Re: Scriptable Maven or CU-SeeMe?

I agree. I think that scriptability and recordability of an application
is something that developers should strongly consider doing even if they
can not immediately find a need for it.

With Cu-SeeMe/Applescript/AppleEvent you could
* Capture a frame of live video from a CU-SeeMe client for display in
the Web without having to do really any development.

* Capture a stream of audio from the feed or

* Capture an entier movie transcript and save it for displaying in a
different application upon demand. (This assumes that Cu-SeeMe would be
like the Apple QuickTime based Movie Talk which can capture multi-track
Quicktime movies of sessions).

Of course, I am not volunteering to program the applescripts or
appleevents for Cu-SeeMe - just putting in a feature request!
