I have yet to see my own cuseeme working, however, reading some
documentation I've found that my sound card (gravis ultrasound max), does
not actually support an 'overall volume control' however, it specifies
that the sound has built in controls for each individual sound component
eg line in,wave,midi,mic,cd etc.

I suppose this siggest that if a program (eg cusm) only calls the overall
volume control, then it may be fooled in to thinking there is no volume
control.

For this reason, in win95, the volume control on the task bar is
unavailable, but I still can use components of the win95 mixer.

Hope this helps in some way.
