|Subject:||Re: Slow image download in PTViewer/IE|
I believe I've located the problem I've been having with
slow downloads in *Windows* IE 5.0:
I had previously removed the 'psize' param in the HTML
because I was getting 'crud' at the bottom of my panos.
When I put this parameter back into the HTML, my download
speed on IE 5 became very comaprable to NC 4.7
Can you verify this, please?
I hope that this is not a 'required' param, because I really don't
want to take the time to determine the file size for each pano.
BTW, I still can't get my panos cached with windows IE 5.0
Will you be able to fix this in PTViewer 1.0?
