Hi, according to my recent experience, we could have a MAYOR contender
in the Video/Audioconference market: Microsoft!

I just downloaded Internet Explorer 3.0 Beta 2 and Netmeeting Beta 2 and
guess what? It works like a charm in my humble 486 DX4/75. Connecting
with a 28.8 modem, the sound was FAR superior to that of InternetPhone,
and... you are able to share ANY application running on your windows 95
environment.. so what you say???? I connected my BW quickcam, started
QuickPict and.. specified it to be a shared application.. result?? the
other party was able to see the Quickpict window, thus, he could See me
(no pun intended) at a FAR BETTER frame rate than Cu-Seeme was ever able
to deliver (remember I=B4m using a 28.8). The other guy reported seeing =
as
much as about 5 frames per second using this configuration. Boy, was I
excited.. But, as if this were not enough, you can have a chat window,
file transfer, and share ANY windows application, even in collaborative
mode!!! Please, if someone out there has the BW QC, Windows 95 and can
set up this configuration, PLEASE, mail me so we can arrange a test, OK?
For those Win 95 users, I urge you to try this, I was deeply impressed.
