Nigel,Thankyou - I am in the picture now.I appreciate it is difficult to
conceive or conceptulise what patterns and needs might emerge at this
stage. Real-time collaborative interaction is a new consideration for me
and describing how an object should behave whilst being under the
influence of multiple users has never been a design issue. I will no
doubt discover as I get stuck in.ThanksAndy
Thank you Raff.I get the picture now. I was assuming that if you could
create rooms, authenticate etc from a third party server - then you
could also send a 'message' to the room.Its good that you are planning
it as it will open a world of possibilities.
Stefan,The youtube demo works now – thanks.I appreciate what you and
Raff are saying. The considerations regarding real-time data transfer is
a new area for me. I am quite a cautious and conservative developer who
never really goes for ‘effect’ – I will carefully assess the
communicative value of an interaction before sticking it in an
application.I am beginning to build a picture of what is involved (I
know this is obvious):Collaborative interactions send messages which get

My curiosity got the better of me... I just tried it again.I can be a
bit more helpful - I get the intial login and can log in, however a few
moments later the computer grinds to a halt - I can hardly get windows
task manager to run. My pc is old, but I run lots of 3D graphics
software and I never have a problem... the you tube living room app is

Thanks Cocomo, I was jumping in with too much excitement! I did agree to
the terms and conditions, but I did not read them... for technical
reasons. My adobe acrobat plugin malfunctioned a some time ago, having
been unable to fix it I have been simply downloading PDF's and reading
them offline. But, you cannot do that with links embedded in flex and
the terms PDF was nowhere else to be found.Anyway, I found the service
restrictions and see the bandwidth is 3GB and concurrent users is 15.
