Fixed and compiled version for linux is at:

ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/mac/tcp/video/nv33b.linux.tar

Standard NV CU-SeeMe encoding does not work on wrong-endian machines
(Intel&Digital), in same directory is also a patch for original sources.
Sources are on parcftp.xerox.com in net-research or something.

NV also does not work on 16-bit-depth screens, you need 8-bit = 256 colors.

No.
You can also use X11 screen grab.

There is linux drivers available for one videocard, it was somethingII,
