[X3D-Public] Vivaty use Flash for Vivaty Scenes Lite

Catering for a much wider customer base is a smart move because the majority
of ppl out there will shy away from even seemingly simple installation
barriers. In my 2008 virtual worlds meeting some vendors reported around 80%
prospective customers dropped out at the installation stage. Isolating your
application to a true 3D only viewer is still not likely to be too
successful at this time. We are still a little way off the point where most
people have 3D simulation as a day-to-day desktop tool.
I wonder if it is possible to play a small X3D model url of my own using
this lite version. Anyone know? I went to the URL from the link below and it
worked fin on my Mac but could not see a way to load an X3D scene.

There be greater truth at the centre.
