Cyberdog Software

The Internet Plug-in Viewer is an OpenDoc viewer that enables Cyberdog to view and interact with a variety of plug-ins now being used on the World Wide Web.

Plug-ins will be displayed either embedded in the Cyberdog Navigator window or in an open window that will be launched upon accessing a discrete plug-in-supported file, or embedded within other documents or applications such as DocBuilder documents.

How to Install Internet Plug-In Viewer Beta 5 for Cyberdog

Open the Cyberdog B5 Plug-in folder. There are two files. The files will need to be installed as follows:

1. Drag the Internet Plug-In Viewer file into your Cyberdog Libraries folder in the Editors folder in your System Folder.

2. Drag Internet Plug-In Adapter file to your OpenDoc Shell Plug-ins folder in your in your OpenDoc folder Editors folder in your System Folder. You will need to remove the file Internet Plug-In if you installed the Cyberdog Plug-in Viewer 1.0b3.

3. Create a folder called Internet Plug-ins in your Cyberdog Libraries folder in the Editors folder in the System folder. This folder is where you place the plug-ins that you want to enable with the Cyberdog web browser or any other container document. If you installed the Cyberdog Plug-in Viewer 1.0b3, you will need to rename the folder Netscape Plug-ins to Internet Plug-ins. If the folder is not in the Cyberdog Libraries folder already, please move it into the Cyberdog Libraries folder.

Location of Plug-ins folder

There are a few different configurations possible for the location of the folder in which you store your plug-ins and for the location of the plug-ins themselves.

1. The default place for plug-ins is in the folder named Internet Plug-ins in your Cyberdog Libraries folder.

2. Also, the Internet Plug-ins folder may contain aliases to real plug-ins stored somewhere else on your hard drive.

Installation of new plug-ins

1. Use the installer of the downloaded plug-in. If the installer allows you to direct your installation, install the plug-in into the Internet Plug-ins folder in your Cyberdog Libraries folder in your Editor folder in your System Folder. Check the installation to ensure that the actual plug-in is placed directly into the Internet Plug-ins folder.

2. If your download consists of a plug-in only or a folder containing the plug-in, place the plug-in in the Internet Plug-ins folder in your Cyberdog Libraries folder in your Editor folder in your System Folder.

Note: Each time you install new plug-ins into the Internet Plug-ins folder you will need to quit Cyberdog and re-launch to enable the new plug-in.

Memory

You will need to increase the preferred memory size on the Cyberdog application to 2500 K in order to use plug-ins. To increase the Cyberdog application memory, select the Cyberdog application in the Finder (Make sure that Cyberdog is not running currently) .Use the Get Info command in the File menu. Click in the Preferred Size memory box and type in 2500. Close this window and restart Cyberdog.

Known Incompatibilities

1. ViewMovie/ViewMovie XT - Prevents Quicktime movies from drawing. You should remove this from Internet Plug-ins folder.

2. If you are using the MovieStar and the Quicktime plug-ins, then the Quicktime plug-in will always get used. If you want the MovieStar plug-in to take effect, then you must place the Quicktime plug-in outside of the plug-in folder and lose its functionality.
