Many of the reflectors on the lists are either down, or temporarily down, or
just don't respond with a message when they are "full".

Try connecting to 127.0.0.1 and see if that works. That is a test reflector
site that simply "reflects" your own video back to you as an active user.
You can then see if your video is really working, and what your image looks
like to others.

At least then you will know that your setup is correct and that the problem
is with the other reflectors.
