If you're connected via a dial-up modem, make sure you freeze your transmit
video when speaking. You'll find it makes a whole heap of difference.

If you're in direct point to point connection and the other party sounds
choppy, if you see any movement while they are speaking try closing your
receive video window. After a delay of several seconds during which your
CU-SeeMe signals to their CU-SeeMe that transmitting video packets is no
longer necessary, you should notice a sudden improvement in sound quality.
