It's a nice idea, but it will only work with cubics(spherical), it will only work if the VR was saved correctly. It would be nice if Apple worked this concept into their QTVR plugin in a way that would work with all QTVR files. I'm not going to change my hundreds of QTVR's to work with this.

Works great: VR panos were always impressive, now they're fast too!

To the person wondering about having to quit ANY browser, if you don't there's a risk of crashing the browser. This is just safe plug-in install procedure.

The installer tells me to quit ANY browser before it will work, but then tells me that it will only work in Safari. Does this sound strange to anyone?

That sounds better.


By the way, thank you for removing the change log file from the disk image. Now safari automatically opens the installer.

Are you complaining? Something that is an obvious betterment to the Mac community, not to mention free and you still complain?

Mac users sure can be whiners...

No I'm not complaining. I just think it's a bit strange to update this twice a week. Why don't they wait a few days and skip a few updates. So again, I didn't mean that review as a complaint, because I like this plugin a lot.

Sometimes a developer can't just skip a few updates and then release the lot, because the issue only came to light when someone tested it on their own setup.

I'm a sucker for every update to every application - I've got uninstalled updates everywhere - but I still download them. I know I have a problem, not the developers who release so generously.

This sure runs smooth. Hopefully this format will become more popular in the future.

Cool!
Brian sure knows what he's doing. :-)

Two things though:

1. Would be even cooler if the icons for zooming in/out etc. was less jagged.

2. Would be nice if the arrow cursor disappeared when one clicks and holds to move the panorama.
