I just find the really good and free solution for online meetings – it’s ‘Mikogo‘.
It’s probably not the best from the best – I must agree that WebEx functionality is wider and it has a lot of other tools, but Mikogo has such killer pros
- It’s free (and it’s the most important argument)
- It run well on 64 bit systems. Microsoft SharedView doesn’t support 64-bit Windows-XP
- It have “record” feature, so you can record your meetings
- a lot of other features (but not too much to be hard to use)
Before using Mikogo I’ve used several online meeting applications – one of them are paid services like WebEx and GoToMeeting. Nothing bad about them (they are cool services), but they are quite expensive tools. As for MS SharedView – it don’t want to run on my WindowsXP 64bit, so I have to install and use it on my 32-bit Windows inside VMWare plus SharedView don’t hide it’s menu and that eats vertical screen-space, so the picture was not pretty-good if presenter has big screen resolution.
Yeah, I also use Skype Unite-extra to share my screen, but the quality of the picture was quite blurry, so I don’t think it’s an option for online meetings.
