Win Audio via dialup

There have been many recent posts complaining about poor or no
audio in the Windows versions from users dialing up at 14.4/28.8.
If these folks had read the FAQ, they would know why.

How does CU-SeeMe work over a 14.4 kbps modem?

Badly.

The amount of information needed to transmit audio and video simply
is more than 14.4 kpbs. To understand a little more about the
bandwidth constraints, please check out information about data
generated by a video camera (via a discussion of frame rates) and
related audio notes.

Please folks, read *everything* that M. Sattler, Cornell, and White Pine
have on this subject before complaining about how badly it works.
