CUSEEME uses the "8-bit palettized" option on the PC PrimeTime...while the
WaveWatcherTV-II offers only the "YUV" setting. PrimeTime has both...as
well as three other compression formats.....and the PrimeTime's YUV option
performed EXACTLY as the WaveWatcherTV-II's did....no video at all. But, a
quick change to the 8-bit option and POOF...instand video.

Perhaps it would be a simple software upgrade to allow the WaveWatcherTV-II
to operate in 8-bit mode.
