X Play Gizmo 1.0 is now available at ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu in the
/Mosaic/misc/xplaygizmo directory.

X Play Gizmo is intended to be used as a Mosaic external viewer for sounds or
movies. It pops up a small control panel from which the user can start and
stop playing of the sound or movie (with the sound or movie player of his/her
choice). After installing X Play Gizmo, sound and movie files may be played
multiple times, and saved locally, without multiple retrievals.

See xplaygizmo.readme (in the distribution tar file) for instructions on
compiling, command-line flags, and using xplaygizmo with NCSA Mosaic for X.

Precompiled executables for Sun and SGI are available.
