Difference in vid speeds between White Pine and Cornell

Here's a curiosity I'm hoping the knowledgeable participants in this
list can explain.

I've noticed a real difference on some refs between the speed of videos
I receive using Cornell 1.0 and White Pine 3.1.1 (build 16). For
example, logged on to a ref last night (listed as an eref1.07b9) with
Cornell, and vids were extremely slow, almost frozen. Immediately
afterward I tried White Pine Cu-SeeMe and they were extremely
fast--about the best I've seen. I've experienced this on a number of
occaisions. I'm using the same codec with both (the White Pine m-jpeg)
and all other settings are the same.

Any ideas why this would happen. I much prefer Cornell 1.0, but it's not
much fun when it produces slower vids. This isn't always the case, but
often enough that I notice it.
