One option is osCommerce (http://www.oscommerce.com/),
which I have not played around with. This is on my
roster of things mess around with. I am sure there are
some other options available, and of course the final
option is coding it manually.

I suppose the option here is Real/Helix, Windows
Streaming media etc. Another option is just putting
the files on the server and letting the user download
the files to their client. A final option is providing
3D walkthrough's - Blender has a web plugin for this.
There is also Quicktime VR of course for 3D views.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I can do some web design/development
mainly with PHP, although I do code in ASP also. :)
