    How to join live presentations on Internet with Linux box


    Hi folks,

    Fedora Core 3

    I'm prepared to join a live presentations via Internet. The company holding the presentations requires participants equipped with live phone connection. They also require M$Windows Media player and Livemeeting to join the presentations.

    I haven't had a M$Windows box with those software running. Please advise would it be possible to join the presentations with a Linux box? TIA

    Hi Vergil83",

    Tks for your advice. Can I use "mplayer" as M$Windows Media Player"?

    Hereinunder is the result on checking the existence of "gnomemeeting" and "mplayer" on my box.

    # yum search gnomemeeting
    Code:
    Searching Packages:
    .......
    gnomemeeting.i386                        1.0.2-8                base

    gnomemeeting
    GnomeMeeting is a tool to communicate with video and audio over the internet.
    It uses the H323 protocol and is compatible with Microsoft Netmeeting.

    I don't think you *need* mplayer.... i think the video appears in gnomemeeting (I can't say for sure, I have never used it)

    Hi Vergil83,

    Tks for your URL.

    Gnomemeeting can communicate with "netmeeting" on M$Windows but I have no idea whether it can work with "livemeeting".
