Ray,

If I recall, we already informed you (and some others concerning this
problem) that this problem is in the ATI video digitizer software installed
on your system.

We have a working relationship with ATI (and most other vDig vendors) and
they have fixed other issues in their vDig, but have yet to address this
one. Please follow up with them (we DO remind them of this problem
periodically, but they've been busy...).

As for it "not happen in ANY of the other video related
applications".....all apps. do not use the same capabilities of a vDig.
CU-SeeMe makes use of some vDig APIs which other vendors don't use and
don't make use of some which others do use. This is due to design of our
realtime videoconferencing product (while most video apps. are canned
playpack apps).

The WPSG Video Codec (cu-seeme gray) should be part of the 3.1 preview
kit...if not, it's oversight on our part...I'll pass it along.
