Breeze Live: Bookmark Pod

The bookmark pod is an odd little number. It's not included in any standard layout so you'll need to do some layout customisation to get it to appear. When the presenter selects a bookmark, all participants fire a default browser window headed for the specified address. We use it more for a keeping tabs on bookmarks related to the project room and not so much for group surfing.

Breeze Live: Polling Pod

The polling pod is a great little addition to the meeting room. It's a sinch to set up, and a great way of adding a bit of democracy to your remote love-in. I've taken some screenshots of the pod from the presenter's perspective.

Breeze Live: file share pod

The file share pod is new to Breeze Live v4. It lets you upload any sort of file for sharing and download by other participants. Pretty much a meeting room drop-box. Because the meeting room is permanent it makes for an ideal place to keep relevant project files and specifications.

Latest version of Breeze Live on hosted servers

Well it's probably old news now for those folks already using Breeze Live, but the hosted Breeze Macromedia servers have been updated to use the latest version of Breeze Live. There have been some fantastic new additions to the whole environment. I'll blog some screen grabs of the latest pods and bits in the coming days.

Breeze Live Custom Pods API

The January Macromedia Edge newsletter has an interesting article on the future of Breeze Live and custom pods. Jonathon Gay is not all that forthcoming about what to expect from the API but nevertheless it is interesting to speculate. Clearly if any Flash/FlashComm developer can get their hands dirty and build extensions to Breeze Live we're going to see a collection of new pods released in the next edition of Breeze.

As Soon As Present: Breeze Live killer?!

Just went through a demo from with a mate on As Soon As Present (ASAP) -- looks like a Breeze Live killer if ever I saw one. What's remarkable is that ASAP client is all Flash (with a wrapper for the desktop) and Convoq are embedding Flash Comms server in the backend to provide video and VOIP -- does the technology approach sound familiar?

Breeze Live Connectivity: Symptoms, Causes, Solutions

Macromedian Peter Ryce has put together a great presentation for trouble shooting wayward Breeze Live sessions. As robust as Breeze Live is, there's little you can do if things aren't set up correctly or if the network is performing badly. Overall a great round up of things that can go wrong and how to deal with them.

Breeze Live Player for Central

Dave Bisset had a brief post on the talk surrounding the rumoured release of a Breeze Live API for Pods (via Fullasagoog). Kevin Lynch makes the interesting comment that Central has playback capabilities for Breeze Live -- but not the Breeze Player required for presenters. I'm not sure what the relevance of this is really, Breeze Live just needs Flash Player 6 and above to be a participant. But it got me thinking.
