HTML5 based Viewers


  • Syborg Rooms exports virtual tours in flash and html5. Based on the users device the export shows the supported format.
  • VR5 Pano Viewer. You need to prepare the images to him (cube faces in 2 resolutions: 1024px & 480px. Can redirect to your standard player in case the browser is not on an iPad/iPhone. (Free for personal use.)
  • Pannellum Very lightweight HTML 5 open source viewer featuring embedding support, configuration using URL parameters, title and author information, multiresolution support, and full screen support among other things.
  • Leanorama. A free and open source viewer for Webkit browsers (Chrome, Safari, iPad, iPhone, Android 3+). Allows simple definition of virtual tours in JavaScript. Will stretch cube faces of any size to 1024*1024px - so larger panoramas probably won't make sense. Documentation and download on GitHub


  • Syborg Rooms Pro Version
  • KRPano is a Flash 9 & 10 & HTML5 based panorama viewer with a wide range of configuration options.
