It seems you can use Live Meeting Web Access to join, but not host meetings.

thanks for quick reply. So this is the URL of web based live meeting. – Vivart Aug 9 '11 at 15:47
On live meeting invitation mail i clicked on "join the meeting" and nothing happened. Do i need anything else to install. – Vivart Aug 9 '11 at 15:57
Sorry, I just looked that up on the web. I don't have any experience with Microsoft products on the Mac, so don't know if you need any additional software. – Patrick Aug 9 '11 at 16:03

You might want to consider using the excellent Adobe Connect web-based screen-share/collaboration tool: truly cross-platform (hell, it supports PS3) and overall a better feature set.

Also note that Microsoft Live Meeting works in Safari but not on Chrome. At least on my MacBookPro and Leopard. In case you have other browser than Safari set as a default browser, you'll need to copy-paste the LiveMeeting link into Safari
