Dear List Members:
My results using subject combo PC card
(video display, video capture and TV Tuner) running
CuSeeMe (Video Conferencing) and Cudoodle
( on-screen video capture device ) software .
My System: Pentium133, 40mb RAM & Win95
Re: -- > CuSeeMe WP Enh. vs. 2.1.1 (Demo)
System.ini - [DRIVERS]
msvideo=stlthcap.drv, msvideo1=cudoodle.dll
JVC VHS-C CamCorder connect to "Video" card
Settings:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--
Cudoodle.dll chosen as Capture device in CuSeeMe
using either b/w (gray) or color
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
Results: CuSeeMe runs OK as "Lurker" but, NO VIDEO
in CuSeeMe "Send" window when Camcorder vid-image
is dragged into Cudoodle "capture" area !!
However, .bmp or .avi files played in "doodle"
window, SHOWED in "Send" window and DID transmit.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
stlthcap.drv chosen as capture device in CuSeeMe
using either b/w (gray) or color
Results: GOT ERRORS - would NOT RUN :
Not able to capture or send video
re: 120x160 & 4 or 8 bit images
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary: It appears that the Stealth64 Video 2001
TV card may use some propritery compression which can NOT
be changed to uncompressed video and is therefore
NOT COMPATIBLE with CuSeeMe od Cudoodle.
