Really disappointed the recordings don't contain the screen sharing component. Listening to Martin's keynote and he is doing a demo of 2.5 and I staring at a slide. Big fail.
They may be coming.... Or so they have said... I also hope they trim the start of some. I have a big extra blank bit at the start of mine!
I understand that BBB will release videos of the sessions that will include the screen sharing. And I agree that is basic to any web conferencing system.
To be clear ...
BigBlueButton does not playback the desktop sharing with recordings in the version (0.81-dev) used by iMoot. This feature is on the road map for a future version.
However, after iMoot is over, Blindside Networks (the company providing iMoot with commercial support for BigBlueButton) will undertake to create video files (including desktop) of all sessions sessions.
