    Wow... this is an absolutely awesome, easy to install, user friendly ap. Thank you very much.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to build a feature that would allow authentication (for presenters) against an existing mysql database.

    You may be familiar with another open source web presentation product called web huddle. their mysql integration feature is described here http://webhuddle.cvs.sourceforge.net/webhuddle/webhuddle/docs/README-SQL.txt?revision=1.2&view=markup

    Thanks again for this great software!!!!!!

      I believe Presenter authentication is absolutely essential.  MySQL is a good back-end choice.

      Hello,

      Currently Dimdim has a basic way of authentication using the email addresses of presenters.
      For more details please see the following post
      http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=4223480

      You could pull all the user email-addresses from the MySql database into a file and use it.
      Any changes to users would need to be updated manually, or through a batch script running a SQL periodically.

      Regards,
      Uday
