It's all there in the cudoodle.txt file:

You might have to restart win95 after this...I'm not certain. You might
also need to go to control panel/multimedia/advanced/video capture
devices/cudoodle/USE this capture driver.

Once you've done this, startup the WP CU and go to edit//prefs/video.
There is a place t oselect the capture driver, and you should see CUDOODLE
as one of the selections. Select the cudoodle driver and you should see
the dashed outline of two rectangles on the screen. One of these is the
capture area, the other is the overlay area. Whatever you place inside the
capture area will get sent out as your video in CU. You can use the SNAPPY
preview program to get video from another device and place it on the screen
where you see the capture area, and CU will send out the video fro mthat

With the SOURCE and FORMAT buttons you can move the capture and overlay
areas to different locations on the screen, and select a few other options.
I'm sure this sounds a bit complicated, but it's not. Try it. Play
around with it a little, and you'll see how it works.
