Is there a way to add a video frame to to these panels?

It's not possible to use any local video files as far as I know, although there might be undocumented features to do it. There is a YouTube player class however, take a look at panorama/layout/youtube_player.vxml_c and panorama/scripts/youtube_player.vjs_c inside \tools\steamvr_environments\game\steamtours\pak01_dir.vpk Rectus (talk) 19:26, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Is there a way to launch external executables from a custom panel?

This would not be hosted/submitted to the Workshop. We're looking for a way to create a standalone/local VR Home with panels to launch standalone VR apps located on the local machine. Alternatively, is there a way to link the panel to launch apps indexed in the playlist tool?

There doesn't seem to be any interfaces for it. The only thing that seems to be possible is launching Steam applications by app ID using VRUtils.LaunchSteamApp() from Panorama. Rectus (talk) 08:41, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
