MediaCast broadcasts are available by connecting to the cuseeme.mediacast.com reflector.
MBONE is the most complex software to install and configure. It requires that you either already be on a network with an MBONE feed (your local System Administrator should be able to answer that for you-- people at home will not be) or be able to get an "MBONE tunnel" fed to you. You will want to read the MBONE FAQ which will answer most all of your first questions as well as direct you to further resources.
MediaCast broadcasts will be easily identified by the inclusion of MediaCast in the event title in your SD listing.


New tools are being developed all the time! Be prepared to pick them up as they are released and we incorporate them into our technology package.
