Yes that does sound quite similar. I predict once page loading is fixed, this
will be the main mode of failure. I'm not sure how easy it will be to find a
public copy of the product, but I'll see if I can find one.

Yes, I would love for that to happen, and I've heard that there are plans in the
pipeline. It's not so bad - there is a fallback on linux using a simple video
object which works smoothly. Though that doesn't help for the annotations or the
point-and-click ui for setting up the analytics, so to setup the more clever
features of the device I have to go back to windows.
