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
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
