Thanks for the suggestion, but, as far as I know, it is not possible to set
the video depth below 8 bits (256 colors or grays) on desktop Powermacs.
Anyway, my local video window works perfectly well, so I doubt the problems
have much to do with video display hardware.

I am beginning to think that CU-SeeMe is simply not compatible with PMac
7200's yet. Does anyone else out there run CU-SeeMe on a 7200? I would
really appreciate any replies to this question or further help with the
above problems!
