The unsupported function is probably from having the wrong version of
ctdl3.dll or msvideo in your windows\system directory. Go back and read the
instructions for installing CU-SeeMe, and you will find that their version
is probably NOT the latest, which means you should use the one you already
had. my versions are dated like this:

msvideo.dll 131,936 3-16-95 10:18pm
ctl3d.dll 25,104 8-23-94 5:37am

Let me know if you already wrote over your real versions, and I will be glad
to email mine to you. This may be the entire cause of your problem, but
also check your max transmit and receive settings. For a 28.8 modem they
should be no higher than 28.
