Compatibility notes
  • Blackberry
    • Incompatibility with older AVS sets. Clients may need to re-upload AVS sets to allow playback.
  • General
    • Browser side scaling may cause UI and images to become blurry as user zooms into page. UI formatting may also display incorrectly depending upon zoom. This will carry over to full screen.
    • Due to size limitation on mobile devices the Mixed Media Viewer uses slide gesture to swap frames in embedded image sets instead of tapping the embedded swatches component. The component is there as a visual indicator.
    • In Internet Explorer browsers and some touch devices, full screen mode does not occupy entire device screen. Instead, it resizes application to the size of the browser window.
    • The Close button does not work iOS 8.0 and 8.1 but no longer occurs in iOS 8.2
  • Galaxy SIII
    • Memory leak seen with Zoom and eCatalog HTML5 viewers. Repeated navigation through frames may cause browser to crash.
    • Double tap on viewer may cause whole page to zoom instead of just viewer with browser side scaling enabled.
  • Galaxy S4
    • Device detected as tablet in portrait mode with Full Screen checked in browser settings.
  • Galaxy Nexus
    • Double tap on viewer may cause whole page to zoom instead of just viewer with browser side scaling enabled.
  • Galaxy Nexus 10 and Galaxy Tablet
    • eCatalog showing incorrect page spread with portrait and landscape orientations.
  • HTC Mobile Devices
    • HTC mobile devices our findings show that inability to disable native pinch-zoom is a "feature" of HTC UI wrapper (HTC Sense). This may cause whole page to zoom when using "pinch to zoom" gesture on viewer. Suggest using double-tap instead.
    • Image map icons may overlap if image maps are small and close together.
  • HTML5 Video
    • Internet Explorer 9: custom poster images do not display.
    • IntialBitRate modifier is only supported with software HLS and Flash HDS playback. It does not work when playback is using the native player.
    • OGG and WebM progressive playback not supported at this time.
    • Browser scaling can cause the video player to display at an incorrect size (include Windows OS control panel Display settings)
    • Video seek using HLS streaming on Safari may be inconsistent.
  • Internet Explorer
    • Quirks mode is not supported at this time.
    • Compatibility mode is not supported at this time.

    • iPhone 6+ phones are detected as tablets by the viewers.
  • Safari
    • Safari 6.1 or later: Internet Plug-ins settings may prevent Flash video playback.
    • Video "seek" using HLS streaming on Safari may be inconsistent.
    • Unable to seek to end of video on Safari 6 using HLS streaming.
Known issues and restrictions
  • The Image Serving modifiers from iscommands are not added to the req=set request by design. Modifiers that only affect image display work fine. Modifiers affecting size must be used in a complex asset. For example,
    https://s7d9.scene7.com/s7viewers/html5/BasicZoomViewer.html?asset= {Scene7SharedAssets/Backpack_B?extendn=0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5}

  • iPhone4

    • On IE 10 and older full screen mode does not occupy entire screen, instead it just resizes application to the size of the browser window.

Known issues and restrictions
  • All components
    • In versions 2.7.2 and earlier some components were added to the DOM using insertBefore() API. As a result, such components would put themselves in the bottom of the stacking order, no matter when component instance is created relative to other components. With the 2.8.1 release all components are using appendChild() API now, which means that the component stacking order would match the order of instance creation.
    • Using iscommand modifier to set image alpha channel format is not supported. Use component FMT parameter instead.
    • CSS transform property is not supported at this time.
  • Touch devices
    • Pinch gesture on touch devices does not generate a zoom event
  • Container
    • Border, padding and margins on the container is not supported. Adobe suggests adding style elements to parent DIV.
    • Need to explicitly set the container size or the components may be sized correctly.
  • Print component
    • Due to browser limitations, in Internet Explorer 9, the print component may not scale the content properly on the paper.
  • IconEffect component
    • IconEffect generates a script error on Internet Explorer if autohide is disabled (set to 0 ).
  • ImageMapEffect component
    • Delay with repositioning icon when panning image on view component.
  • MediaSet component
    • Inline assets request same encoding as on the URL.
  • NavigationView component
    • Currently the component does not support resize.
  • PageScrubber component
    • On iPhone 5, when the PageScrubber bubble is set to text, it is displaying artifacts when sliding the button along the track. Using -webkit-background-clip: content; in the style works around the issue.
  • SpinView component
    • SpinView sometimes appears to freeze after swipe gesture and rotating the device while image is spinning.
  • Swatches component
    • When selecting an out of bounds swatch, 2 highlights are shown.
    • Auto scrolling with selectSwatch() method working incorrectly.
