It would be nice to put our Photosynth in our websites without having to put a link, just as embed in browser just like a video.

LuckyMax, if you look underneath any synth or pano, you'll see an 'Embed' option that is exactly what you want and the HTML code that it gives you is used just as embed code for a video would be.

Yes, I saw it, and tried it but it doesn't work on my Wordpress blog.
Maybe Photosynth could do a partnership with Wordpress.
Just a suggestion anyway.

Yes, would be ideal if you could make the embed code the "old" embed code style that would work with Wordpress or through Vodpod.com.  That way the panoramas could be embedded into Wordpress pages (the most popular platform for most everyone's blogs across the web)

That's actually WordPress.com's fault for deleting iframe elements. 

If you run your own WordPress installation on your own server (from WordPress.org) you can embed whatever HTML you like, including photosynths and panoramas from Photosynth.net.

You'll find that if you paste the embed code into Blogger or a Tumblr video blog post that the Photosynth.net embed code works just fine. 

The same can be said for writing your own HTML pages and uploading them to something like DropBox.

I don't mean to say that WordPress.com is unimportant or that the Photosynth team shouldn't reach out to them (and Facebook), but it's really WordPress.com's problem for not implementing something like WebSandbox or Google Caja or the like which would safeguard their website and users from unpredictable content being embedded in iframes while while allowing us the freedom of posting whatever we want.

i find to way embed to website but haven't tutorial?
Greetings, duyhueic, 

In the Photosynth 2 Tech Preview, you will see five circular icons in the synth's information pane (where it shows the title, description, comments, etc.). The fifth icon from the left side is the embed code icon. When clicked it will give you HTML code to paste into the source code of a webpage.
Here is what the Photosynth 2 Tech Preview has to say about it. ( https://photosynth.net/preview/help/#FAQ-Share-3 )

"Sharing and Embedding

...
How can I embed a synth in my blog?

Display the synth you want to embed and click on the "embed" icon. Select the HTML code in the embed text box and copy it. Paste this copied HTML snippet into the blog or web page that you want to embed the synth into. (You will need to paste the HTML code into the editing view of your blog or page.)

Click "show options" to reveal additional refinements you can use to modify the HTML in the embed text box. Be sure to copy the HTML after you have finished updating the options."
"Synth size: Specifies the embedded synth's size in pixels (width by height).

Delay load: Delays loading the synth until the user explicitly clicks on the synth to load it.

Automatically play: Tells the synth to start playing automatically once it loads.

Show caption underneath: Displays the title, creator, and description of the synth below the synth itself.

Show highlights: Displays any highlights you have created for your synth.

Show Photosynth teaser: Briefly displays a small teaser about Photosynth."
Here is how Bing Translator automatically translates that:

"Chia sẻ và nhúng

The Photosynth iframes do not offer a function to go fullscreen or to go to the page on photosynth.net directly. This makes small iframes pretty pointless.

Where is "show options"? I do not see it.
What is the attribute to show the caption? I hope that it will contain a link to the full size panorama.
Metamprove, I wonder where you are embedding your panoramas and what devices you are trying to view them on.

On laptop and desktop computers which have Silverlight installed, you should definitely get a 'Fullscreen' icon for both photosynths and panoramas. The Silverlight viewer will also give you two links for any original photosynth or stitched panorama: 
1) To the Photosynth homepage
2) To the view page of that synth or pano, where you can read comments and see the link to the author's Photosynth.net profile.
On mobile devices, when you click on an original photosynth, you'll be told that viewing original synths requires Silverlight, which your mobile browser can't install.

Also, on mobile devices, when you click on an embedded panorama or Tech Preview photosynth, you should be sent to the Photosynth view page for that pano or synth and get the HTML5 pano viewer or the WebGL Tech Preview synth viewer. 

The mobile page for panos always loads full browser window on my devices and you'll have an option to view it in your mobile app, where you should see the author of the pano and more of their work from their Photosynth.net profile.

For Tech Preview synths, you can click the Photosynth 2 logo in the upper left corner of the synth to visit its view page on Photosynth.net, where you can see the synth author's profile page link and find more of their work or read other users comments and add your own.
Also, Metamprove, you asked where the 'show options' menu is.

As stated above, that only applies to getting embed code for Tech Preview synths (Photosynth 2 photosynths).
Try browsing any of the content uploaded to the Photosynth 2 beta site here: https://photosynth.net/preview/
Photosynth.net is home to 3 types of photographic constructs: 

1) Original photosynths https://photosynth.net/explore.aspx?filter=DateDescending&type=Synth
(created with the original Photosynth desktop application for Windows desktop + viewed with the D3D Photosynth or Silverlight web browser plugins on laptops + desktops)
Up to 2,000 photos + camera locations.

2) Stitched panoramas https://photosynth.net/explore.aspx?filter=DateDescending&type=Panorama
(created with Microsoft ICE on Windows laptops + desktops, Adobe Photoshop, Windows 8.1's Camera app, or Photosynth's mobile panorama apps + viewed on laptops + desktops in the Silverlight viewer or on mobile devices in the incomplete HTML5 pano viewer)
These are a sphere of photography from 1 location.

3) Photosynth 2 photosynths https://photosynth.net/preview/?explore=recent_synths
(created with the Photosynth 2 beta website + viewed in the WebGL viewer)
These come in 4 varieties: spins, walks, walls, + pans.
