Windows 98 or later
The browser version required is Internet Explorer 4.0 or
later, or Netscape 6.0 or later.
- Pentium 166MHz or later
- 64MB RAM memory
- 1MB Video
The viewer works in all desktop color modes: 15, 16, 24 and 32 bpp modes.To view a high quality image of 5000x2500
pixels, only 64 MB of RAM are required.
DevalVR stores the
images into RAM memory in 24 bpp color mode. For this reason, the RAM
memory required depends of the panorama image size. The required amount
of RAM memory will be: imageWidth x imageHeight x 3 (24 bits = 3
bytes) + ~12 MBytes (memory for the viewer).
does not require any external library like DirectX or OpenGL. It works in
all Windows operating systems 98/NT/Me/2000/XP.
The viewer does
not require VRAM memory and is not necessary that the system has a 3D
accelerated graphics card. Only a video card with 1 MB of
VRAM is necessary.

use these files to configure your web pages: www.devalvr.com/instalacion/detectvr.zip
include only two lines in your HTML files to show the viewer window:
is the syntax of writecode
file2, file3, file4, file5, width, height);
file1 = file for
file for DevalVR
file3 = file for Java (PTViewer or Pureplayer,
see "detectvr.js" file to use Pureplayer)
file4 = file for
file5 = file for SPI-V
width = horizontal size of viewer
window, in pixels or percentage
height = vertical size of
viewer window, in pixels or percentage
If you want to use
only QT and DevalVR viewers and specify a viewer size, set all filenames
to "", for example:
For width or height parameters a pixel size or percentage can
be used. If a negative value is defined, this means "browser 100%"
- "value in pixels".
For example, to define a viewer window of width=100% and height=100% -

programmers, see the content of "detectvr.js" file to learn how to
code to control the plugin from web page or from some ActiveX container
programs like Macromedia Director, Macromedia Authorware, Microsoft
This is the basic code to
view QTVR movies with the DevalVR plugin:
When the web page
opens, select the "View" menu in your browser and the "Source code" option
to view the HTML code. You can copy this HTML code to create your pages
with DevalVR. The code necessary to configure the plugin is between the
<OBJECT> and </OBJECT> tags (it inclusives).
is the HTML code
configurate the plugin:
Change the file name in the two parameters "src" to set the movie file name. The
"src" parameter into OBJECT tags sets the file name for Internet
Explorer. The "src" parameter into EMBED tags sets the file name for
Netscape and compatible browsers.
"src" parameter can be a relative url like "../movies/sample.mov" or "sample.mov", or can be a full path beginning by
"http://", like for example "http://www.domain-name.com/movies/sample.mov
must be written twice. Once for Internet Explorer and compatible browsers,
behind OBJECT tag, and again for Netscape and compatible
browsers, within EMBED tag.
This is the syntax
to set a parameter for Internet explorer browsers:
<PARAM NAME="parameter_name" VALUE="parameter_value">
This is the syntax
to set a parameter for Netscape/Firefox/Opera browsers:
HTML code example
with several parameters:

The plugin and the
standalone player has the same control keys:
SHIFT: Increments zoom
LEFT CONTROL: Decrements zoom
SHIFT: Show telescope
ARROW KEYS: Tilt and pan rotation.
[*]: Set the
zoom to its initial value.
