With the new Second Life Release Client 1.19.1, we get a chance to see a feature that will be implemented soon, HTML Pages displayed thru the media streaming texture.
As its kinda useful to some projects I'm doing , I rattled up some basic code last night to slideshow webpages with clickthru to their URL. Feel free to amend and add functionality if useful.
list URLs = ["http://www.leeds-art.ac.uk","http://www.annamorphic.co.uk","http://bbc.co.uk"]; //List of URLS
list Desc = ["Leeds College Website","Angrybeth's Page","BBC homepage"]; //List of URL descriptions - keep in order of List of URLs...
integer slidecount = 0;
llSetTimerEvent(20.0); //Change this for timing of sequence, obviously....
slides = llGetListLength(URLs);
if (slidecount == slides)
slidecount = 0;
SETURL = llList2String(URLs, slidecount);
URLDESC = llList2String(Desc,slidecount);
key who = llDetectedKey(0);
Obviously, stick this script inside the prim that is displaying the media texture...
One thing I do like is that llLoadURL - opens the inclient web-browser like the OnRez client. But at the moment it doesn't support Flash
But, when you load a webpage with Quicktime media embedded, it shows up on the Avatars HUD rather than on the webpage.
