Adobe Connect and Cisco WebEx are all-around winners in test of Web-based conferencing products

Skype Premium

Skype is our favorite telephony application, but as a general-purpose Web meeting service it is lacking. You can't initiate a group video call from the mobile client. Also, the mobile client can't send video from the phone camera. You can use the mobile client to view a shared screen or participate in a group audio conference. And if you do a one-to-one call you can get the video from your mobile. Finally, the mobile clients can be slow to connect and post messages. The free version of Skype gives you the option to choose either a live camera video or share your screen. You can have both streams as part of the premium account ($9 per month per user).
