Web Conferencing on Devices

A couple of months ago we saw this posting about logging into an Adobe Connect meeting from a Nintendo Wii
And here’s a picture I took last year when I was logged into a meeting using my Pocket PC.
For fun, we’re setting out to see how many devices support the Adobe Connect meeting experience. Since we only need Flash Player to attend a meeting – it’s easy to see why “it just works”. There’s no need for Java or custom applications to be installed. And there aren’t any permissions problems because the Flash Player is pre-installed on so many operating systems that it is already there when you need it.
Last week I was talking to a friend of mine at Sony and asked him to log into my meeting – from his Sony PlayStation 3 – and it worked! Here’s a link to the photo he took while we were whiteboarding on an image. My video camera was live at the time.
Now does anyone have an Xbox to try? 😉

    This is really cool. I just wish I could use Flash on my T-Mobile Dash smartphone (instead of flashlite)….

    Very very cool. My N9500 does not support Flash Player so thats a set back for me. Maybe the new one will. Im a navigator fan :)
