I really would not have asked but one of my self appointed tasks is
helping people on #blender with questions about 2.4 and 2.5. This one
comes up a lot and I have never had a good answer.

Thanks for defending my question. Blender that can't show its own vids
is a bit like a web browser that can't show graphics. OK, I admit it.
I use Lynx. LOL.

I would still love to know why this is not yet implemented. Is it hard
to code? It is nice to have stories to tell.

Thanks again.
