Mikogo: free desktop sharing with Skype

Mikogo spun off in July 2007, from, a Mannheim, Germany, company. Since then, fifty thousand users registered for free desktop sharing.

They publish a Mikogo Skype extra, a small plug-in program, so you can start screen sharing sessions from within Skype, using Skype contacts. Nearly ten thousand downloads of the extra.

People use Mikogo for poker training and other live distance education. Companies use Mikogo for technical support, using the remote controlled desktop and file transfers. Sales people host presentations. Small companies and freelance workers are the early adopters.


  • Up to ten participants in a meeting
  • Switch presenter
  • Access remote keyboard and mouse
  • Pause/resume session
  • Select applications
  • 256-bit AES end-to-end encryption
  • File transfers up to 200 MBs within a session

More features are available for a BeamYourScreen subscription. Up to twenty participants, whiteboard, recording and playback, live support. Their browser viewer is pure dhtml without ActiveX, Java or Flash required.

P.S. The giraffe is named Mikogo too.

This is also good.
Works well, doesn't require installation or specific config, works behind gateways NAT as well as within one LAN.

Yeah, Mikogo integration with Skype is new buzzword in the industry. But I use RHUB web conferencing servers for all my business meetings needs and I must say it is Fortknox.
