HTML+TIME / XHTML+SMIL

Wikipedia page

About

HTML+TIME (Timed Interactive Multimedia Extensions) was a proposal by Microsoft for including animation and interactivity in HTML.

Downloads

No independent download, added to Internet Explorer in IE 5.5 and removed in IE 9. X-UA-Compatible does not appear to work

  • DLLs from Windows XP + Internet Explorer 6 are installable: mstime.dll for time2, datime.dll for time
  • IE11 on Windows 10 with DLLs installed and registry entry seems to have issues with transparency.
  • IE6 via Utilu on Windows 10 bolds some stuff weirdly.
  • Ad demos are apparently older HTML+TIME syntax and only seem to run on IE5.5. Can datime.dll be unblocked on Win10 and syntax added to ensure its inclusion into the page? How large would a rewrite into XHTML+SMIL be?

Examples

About

A proposal by Google for a standard 3D API for the Web. WebGL supplanted it. Google eventually wrote a WebGL version of O3D, but conversion is not automatic and the Beach demo was not converted

QuickTime VR

About

Wikipedia page

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • Uses the Windows system directory and is not portable.

Notes

  • The latest version available on apple.com requires Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Service Pack 1 MFC.
  • Both Apple Application Support and QuickTime are required. Registry entries point to their locations.
  • Registry files: apple.reg, quicktime.reg
  • Not all data in quicktime.reg is likely needed.
  • In Flashpoint, Basilisk is currently configured to disable QuickTime by default to avoid conflicts.
  • Some of the npqtplugin.dll files may interfere with other video/audio plugins or built-in behavior. It may make sense to have the QuickTime plugin available only when viewing a QuickTime curation. Basilisk's built-in MIME type configuration dialog can also be used to choose what plugins are used for different types of content.

Scratch

About

An online block-based virtual language, currently based upon Blockly, then previously Flash, and before that, Java (Squeak 2.8 for the offline editor). While it is possible to curate Scratch games in Flashpoint using converters and packagers, they are not in their original form.

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • Scratch 2 and 3 do not have Linux versions. However, it may be possible to run their respective Windows versions in Wine or use a web version.

Tulip 3D

Problems

It's unclear whether these two links reference the same plugin or two different plugins with Tulip in the name.

  • Exstream: 3D does not play unless the proper codec is available for the (usually? always?) .asf file. The codec in use appears to be 0x75 VoxWare Metasound. The downloads available for this codec do not appear to work directly. ffmpeg can process it but it sounds terrible. MPlayer, when given its binary codecs and the -ac voxware option, sounds excellent. However, the binary requires a file to be present in SysWOW64. We may need to reencode the .asf files via MPlayer (and then ffmpeg if MPlayer cannot output an .asf file).

Visviva Animation Player

An interactive animation player, available as a web plugin and a standalone player.

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • vaengine.dll seems to use both WSOCK32 and WININIT, but the primary download is via WSOCK32. Flashpoint currently does not support proxying WinSock.
  • DirectPlay is required.

Wildpockets

Downloads

Examples

WildTangent Web Driver

  • The SDK is usable from Java, JavaScript or VBScript.
  • Pages typically launch wthost.exe, which itself uses an ActiveX plugin
  • When producing a combined webdriver+Java config, be sure to only have one classpath entry.

Downloads

Problems Encountered

  • FlashpointProxy.dll needs to be attached to wthost.exe. (it's currently attached to webdriver.dll)
  • A newer version, recommended by WildTangent Discord, doesn't seem to support WinInet.
  • Most games will need MS Java.
  • Antiviruses hate anything WildTangent related.

Notes

This sample, linked from personal projects, reportedly has Flash <-> XVR interaction. This might not be supportable in Flashpoint unless Flash can be added to Flashpoint Secure Player or an NPAPI version of XVR is found.
