One of the things that I meant to comment about which might really be
appropriate probably for the folks at Berkeley is an mpeg_player with
similar controls to audiotool. I know, this has nothing to do with
mosaic but I thought I'd pass this thought to this distribution.

Maybe something like this already exist and I am not aware.

As far as a slide show is concerned, I second the motion to have something
like this capability

How can I observe this with 2.0Pre3?

}This all sounds great!  New stuff in 2.0pre3 and later include the
}ability to pull down images, sounds, etc. without having the display
}go out to lunch, scrolling directives, etc.
