Java should be enabled in the majority of browsers - QT needs a plug-in

It spins by default at a selectable rate.

I guess it's the way you're using the mouse? try describing a circle
with the mouse - not left to right but round and round like a clock face
around the image.

also try the demo ones on the duckware site - they're much smaller and
also illustrate the scripting you can do that allows for one image
space, several images - (color ways, models etc - click the icons to the
right of the main image)
