To get Enhanced CU-SeeMe working with QuickCam

We have gotten many users calling about the Color QuickCam crashing when
starting Enhanced CU-SeeMe. The Problem comes when you have CU-SeeMe already
installed and then added the QuickCam, the quickcam does not get to happy
about setting it into 24 bit capture mode before detecting what modes it
does support from a raw new install of CU-SeeMe. So if you had CU-SeeMe
configured before or used with another capture card you need to make sure
it does not try to set it into this mode. Below is a workarround from

The workaround is this:

edit the cuseeme.ini file
find the [capture settings] section
change the line CaptureDepth= from 24 to 16
save and exit
startup Enhanced CU-SeeMe (user gets an all-white local video window)
go to preferences - change codec to color.

The user should be all set after that.

Good Luck
