You didn't mention which versions of CU both of you on. But going on what
you've said, it looks like the other person is sending in a codec you
can't see. There's a rather nice table at that tells you which video codecs are
compatible with which versions of CU-SeeMe.
The easiest solution is to have the other person switch to the Cornell
CU-SeeMe Gray codec.
