This window is used to add media (a web page) to a prim face. It is accessed from the Edit floater, Texture tab.


Media Settings Window

This tab deals with general settings of the media.

  • Home Page: Specify the URL of the web page to display. Once loaded, the web page will be shown in the preview window below.
  • Current Page: Displays the current web page that the media was set to, before editing began.
  • Reset: Resets the current URL of the media face to the home page given above. Resetting affects all Residents who are viewing the media.
  • Auto Loop: Replays media automatically when it finishes playing. Only applicable for certain media types (some videos, etc.).
  • Autozoom: If this is enabled, anyone who clicks the media prim will have their camera automatically zoomed onto it.
  • Auto Play Media: If enabled, the web page will automatically display for all residents, unless they have disabled auto-play in their viewers.
  • Auto Scale Media on Face of Object: If this is enabled, the web page will be scaled to fit the prim face automatically. Disable this if you wish to scale manually - in which case, supply the values in the fields below.

    You can use wildcards with asterisks (*) to specify domains. For example, ** allows and to be visited, but not The media face's Home Page set in Media Settings - General needs to match the access list or it won't load.
