Tested on SheepShaver for MacOSX w/MacOS 9.0.4 on iMac Core2Duo 3 GHz. Works properly but sound is choppy, even after full installation and giving lot of memory to the browser.

Despite the fact that this software is mostly common HTML and multimedia files, it seems being NOT compatible with newer systems (OS & browsers).
