If you want to look CU-SeeMe picture on PC with 32-bit multitasking OS
with 32-bit app, you don't have to wait, you can do it now!

Just use NV with Linux OS, and you can get all that, and it has also
support for High Resolution picture in Mac version of CU-SeeMe.

There is also support for ScreenMachineII card, and NV sources are available
so you don't have to keep on begging for drivers, you can write them yourself!

Linux version binary of NV is available
ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/mac/video/nv33b.linux.tar

It also has fixed endianess problems with cuseeme-enconding, patch is
ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/mac/video/nv33bigend.patch

Original nv3.3 beta sources available
ftp:/parcftp.xerox.com/pub/net-research/nv-3.3beta/

ScreenMachineII card support by:
http://www.hrz.uni-giessen.de/~l018/nig.html

When you have Linux up and X window with 8-bit depth just type:
nv -encoding cuseeme -xmitGrey -xmitSize small cu.uwasa.fi

For reflector site it needs just two lines to make it work:
NV-UC-PORT 4444
NV-STREAMS 3
