Integrating video and screencasts

What's important is to integrate the video and the screencasts. So with Yugma you accomplished the screencasts and here with ooVoo you have a video segment -- but where is the technology that unites the two. . . Also, the audio is considerably better on the podcast than here. I would love to use this technology for language learning. Currently we are using recorded Skype conversations between students with great success, because the quality of the audio is good. Trevor

Player stalled at 8:25 several times I tried it... btw ooVoo has a great interface for conference calling. Jose Rodriguez; It's Elementary

Problems with ooVoo on Mac?

Tried ooVoo on my Mac (Macbook Pro). When I restarted my computer later in the day it had decided it was going to be a login item and many of the current login items were removed in my preferences. I removed it and had to redo my preferences. This is one I will avoid until this problem is solved. Gary
