NET TOOB, which went on the market in 1995, enables computer users to view videos prepared in different formats like MPEG-1, QuickTime and Video for Windows.
NET TOOB enables consumers to use the same software video player, to view most video types out there on the Web.
But Dougherty said the installation on a computer of either Microsoft Media Player, which is included in every copy of Windows, or Microsoft Internet Explorer, interferes with the performance of NET TOOB software already installed on the computer.
He said the Microsoft products effectively "replace" NET TOOB as a video player.
