XSwallow is a generic plugin for netscape 3 and netscape 4 that allows any X program or command line utility to handle embedded mimetypes in webpages, e.g vrml/mpeg/wav etc.
So a mime type like vrml for which there does not exist, as of the moment, a plugin for linux netscape can be viewed inline to netscape using any ordinary vrml viewers such as vrweb/liquid reality. It also has all the abilities of mimeplugin (ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/www/plugins/) by Carl Shimer (harshaw@WPI.EDU) & Michael J Long (firstname.lastname@example.org) on which XSwallow is based and can be therefore be used to handle mimetypes that are handled by programs with no graphical interface, audio formats for example.
For installation follow these steps:
put xswallow.conf in ~/.netscape put xswallow.so in ~/.netscape/plugins get vrweb and liquid reality and install put dispatch-vrml-c in your path and edit it for your site it is based on (and is a graphical version of)
tags plugin for for your liquid reality put xswallow
