+The latest version (3.01 ?) of Cornell University's CU-SeeMe reflector

Version 3b3 as far as I know.

+will 'listen' for packets (audio and video) on a specified multicast
+address and then reflect them in a unicast manner to any connected
+CU-SeeMe clients. So it does exactly what you both want. It's all in the
+reflector README.

However, the video on that multicast address from an mbone session
most likely will not be in CuSeeMe format. I believe the original
poster was suggesting a Kluge where he was displaying the non-cuseeme
format video on the screen, and then using screen grab with another
transmitter to feed it in CuSeeMe format into the reflector. Does anyone
have a better way of doing this, or are there any plans for the reflector
to handle the conversion?
