I think the new Rev-Player is also able to open and display "Revonline" 
if doubleclicked INSIDE
the REV folder... Does at least here in my rev-enterprise folder...

So one could watch the videos etc... with the Rev-Player and save some 
of the (miserly, had to
take a look into my dictionary, and i think i like this word) granted 
minutes ;-)

If this is true for DreamCard (and i think it is) this MUST go into the 
docs in xtra-xtra-bold and
120 points!
