You're problem is probably caused by the fact that the QuickCam VC does NOT
support sending of b/w video, and Cornell CU-SeeMe 0.92b2 ONLY supports b/w
video. That is why you are not transmitting video.

You may want to try out the latest White Pine CUSeeMe (currently version, which is available at If you would rather
use freeware (even if it doesn't come with tech support), try out the latest
Cornell Color 1.0, which Bill Woodland has graciously posted at

Each program has it's strong points, but I'm not gonna comment since I get
bashed every time I DO comment.

Hope this helps you out....
