I recently heard of a program called Dimdim for hosting online meetings. Apparently, it's free for up to 20 attendees; $25/mo for up to 50 attendees; and $75 for up to 1,000 attendees.

Does anyone know how this compares to GoToMeeting? We have GTM but it doesn't handle videos, esp those that are already embedded in a presentation.

Thanks!

Hi,

I work for Citrix and although GoToMeeting does not have dedicated video support currently you may find these two guides useful: Play videos embedded in PowerPoint, Transmit audio from your comp through GoToMeeting.

Thanks for the info, Glenn.

However, when will GTM have dedicated video support? It's been "in the works" for quite a while now.

Hi,

I don't currently have an ETA on video support but I can say it's being worked on http://www.eweek.com/c/a/VOIP-and-Telephon...roducts-397527/

Dimdim handles video. They are a good alternative if you are looking for a free solution. Another good one for web and video conferencing is RHUB's TurboMeeting. You can use it for conferencing and webinars. http://www.rhubcom.com
