using Clevr), can anyone tell me some clue on how to do this?

    Thank you very much.

    The blog I need help with is visualstudiohouse.wordpress.com.

  2. Embed codes aren't directly allowed in wp.com blogs, for security reasons. You need to convert this code into a gigya shortcode:
    [gigya src="http://s3.clevr.com/CleVR?xmldomain=http://www.clevr.com/" flashvars="mov=31484" width="450" height="350" allowScriptAccess="always" ]
    Paste into HTML editor (or text widget). Dimensions can be changed.

    For more on this see here:

    Thank you very much for quick help, you said the width is adjustable, however, when I make it width as 800, it just increase the white border instead of the image itself. Is this because the original image is set to non-adjustable? or your magical code conversion can do some treak?

    Thanks.

  4. You're welcome.

    I didn't say the width is adjustable, I said the dimensions can be changed. The player has a fixed aspect ratio: if you change the width you must also change the height in proportion. But 800x622 will give you bad quality, and it can hardly fit in the theme you're using anyway.

  5. By the way, you're using a flexible-width theme, so what visitors will see depends on their screen resolution. The lower the resolution, the more your sidebar images will spill out of your sidebar. You need to select the thumbnail instead of the small option for the Flickr widget, and you need to change the code for the image in your text widget to this (so that the image will shrink with the sidebar):
    <a href="http://visualstudiohouse.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/0002-virtual-tour-53534-023.jpg"><img style="width:100%;" src="http://visualstudiohouse.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/0002-virtual-tour-53534-023.jpg" alt="ADD DESCRIPTION HERE" title="Listing" /></a>

    Thank you so much Pana for your further help. Besides Clevr, do you happen to know if there is any similar service that allows me to upload a panoramic picture and display it in wordpress? Clevr seems to be out of support for quite a long time, I really like their service but if they are out of market, I am just afraid of technical support issue.

  7. Google for panoramic pictures or panoramic images and you'll find other services.

    Yellowbird is also interesting - sample here:

    The first thing I want to comment is yellowbird has a domain name that is ridiculous long.

    Anyway, that's their preference.

    However it doesn't look like their service is open to public. I just couldn't find a place to upload my panoramic images and get code to embed it somewhere else. Did I miss it?

    Thank you very much for the yellow bird. :)

  9. No, Yellowbird isn't a free online app. The real answer to your question was my first paragraph only!

    OK, thank you. So you mean as you know there is no second free online app other than Clevr that is providing this service?

  11. No, I meant what I wrote: that you'll find other ones if you search. Example:
    http://www.dermandar.com/
