Hello all.
I have a question about cuseeme from Cornell.
Version 0.92b2 for windows.
Under VIEW, PREFERENCES, VIDEO you have the CHANGE TOLERANCE and REFRESH
INTERVAL.
CHANGE TOLERANCE is at 40
REFRESH INTERVAL is 100

What does this two things do, and what are good values.
I know it is for the compression but what do they do and what are good
settings.
I have a Connectix quickcam and calling with ISDN 64K4
Can't find anything on the cu-seeme homepage.
Please help with an answer !

THEN A SOLUTION FOR PEOPLE BEHIND A FIREWALL TO OPERATE CU-SEEME.
Know this, you are not able to meet anyone, and no connections to any
reflector or personal IP.
Then chances are about 90 % that you are behind the firewall of your IP.
I had that before and the camera is useless for connecting to other people.
There is a solution other then change ISP.
There is a program simular like cu-seeme.
You can find it at http://www.ivisit.com
The program uses a different server and you can talk with any person on
that server, set up your own reflector without anu other program then the
ivisit program, set up passwords for other people so not everyone can log
in at your made reflector.
Audio is also supported.
As soon as you logg off, your reflector is deleted.
And it operates beside a firewall.
I am not making a commercial, are not related to ivisit but it is a perfect
solution to meet people, make your own temporally reflector, join other
groups and with a white page you can see anyone who is online and uses the
program.
Look at it and people without firewall problems have now another new way to
meet persons.
Bye,
Nick
