Webex should work. The core engine was written by a team of us back in 1999 and was meant to work on PC's Mac's and Unix over the web. We never got fully funded and ended up selling our engine to Webex and Yahoo. This was way back 8 yrs ago but I would think that Webex should work, is it cheap that I am not sure of.

Michael -

I've been searching for the same, and have had to resort to using GoToMeeting under XP running in Parallels (requires an Intel Mac of course) to host a meeting; however, Mac and Windows users can both easily access said meetings, but the scheduling/sharing only runs on Windows. Not a great solution, but it has kept me from switching back to Windows when I need to host a presentation. Now, this works fine for presenting web apps, but if you need to share share a native Mac app, you are of course out of luck. GoToMeeting is a flat $49 per month and it's been rock solid.

I would love to hear about someone else's (Mac native) solution.

Not sure if the list has ever tackled this, but I need to find a web conferencing service that REALLY works for Mac presenters and doesn't cost a fortune.

The primary goals are training users on how to use websites/software we build and general demo, screen/desktop sharing, presentation, etc.

Having the experience be download free for attendees is essential. I don't mind if the presenters have to download something. For now services that accommodate small groups of attendees is adequate.

I have tried using Adobe Connect, because the download the presenter needs works on mac and the attendees don't need to download anything. The problem is my desktop sharing kept getting kicked off way more than is acceptable in the course of a demo. I tried LiveLook, it wasn't working properly and received no call back from customer service.

Any help based on personal experience would be greatly appreciated!

Preemptive strike... I won't switch back to a PC Victor :)
