Still some compatibility issues with Explorer 11 and above, like camera access denied, GIF files which cannot be saved directly, no user media capture, etc.

Previous Internet Explorer versions do not implement many modern Web features, including the key feature from this site which is WebGL for 3D graphic rendering.

Animation not playing? WebGL is not supported by Safari for PC. Please switch to another browser like Firefox or Chrome.

Video not playing? You should install QuickTime. If you get the message QTCF.dll missing, just go to Control Panel->Software and select QuicKTime Repair.
Be warned that on a PC the video will start playing only after it is fully downloaded...

Your browser: Default Android browser

This site should work nicely on most recent Android smartphones and tablets.
However, there are some severe bugs in the default Android browser:

  • It does not allow camera access (3D Photo Shoot app)
  • Snapshots are displayed upside down (3D Volume, 3D Photo Effects, Google Cam to Stereo apps)
  • When publishing, the thumbnail is upside down
  • Saving images using long touch is very slow.
  • It will crash on morphing "Convert to GIF"
If you experience problems with the default Android browser, try installing Chrome.

If you are coming here from the Facebook app, the browser does nor support WebGL... To overcome, on the facebook app select "Settings" "Always open links with external browser".
