Heycosmo is a new service that launched yesterday that supports up to ten live, web-cam participants and another fifty people can enjoy from a more passive manner, listening, watching or chatting during the broadcast session.
It offers a much broader set of facilities to users, enabling them to broadcast content in a multimedia platform that can display videos, photos, games and even has a blogging facility. However, I suspect the most popular facility will be the “Texas Hold’em card game tables” where you can play poker live with your chums remotely, or indeed with anyone online.
But I reckon that you could easily use this to hold video conferences, or even seminars with a panel and an audience. I’ve not yet had chance to try out the conferencing in anger, but looking round the site, it seems possible. If I get it working, I will report back.
Sadly it doesn’t work in Firefox (only IE)
