    Just attended the Webinar. MUCH ENJOYED !

    One query, why did we have to dial in for the audio ?

    Surely it would have been simple enough to incorporate the audio with the video.

    Or am I missing something ?

    John,

    Believe it or not, voice actually is harder to stream over the internet than video, but a webinar just put's a copy of the screen in the browser, and then only sends the changes, so the bandwith is relatively small compared to video and very small compared to sound. Also sound tends to be harder to recieve when using VOIP, because network packets can get delayed, making the sound reconstruction noisier. If you miss a frame of video, the eye is forgiving. You miss a packet of sound, and it sounds bad.

    Regular phones are much more reliable

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I regularly use SKYPE to talk to my brother in Texas and except for an occasional hollow sound, it seems to perform reasonably well.

    Hence my question.

    Thanks again

    John

    Tom, it looked like a Camtasia recording which captures sound and screen activity.

    Will this webinar be downloadable in the future? I was unable to attend due to having to be at work at that time.

    Hi Richard,

    Can the downloadable files be burned on a DVD for playback?
