Phoenix Viewer "New Release" V

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Well shut my mouth, just when I thought the Phoenix team was finished with their 1.x viewer series a new one manage's to pop up. Most every thing is under the hood maintainence. So you should not notice anything major. Just a few tweaks here and there.


     Audio streams are still problematic on Linux, at least when using Ubuntu 10.10 but this is easily solved by copying and replacing the Bin > llplugin folder and the SLPlugin file from the version.

     Streaming video still does not function, but then again I have never had any luck getting Ubuntu to work with video stream's in SL.


     Regardless of these minor annoyance's, the Phoenix Viewer is still the best virtual world client software available for builders, content creator's.

     Now if we could just somehow get LL to dump QuickTime as the video stream format, and if the Phoenix team could also manage to implement Media on a Prim, there would be absolutely no need for Viewer2.
