Is it possible to upload JPEG/BMP/GIF files to a Live Meeting 2007 conference? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    We are currently in the middle of an Microsoft Office Communications Server deployment at a customer site. We have deployed a single OCS front end server with two edge servers and all seemed to work perfectly fine. At this very moment we are testing this OCS deployment. During these tests we have noticed that it is not possible to upload a JPEG/BMP/GIF/TIFF file to a Live Meeting 2007 Web Conference. This feels very strange especially since we can upload all sorts of office documents like DOCX, XLS etc. Also TXT & PDF files can be uploaded without a problem.

    If we try to upload a picture we receive the following message from live meeting 2007: Live Meeting can't upload this type of file.

    Can anyone confirm that it is indeed possible to upload picture files like JPEG and BMP to a Live Meeting 2007 web conference? Microsoft does not seem to have a list of supported file types for Live Meeting except that it never states that it is possible to upload picture files neither does it exclude the possibility.

    The really confusing part is KB article KB937295 "A low resolution image is displayed in black and white when you upload a JPEG file to a Live Meeting 2007 session" which gives us a hint that it could be possible. But since I have never seen it work (tested it on two different OCS implementations) I am a bit lost here.

    Any confirmation would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

  • That is not possible even in LiveMeeting R2
    You should upload a screen snapshot, that is also available from the content menu
