Ian,

Thank you for the help. Unfortunaelty, my laptop does not have a
switch to invert the display.

Someone on the mailing list tells me......

"Cu-see-me uses gets the video directly, *before* the video
compression is done. Several video capture cards do hardware
compresion, in this case Cu-seeme receive the data already compresed
and that gives you a poor quality reversed video.
I am sorry to tell you that there is not much you can do about it.
your only solution is geting the OEM to develop a spcial driver fo Cu-
seeme."

I will contact the card manufacturer to see if different drivers
are available.

Thanks Again.
