I have heard great things about using http://www.oovoo.com/ for video conferenceing. It is quite similar to skype, but allows for multiple video feeds. 

Other webex style conferenceing is DimDim.com, and zoho meeting (which I use often for remote tech work).

Mike, 

Way cool! I checked out the website http://www.mythtv.org/. Would this 
work using videoconferencing?

We captured the video off of cable tv using MythTV, like tivo, then 
provided the file to the network through VLC over UDP (multicast). Ran 
great, no hang-ups. We provided a shortcut to the VLC stream in a 
shared network drive so our students and teachers could easily access 
it. I'd bet we had 300+ connections to it. 

End result was a multicast video stream about 30 seconds behind live tv. 
The video and audio quality was awesome. 

It was suggested that we could present this at the SB Tech Conference.

Dear List: 

I was out sick that day, but could track utilization from home. 

One issue we ran into was installation of updated FLASH. 

Not something I tend to unless it is needed. 

Had a number of users who could not view a stream due to outdated flash, 
nor 
install it on their own (permission reasons). 

Anyone run into problems, anyone sail through easily? 

Anyone install silverlight for the official PIC site? 

R.
