Here's the scoop.

Current public versions of CU-SeeMe/Mac do not support internal QuickCam Mic.
If you have both a Apple Mic and QuickCam Mic attached, it's using the
Apple Mic no matter what you've selected in your sound control panel.

The problem has been resolved (thanks go to Larry at Cornell) and will be
available soon. I believe it will also require a new QuickCam Mic driver as

Stay tuned.
