The current released version of CU-SeeMe for Windows from White Pine has
two extra Audio Compression algorithms over the current released Macintosh
versions. They are 8.5 kbs "DigiTalk" and 2.4 kbs "Voxware". If you
attempt to receive on your Macintosh anyone using these algorithms, you
will experience the problems you have mentioned. This may be addressed in
future versions of Macintosh CU-SeeMe from White Pine, but be warned both
"DigiTalk" and "Voxware" are very processor-intensive and may require
hi-end Power-PC Macintoshes.
