    Hello,

    I'm fairly new to Mac's so I would like some recommendations on who has the best presentation capability for OS X like webex or gotomypc.

    The presentation will be to several guests in different locations. Audio support isn't important as regular teleconferencing will be used, but it would be nice to have video support (half-duplex being ok).

    Thanks for any help,

    j00d

    My first suggestion is gotomeeting.com or join.me

    thanks after some stumbling around in google, this adobe service seems interesting:

    http://www.adobe.com/acom/connectnow/

    it runs in flash (i think) so it's very likely you won't have to ask your guests to download any software, they could just run it in their browser. which is huge, because i think people really appreciate a near clientless type service.

    it doesn't look like there's any video support at all though, which is a puzzling bummer since the vast majority of cam sites on the internet use flash

    I prefer using TeamViewer, which works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's very secure and quite simple to set up and use.

    You can set up browser-based presentations quickly.... and it's free.

    i think every time i've used teamviewer on windows, there were 3 different warnings that it was only free for non-commercial use. is the licensing different for platforms?

    also, when i went to investigate what their licensing options are, it was definitely not meant for small organizations, it was a big mess of expensive plans

    It is free for non-commercial use. If you simply want to make presentations or remotely control one computer at a time, you can use the free version. The commercial versions include branding and remotely controlling multiple computers, logging connection time for billing, etc.

    I found this on the TeamViewer site:
