@nickrock I have Tried and used many of the different conferencing programs. I’m on a PC and haven’t tested for a MAC. I’ve been a beta tester for several of them- Hot Conference- now GVO Conference, Webex, Freebinar (now Anymeeting), and Yugma.
It depends on what you need also- do you need to share your screen? Do you need it for ongoing collaborations or courses? Do you plan on just doing webinars, where you’re the only one speaking?
I’ve also tried out several free ones like Anymeeting, Vyew, Join.me.
Vyew is cool for ongoing projects since it saves everything from previous sessions. The only real drawback is you can only have 10 people, but you can have up to 10 rooms- so it’s great for small groups. I also use it when working w/ a client, then delete the room after the work is completed.
Join.me is nice and is free for up to 250 people. Anymeeting is free for up to 200 peple, but you can only have 4 people on the mic at a time, but if you don’t need others to speak, then it would work fine. LiveStream- now has an app for FB so you can broadcast from your page and you can share your desktop. I’ve just attended events and have not used it myself.
GVO’s desktop share is buggy and doesn’t always work well. Back in the summer, GTM or GTW was supposed to become an addon to Skype this past fall, but I haven’t heard any more news on it.
Almost forgot to add- do you have a Windows emulator? Or if you do, does it not work w/ GTW?
Sorry to be so lengthy, hope it helps a bit.
