You didn't mention the version of CU-SeeMe that you're using, but it
sounds like the Cornell version. Make sure you have 1.0 from The Quickcam VC seems to have a tendency to
default to QCIF resolution which CU doesn't understand. Use View ->
Preferences -> View -> click the Video Format button and select a
resolution of 160x120. That should bring your local vid screen up.
