I remember some time back reading something about a similar problem with
the Macintosh 7500. It was in reference to Apple's Quicktime Conferencing,
but I believe that it was also relevant to CU-SeeMe. I have lost the
reference now, but I believe it was something to do with a problem with the
Operating System which would be fixed in due course.

I do remember that we had no success at the time using the boss's 7500 for
CU-SeeMe using the built-in Apple Video board, but we haven't gotten around
to checking it out again recently since he upgraded his OS to 7.5.5.

If I were you I'd upgrade my OS and you may find the problem goes away. No
promises, but let us all know how you go!
