Put up a QuickTime movie, or series of QuickTime movies, on a Web page.
This gives you video-on-demand (people can wait a few minutes for it to
download since it's *NOT* live anyway); it gets through firewalls, unlike
CU-SeeMe; it can be saved and watched again, even when they're not
connected (such as on the plane on the way to Japan)... in other words,
it's the right tool for the job. CU-SeeMe is not.
