We developed a new 3D content browser based on Croquet that has a TVML processing engine and peer-to-peer network connectivity. Croquet can create a collaborative 3D world for many users. Users can share their knowledge as virtual 3D objects with information in virtual spaces. TVML is a scripting language for generating TV-like content, and it can control virtual 3D character's behaviors and camera positions. Croquet and TVML are very powerful tools for creating virtual 3D content. However, both systems lack important functions for virtual 3D content browsers using the Internet. The usual Croquet does not have easy-to-use functions for authoring 3D characters' behaviors. A usual TVML player also does not have functions for sharing virtual 3D objects and virtual space among PCs. We added TVML processing functions to Croquet to develop a novel virtual 3D content browser. We call the browser `Croquet with TVML'. The new Croquet can play virtual 3D content in shared virtual 3D space through peer-to-peer networks. TVML generates a virtual 3D world in the new Croquet
