I had this same problem running CU .87b3 on a PowerMac 8500. Only
in my case, it worked fine for awhile and then later began to give
me *NO VIDEO* nightmares.

I eventually figured out that, at least in my case, the problem
came from running the WP 3.1 version of Enhanced CU-SeeMe (the free
demo). When I was happily using it, I left the listener running.
Apparently this interferes with the Cornell version of CU-SeeMe
(.87b3) and causes the *NO VIDEO* problem.

Some on the list have opined that all you have to do is turn off
the listener from within Enhanced CU-SeeMe others claim you have to
disable or remove the "CU-SeeMe Listener" extension from the
extensions folder. In my case it took doing the latter to solve my
*NO VIDEO* problem. Once I removed the Listener and rebooted the
Cornell Version of CU-SeeMe it worked fine.
