YES!!! I've got that same problem, too!!! Try researching CU-SeeMe's
color pallet option (under video setup). Try setting to 8bit (256) or 16
colors. Also, try dropping your picture size down to about 160*100, then to
80*50 (Q-CAM frame size).
Somewhere in this madness is the solution!!! Forgive me, I'm at work and
my Q-CAM is at home; so I cannot give you an exact submenu to search!

Good luck and let me know what you find!
