You should have gotten an adapter cable for the camera. It hooks up in the
back of the computer in the S-video input port. Attach the other end to the
camera with RCA cables. If your camera has audio you can hook it to the mic
plug in the back, or use the microphone that came with the computer.

BEFORE LAUNCH Be sure the screen is switched to a resolution that
includes 16 grays (with the Monitors control panel). Settings that
will work are: 16 grays, 256 grays, 256 colors, thousands of colors,
millions of colors. On AV Macintoshes, you may need to reduce
resolution to be able to digitize and send video. You may need to
turn off GeoPort devices, speech recognition, etc. and set sound
parameters to lower sampling rates to be able to use CU-SeeMe audio.

I just clicked on the icon & the program started. When you turn on the
camera, the video comes on in the video window.

To connect to someone go to "conference" in the top menu & "connect" in the
submenu and put their IP address in the "IP Address" box. I haven't gone to
a reflector yet.

Let me know how it works!
