Your welcome. I'm glad you sent this mail, I was going to have to search back
to find your address. One of the things that I'm not sure I mentioned in my
description. If there is only one video source connected to the primary
reflector, which will be feeding the downstream reflectors, you must start the
primary reflector with the -broadcast switch to force the single video sender
to send his video. Otherwise, the single client doesn't think anyone is
watching, and like a repsonsible bandwidth user, won't send it's video.
