Mental Canvas spatial drawings are so much more than just videos and images. That's why we built the web player - so everyone can experience the magic of spatial drawings from any device.
The web player enables viewers to interact with the scene as an immersive experience: to enter, travel through, and view the scene in countless different ways. The player can be viewed on any web-enabled device, including phones, tablets and computers.
By default, the web player is a full-page interactive scene, like this. You can embed it on any website with a simple iFrame, as shown below:
You can publish any scene you've created in Mental Canvas as an interactive web scene. Watch the short video to learn how it works.

Yes! The easiest way to add the interactive web player to your website is with an iframe. See below for more detail:
The web player is a full webpage with a unique URL. You can add the scene to your website with an iframe, which acts as a window displaying the original full-page scene (see above). Depending on how you’re building your website, you should be able to insert an iframe with a simple html code block. Contact us via support if you need assistance with this.
The web player is interactive, whereas the video is just an animation.
The web player enables viewers to not only go through the bookmark path, but also freely explore the content themselves. Viewers can use a mouse or touch screen to look around the scene and move through it as an immersive experience.
Currently, the web player cannot be customized by users.
We have worked with partners through the Mental Canvas Studio to customize the web player on a on a case-by-case basis.
You can copy the URL when you publish to web and share the link. Anyone, on any device (phone, tablet or computer) can open the link and explore your web scene.
Many users post a video clip of their work on social media and include a link to the web player, so their audience can explore the interactive version.
