Was your friend running CU-SeeMe and transferring the results from
the cam attached to his computer to the web page via a Java applet or
was he running one of the numerous commercial or shareware products
that allow transmission of a still or stop motion video sequence to a
web page?

Either way, the Java applet sounds intriguing. Would your friend
perhaps be willing to share his discovery with the list, either
directly or though you?
