Select keyboard keys 1, 2, 3, or 4 to display video thumbnails in 1, 2,
3 or 4 columns.

1. Setup the mailcap for shared browser :

MailcapSetup.py -m "application/x-ag-shared-browser" -e "C:\Documents and
Settings\All User s\Application
Data\AccessGrid\applications\SharedBrowser\SharedBrowser.py" --description
"This is the shared browser" --nametemplate "sharedbrowser"

Then the VenueClient will invoke a pthyon applicatoin to wrap the IE and
can browse webpage

2. Setup the mailcap for shared presentation :

MailcapSetup.py -m "application/x-ag-shared-presentation" -e "C:\Documents
and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\AccessGrid\applications\SharedPresentation\SharedPresentation.py" - -de
scription "This is the shared Presentation" --nametemplate

Edit C:\Documents and Settings\<username{\Application

And put -a before %s for application/x-ag-shared-presentation

Then the VenueClient will invoke a shared application controller and
call the powerpoint.

(This is because I have found that the SharedPresentation.py need the -a
parameter to feed the applicaton url but the MailcapSetup.py refuse to
accept it)..
