Works real nice for me on windows with both FireFox 1.0.7 with
Flash plug-in installed and Internet Explorer 6 with active X

I think it works very well. It works on both Windows and Linux.
Here is my first attempt at a movie that shows how to edit a
pamphlet file on MathAction.

It is also possible to do this with sound, but I didn't have
the necessary hardware last night.

This one is pretty neat too - also works on both Windows and
Linux. Here is a movie made with wink that includes some
annotations added to some of the frames.

vnc2swf is harder to setup but it seems a little faster and
smoother than wink, at least on my hardware (1GHz, 512Mb.)
In general I think that if you are going to do video, that
faster the machine you use, the better.
