udStream Browser: Guide to Getting Started

Getting Started with udStream - Browser

udStream can run in a Browser with the ability to view hosted Projects and already-converted .uds models anywhere in the world, on any machine.
We currently support Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox.

The browser is located at https://udstream.euclideon.com/client/

Before beginning check the following:

  1. You will need a udStream account. These are free to create, and can be created in the Browser app interface of udStream itself, or at this link: https://udstream.euclideon.com. Select 'Register', then follow the instructions to create your account.
  2. Update to the latest version of your Web browser. To do this, in your browser navigate to the Settings menu, then Update.
  3. Navigate to https://udstream.euclideon.com/client/
  4. If you are unable to login, try again in an Incognito or Private window of your browser.
  1. Once the interface loads, login with your existing udStream account.
  2. The interface, menu's and instructions are identical to udStream desktop apps. For help, visit the Quick Start Guide for udStream.

Browser client limitations

One constraint is that you can only view models that are hosted in the Cloud – the browser is not able to load local files. We have included the standard cloud hosted demonstration models in the projects drop down menu the same as the Desktop version.

Browser Client is intended primarily as a visualizing tool and not for conversion into UDS format. However, Convert DOES work, although again only for cloud hosted datasets – and you can only write to specific destination and temporary areas within the browser sandbox – there is no way to get the converted data out.

Special concerns for cloud hosted models

If you wish to load your own UDS models in the Browser Client environment then you need to understand this next important bit.

Due to browser and cloud hosting security settings, streaming models in the browser requires a HTTPS server with a valid certificate and support for CORS, 206 Partial Requests and doesn’t block referrer linking (hotlinking). The required allowed methods are HEAD, GET & OPTIONS and the required headers are Content-Length, Content-Type & Range. Your IT department will be able to provide this. Microsoft Azure, Alibaba AliCloud (OSS) and Amazon AWS (S3) are our recommended storage providers.
