    2017 WW: One limit established in my Cybalounge web-world: 8-12 web-pages

    One limit established in my Cybalounge web-world:
    8-12 web-pages
    A web world gets enough memory from the Chrome browser to load about 8-12 web pages, depending on how big the pages are.  That is quite enough to support multiple web-walk presentations, if not all are loaded at the same time. 
    Tutorial walk
    Click image to enlarge
    • The posters are web pages.
    • The visitor can click on one and get an inworld inset to read.

    Use-testing starts to set load limits in Cybalounge.

    • In my world I put out a number of panels showing web-pages.  
    • Building in Cybalounge HTML page prim: Put the web in your web-world
    • I found that the world got erratic on editing at around 10-12 pages.  
    • Dieter (the designer) found that I had run out of space.
    • (The browser sets a space limit on a page.)
    • These are pages from my blog and each has several images.
    • Smaller pages would probably allow more pages.  
    • But this gives an idea of the limit for displaying web pages in this way.
    • The total now is 9 posters (counting my Bulletin Board at the entry point).
    • There is also a video panel, but that probably does not use much memory.
    • Cybalounge now has a better way to bring web pages into its web-worlds.
    • Another tutorial about that coming soon.

      2017 VIDEO: Convienient video capture in Windows 10--any window

       Convenient video capture in Windows 10
      --any window
      Windows 10 has a built-in screen capture feature originally intended for gamers, but available to capture video any window.  


      • Watch on YouTube
      • Presented again as a product of the screen capture method described here. 
      -
      • Open the window you want to capture.
      • Press the Win key+g
      • If you want to capture voice, be sure to click the microphone box,
      • Don't bother with the red record dot. Let the start panel go away.
      • When you are ready to record, press Win+Alt+r.  That starts the recording.
      • To stop recording, press Win+Alt+r again.  
      • The recording will be in mp4 in a folder called Captures in your Videos folder.
      • Cybalounge guest login.
      • This method is particularly useful in screen capture of web-worlds.  
      • Because OBS makes it hard to capture images using WebGL
