Meeting 24 is the newest addition to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
It’s a very easy video conferencing system (though it also appears to work if you just have a mike and not a webcam). It’s similar to MeBeam and Tokbox two other online video conferencing sites on that list. Those two allow you to just use microphones for audio if you don’t have a webcam. MeBeam lets up to eighteen people participate, while Tokbox lets up to “20-25” (at that point, there’s some deterioration in audio/video quality).
Meeting 24, however, allows up to…24 people to take part.
Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.
Tokbox’s video conferencing feature can easily handle 20-25 people (not 6). We’ve actually seen 50+ in a conference call but recommend a smaller number to minimize performance issues.
Larry, have you tried scribblar? http://www.scribblar.com/
I think it is an amazing program, excellent voice quality, unlimited capacity, I believe… no web cam, but you can put url’s in the chat box… nice whiteboard… here, take a look at one I have set up: http://scribblar.com/rooms/index.cfm?r=yu3mt4j&c=50C4FF6B-1111-1701-BF25DAA7AE19D015
What makes this program special is ease of use, and the superb sound quality… I think I am in love with it! 😀
Oops! I see you already mentioned scribblar in your best of list : ) … never mind!
