A bit like Skype, but instead of sharing the output of a
webcam, you'd share a chunk of your screen. The chunk
would be resizeable, just like a standard window.
The box would apply not only to visual data, but also
audio - the person on the other end would only hear the
output of programs
within the selected area.
There would also be a file sharing feature which would
allow users to simply drag and drop from the shared
window to their own desktop.
I'm not sure how, but there would have to be some kind
of feedback loop blocker in case the two shared windows
Only one user would be allowed to share their desktop at
a time for the sake of feedback prevention, but there
would be a button on the window that would allow for
instantaneous switching and a chat window to facilitate
||Is this so you can chat to friends using IM, watch a movie you downloaded in a player, and still share that little bit of your desktop you are doing work in with your boss? (Or is there another reason you want this?)
||Actually what made me think of it was wanting to
collaborate in FLStudio (a music
sequencer/synthesizer program) in realtime, but you

another idea, soon to be posted...
||Baked. The current beta of Skype can do the visual part, the audio can be routed fromn anywhere.
||When you say Skype can do the visual part, do you
just mean the camera or can it be a monitor output?
