I had the same problem with my FAST Screen Machine card in the
beginning, and now it works. Don't give up, rather look if you have
set the correct parameters in the video settings.
Image size, 8 bit palletized LUT, video standard are things to look
for. It seems that you have to exit CU after setting the parameters
and restart it to make them permanent, but I am not 100% sure of
that. At least, it does no harm.

And as soon as you have it going, anybody will be able to watch you
sitting in front of your screen, occasionally looking into the
camera, but it is a lot of fun and a really new way of getting an
image of the other end of the connect :)


Anybody out there who have collected really useful experience using
CU-SeeMe in their professional / private environment? If so, why
don't you post it here :)
