CU-Seeme for X -- YES!

Hey all,

I found a program for X that is CU-Seeme compatible!

The program is called "nv" and is available via FTP at

ftp.parc.xerox.com/pub/net-research/nv3.3beta

The program required a shared library (on my Linux system) called
"libtk.so.3" to run. This file is available at:

unix.hensa.ac.uk/pub/yggdrasil/usr/lib/libtk.so.3

The "nv" program is also available for many other UNIX platforms.

Now lets all go to work and see if anyone can:

1. Get it to receive without having to put it into transmit mode.
It works well, but only if I transmit as well (it lets you transmit still
frames, or the contents of your screen capture buffer). In receive mode
it just sits there and doesn't do much.

2. Find a frame grabber that will work with Linux and this program!

Cool stuff: The other two supported video modes apparently are COLOR
compatible!

Have a good weekend :-)
