RevWeb, IE and saving data

Hi Mike,

We already offer the standalone. But the idea of the user being able to 
access their videos directly through a browser is quite appealing, given 
that many people spend a lot (if not most) of their time in a browser 
these days.

Some of our users could be receiving videos sent to them throughout any 
given day, so it is convenient if they can leave the revlet open in a 
browser tab and simply retrieve, then view those videos, without having 
to leave their browser.

If it wasn't for the challenges presented both by the revlet plugin 
installation process and that nasty warning box, this concept is killer 
for convenience and simplicity.

Richard
