    I managed 45 seconds Nov 12, 2010

    Before going mad listening to that mechanical "voice" in the demo. How about recording these webinars using "real" speech?

    Although I've had numerous issues relating to recording and distributing webinars (to Mac users) using gotomeeting, the end result is actually 100 times better than the cartoon I just watched i demo mode.
