I wish to setup a virtual meeting every week at a set day and time for approximately 30 people where we will review a YouTube video and chat about the video together. Here is my conclusion:
1) SL I must purchase land, then build a conference room, add furniture etc. Long, long learning curve. Monthly fee. Not sure if I can "rent" a conference room every week and change the video before each meeting.
2) Lively: Best option. Very easy to create room add video. Completely free. I hate the cartoonish avatars. Looks cheap.
3) IMVU. No idea if you can create a conference room.
4) Yahoo chat. Best option supporting video. Not a virtual world.
Why is this so hard - can anyone suggest an option?
