In oVirt 3.3 you have serveral options for SPICE:
- Native client
- Browser plugin (requires Firefox)
- SPICE HTML5 browser client (didn't test this option yet)

The native client option is working fine for me with Chrome 31 on Fedora
19. It opens console.vv with virt-viewer. Theoretically it should work
on Windows as well, but didn't test it yet...
