It has been my experience that Cu-SeeMe 3.1.1 DOES NOT fix problems with
color MPEG codec not transmitting when users change reflectors. I have
using this version since the first day it was posted on the White Pine
and have experienced numerous instances where I am not transmitting
changing refs. In my case it appears to be no better than version 3.1.

What's more, I have "talked" with many others on reflectors who are
experiencing the same problem. Many users have come to the conclusion
the "build 25" bug still exists in 3.1.1. Clearly, the problem still
If I were the only one experiencing it, I would suspect my system or
configuration. However, within just a few hours of release of the new
version Cu-SeeMe users were once again complaining that the "switiching
problem" still exists.
