I hate the distortion that is produced by showing a pano in a letterbox
format unless the FOV is drastically reduced.
Fiero Deval has written a script to control the aspect ratio and max size at
which a pano will be displayed.
It is called detectVR.js
It first checks the available plugins and then serves up the pano as
Devalvr, QT, Flash or Java.
You can set full screen *with* a size limit (for viewers with a >19" screen)
AND it will set a limit to the aspect ratio of the pano. Very Cool!
You can check this out on my website www.sphericalpanoramas.com, where most
thumbnails already call the correct devalvr.js to limit the aspect ratio.
You can check this even on a non-widescreen monitor by just squeezing the
full sized pano window to a letterbox.
