speed, chevron, systray RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I was hoping the speed issue would have been improved with the release version but that unfortunately doesn't seem to be the case :-(  So, the suggested speed improvement still stands.


    That said I wonder if the SharedView team is receiving pressure _not_ to improve the speed so as not to cut into the LiveSpace paid collaboraton tool's marketspace.  As it stands, SharedView would indeed find favor among the IT crowd as a free solution that could fit a big chunk of their remote support/meeting needs.


    I suspect this may have been why netmeeting was stopped in its development tracks.  NM was a killer tool for remote support (given some firewall/router tweaks).  It was fast, easy, built-in and remote-users could connect directly.


    In any event, another suggestion would be to have the main SV toolbar auto-'hug' against the top of the screen, displaying only a small chevron so the user can grab/restore it as needed.  The toolbar should be invisible to users remotely viewing the screen.


    Also, an ability to minimize to the systray would be nice.

  • Hey,

      I am having speed issues.  It seems to me that you should be able to specify the level of image detail sent - like how many colors to use.  So that the bare minimum detail could be sent for clients who are on slower connections - like Satellite.  That sort of thing is in Remote Desktop.  What I would really like to see is the ability in Remote Desktop to connect to an active user and share the desktop with that user.  I really dont understand why we can't do that - why do they have to log out for me to logon.  THen we wouldnt need ShareView or VNC(which is not working on Vista).

      Also the whole security thing needs to be explained.  I connected to someone without even entering my password.  Is that because I was already IMing them?  In IM you can have a listed of trusted contacts and block everyone else.  I'd like to see that in Share view so that I know that no hacker is going to bust into my session.

      But best of all would be to just change remote desktop.
