MeetingBurner is a new video conferencing service that offers video, voice and web conferencing with all of the features you would expect from a more expensive commercial service for free. If you host small meetings or work at an organisation where there’s no company-sponsored video conferencing solution and no budget to buy accounts to one, MeetingBurner is worth a look.Basic accounts at MeetingBurner are completely free, and offer all of the features most users would need to host online meetings with ease. You can host meetings with up to 15 participants, use an integrated conference bridge so your participants can all join, make use of screen sharing and presentation sharing, and no ads of any kind. The service is fast, and allows participants to join your meetings without hefty downloads or client installs first. MeetingBurner also offers an iPhone app so you can join a meeting on the go.
Free accounts at MeetingBurner will be enough for most people, but if you need the ability to invite more people to your meetings, MeetingBurner Pro ($US39.95/month) gives you all of the features of free, records your meetings for future reference and lets you upload them to YouTube, and is competitively priced with enterprise solutions like GoToMeeting, WebEx, and some of your other favourite online meeting services. There’s also MeetingBurner Premier ($99/month) for businesses, which bumps up the number of attendees to over 1000 and adds a few additional business-friendly features.
