Holy cow this sounds like a cool program! Let me see if I get this straight.
My clients could have a two-hour session where they talk about all sort of
things and make lots of decisions, and when it's all over, I can burn a copy
of the information to a DVD with the standalone player on it, and they can
watch it on their computer, even if they don't have vic and rat installed.
Am I reading this right??

Some questions I can't find on the FAQ:

1. How big are the files? More importantly, how many hours of recordings can
I fit on a standard DVD-R?

2. I have a four-display system, what will happen when the recording is
played back on a single display? Will it all fit?

Thanks for this application. I can't wait to try it out. ~Ian

> Hi,
> I thought I'd make a small announcement that I've released an
> AccessGrid Shared Application, 'AGVCR Launcher', that when launched in a
> venue will start AGVCR and configure it automatically from the Venue
> information.
> It supports encrypted venues and has a configuration dialog for a local
> configuration option of a default directory to save files in
> (automatically named based on Venue name and date). Once set, it will be
> remembered every time that AGVCR Launcher runs, regardless of venue. It
> works either with an installed AGVCR or with the standalone packages
> available, depending on your situation. Since it's just a Python script
> it of course works on all platforms.
> It borrows heavily from SharedBrowser and I also took hints/ideas from
> Namgon Kim's AGConnector. A big thanks to those authors  since it gave
> me a good starting point into writing AG shared apps (and Python in
> general!)
> Project website is:

> Please download it, give it a go, and let me know what you think.
