[GnomeMeeting-list] Keep H.323 but avoid Netmeeting!


Lot of discussion on this list by people who want to use NetMeeting with their openh323 systems. Note that the performance of Netmeeting is sufficient to drag down video quality and even lock up H.323 conferences, so this is a bad idea. If people want to include Windows users in their conferences, they should use inexpensive hardware-codec camera solutions like the Polycom ViaVideo, etc. GnomeMeeting on a reasonably recent fast Linux box works fine, especially if you are running your video through a hardware capture card, but avoid allowing Netmeeting users to connect to your conferences.
