Melrose, November 8th, 2004, Conficio released today a new version of its Plan-B player. Conficio's Plan-B offers visual help for software. It replaces lists of frequently asked questions and written answers by screencast technology, optimized for delivery over the Internet. The new player, release 2.2, includes a list of bug fixes.

Plan-B screencasts are screen recordings of PC applications in action, annotated with callout bubbles explainign how to use the software. These screencasts are played in the user's Internet browser. The screencasts are served using any standard web-server and played using any Java™ enabled web browser. This specialized screencast technology allows comfortable playback over a 56k dial-up Internet connection.

Conficio's simple but powerful Plan-B technology brings short, teaching screencasts to end-users over the Internet at minimal cost. The screencasts are cost efficient to produce, as recording and editing is simple. They are also cost efficient to serve to customers, as no specialized hardware or software, like streaming video servers, is required. The Plan-B player does not need a proprietary browser plug-in and plays the screencasts over a 56K dial-up connection in high quality.
