Repeated request: Snappy+CUDoodle = happy marriage (?)

Hello there,

We recently had a little discussion on the list regarding capture
devices/cards which
work with CUDoodle (so we could use them for CU-SeeMe). We came to the
realization that not everything works with CUDoodle due to as of yet an
undetermined reason. We suspected no capture board which uses overlay
can do CU-SeeMe (even with CUDoodle) but then again I remember there was
a user who used Video Blaster CT6000 (overlay) successfuly with
CU-SeeMe.

But my question: Did anyone try using the Snappy together with CUDoodle
to use CU-SeeMe? From what I understand all you do is run the Snappy
still-frame grabber program which shows you the live-picture preview in
a 160x120 B&W window. You then run CUDoodle and move the Snappy preview
window to the area on your screen that CUDoodle snaps.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who bought the Snappy, tried CUSeeMe
and were disappointed, BUT were never aware of CUDoodle. It can be
found at:

Thanx,
