Video Conferencing for free

I was introduced to http://www.mebeam.com last year by colleagues in the US, and its a quite cool video conferencing feature. The lag in Europe is appalling, so I use the phone to host the voice channel. You can use whatever string you want to act as the meeting name, which you can enter on the home page, [ hover or click on the link above] or in your browser's URL entry box.

So I use IM and the phone to support the video channel. I was having some problems connecting up with some Mac using colleagues, so connected to Hans Joerg who is a bit of wiz with the Mac. I am on the left, and you can see the IM dialogue box.

and he explained that the configuration needs to be changed using the panel that is opened by pressing the 'settings' button on the bottom right hand side of one's own picture. Mac Users may default to 'DVD Video Class' and they require 'USB Video Class'. (The picture below was scrapped from my screen, and I am using a windows XP machine, which is why the text says something else.)

Hmm! An advert, but it looks like its by a person, not a 'bot and it is an addition to the discussion. I may delete these in a month, or not.

Cheers Anthony, good luck.

Hi Dave,

Ye4s it is an advert, but you are correct that I am a person and not a bot. I don't randomly spam, but do try to get my company's name out where someone is discussing conferencing because I think it is relevant and we have a good product.

I'd be glad to give you a personal demonstration of it so you can form your own opinion.

Anthony
