Question about Citrix GoToMeeting
I have video embedded in a PowerPoint and it cannot be viewed. I tested it in Windows media player (yes, I disabled hardward overlay) and it is choppy at best. Help!
This is actually quite common when using powerpoint files with online tools. From the guide:
"A current constraint of collaborative software (including
GoToMeeting) and the bandwidth connectivity to sites is that digital video-clips are NOT
transmitted satisfactorily. The sampling frame rate is not adequate for high quality motion.
To overcome this and provide the clips in their original quality to the virtual participants, the
transfer the powerpoint files and the associated video clips is undertaken as a routine
practice. They are then manually played at each site on adequate pausing and cueing from
you the speaker. It is advisable to confirm that they have viewed the clip before proceeding.
Given notorious incompatibility problems with wide variety of video standards, file formats,
proprietary codecs (for compression/decompression) and the main players (Windows Media,
QuickTime & Real), it is essential to have a technical pre-check of the clips completed in
advance at each site. This is scheduled for the inclusion in the technical testing on the
Wednesday immediately prior to your seminar.
NO audio track should be included with the video clips. This avoids the potential problems of
Sorry that formatting is a little sloppy. Hope this helps, and I'm not sure about the last part of what you said, in regard to media player being choppy. Were you saying that you played the source video locally in media player and it was choppy? Cause that would be another issue ;)

Flash is going to have a similar problem. You are being constricted by the amount of screen space you are refreshing. The smaller the screenspace that is being refreshed, the faster it will transfer to your attendees.
