Well, sort of...

The Laurie Anderson (and some other Voyager titles) seems to play at least
in part on Mac OS 9 (classic)... Try booting your machine in the legacy
operating system... The problem with some Voyager stuff is that it was
intended for use with HyperCard (pre-Web hyperlinking software).

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
