Bonjour Laurent,

Sorry, but don't expect much from CU's audio capabilities, particularly at
28.8. I have used ECU at 28.8, and ISDN, with rather disappointing results.
Yesterday for the first time I used a T1-(Internet)-T1 connection (1.5mbps)
and at that speed audio was reasonable, not great but reasonable.

At much lower speeds I have had better results using Internet Phone. You
might try to use CU for video and (simultaneously) IPhone for audio. The
combination works rather well most times.

Also, you will avoid the "Push to Talk" chore of ECU-PC in this situation.
