Surveillance monitoring (and cuseeme protocol)

I recently published a shareware application called VidWatch which
cpatures video from a capture device such as Quickcam and saves only
those changes in an AVI file. The result is a significantly smaller AVI
file than if you had left the camera collecting continuously. As an
example, 10 secs = 2Mbytes of data. By capturing only the changes, 10
minutes is << 2 Mbytes!!

The shareware can be found at

If I could only get my hands on the protocol spec for CuSeeme I could
include this in the VidWatch capabailities. Alas, I find that the
Cu-Seeme protocol spec will not be published.
