Are you using a quickcam? If so, then the speed of your parallel port and
CPU are the limiting factors here. A high speed EPP parallel port can make
a big difference in the amount of FPS, but also keep in mind that CU only
sends the pixels that have changed, so I don't think you will EVER need more
than 100k for transmit max.
