you can't view the stream because its for windows media player 9 only, after all why would a Mac user want to look at a piece of Windows Software/hardware anyway, nice one Newtek

One of the newer VT features is it's streaming ability into Windows Media 9 format, so I believe that's why they chose to stream that way. Also, since VT is a PC only program, the target was really for those who would be interested in using it.

It still would be very cool if everyone could experience the show, so for that, I completely understand and apologize. Siggraph's just around the corner and I'm sure that will be a big consideration! (please don't quote me on that though, cuz I really like my job) ;)

A good response, maybe the issue is whether there should be a version of Windows media player 9 for Mac OS X. Personally I was curious as to what VT3 was all about, I guess I'll not bother now.

I guess they dont want people to buy pc's with the VT if they already have a Mac.
this is the kind of thing that has gone on for years at NT...great softwave but that is as far as it goes
