Currently vPedal are NOT visable to the MS IE DEv Channel  gamepad api but we are working with MS to hopefully fix this. < test page

We have found that to use the SDK with Chrome and FireFox you will need to install an extension:

Go to then choose the browser you are using



(for Chrome) IE Tab Multi

Please follow the install instructions provided by the installers of either of the extensions

You can now download install the vPedal API / SDK

Load a sound / video file into the webpage – click on the refresh button to load the

ie plug-in 3

ie plug-in

You then load the  “vPedalSDKIEExample.htm”  page and then click on the IPA icon ( on the right hand side of the browser ) which then reloads the page in an IE mode in Chrome.
