When choosing Web conferencing software, select a product that does not require your viewers to download too many plug-ins. Otherwise, you may run into three main problems:
First, not everyone may have a system that will run the required Web conferencing software plug-ins. For this reason, they may be unable to view your presentation altogether.
Second, your viewers may not be aware they need the Web conferencing software plug-in until they try to access your meeting. This may cause those with dial-up to miss a large portion of it if the download is large or if there are multiple downloads required.
Third, some users just do not like to be required to download things. They don't want to “clog up” their system nor wait for a download to complete. This may cause those who are not required to attend your meeting to skip it altogether.
