Video Capture Cards

Hi lurchers,

Many people have asked me for these lists of video capture cards that "work" or "do not work" with CU-SeeMe for Windows. Windows users seem to have the biggest problem with finding useable video capture cards (and yes, I'm somewhat of a Mac bigot :) ) - no flames pleeeeeaaaaassssse!

Anyway, following are 2 lists compiled by different people at different times. These are the latest copies I have received via the CU-SeeMe mailing list.

The first list was compiled by : Albert Foo (albert@more.net)
The second list was compiled by: Steven Sitt <sittsh@panix.com>

Please o please direct your inquiries concerning these lists to them.
They may wish to respond listwise to let us know the current status of their lists (you guys out there still?)

Also, these lists will change as CU-SeeMe matures, so please be patient with Cornell and White Pine Software as they work on their releases - thanks.

However, White Pine is researching which video cards it wishes to support (we're looking at boards which are low cost and keep end users happy). Suggestions welcome.

Mr. Sattler (are you there??), please add these lists to your CU-SeeMe Web page (if you haven't already) in "your spare time" (ha, ha, ha, guffaw, guffaw). If the authors don't mind, it'd be nice if we gave them credit as being keepers of the Windows video capture card lists.

CU later,

Bill

Standard Disclaimer: Obviously these lists may not be gospel. Please do NOT base your purchasing decisions on these lists only. Perform some further research - contact people using them, call the manufacturor, get an updated list, do your homework :)

work with cu-seeme for windows. I have not tested them myself
so don't depend to heavily on it check it out first. This list
was compiled using two other lists and many answers to my email
on the cu-seeme mailing list. (included at end of this list)

Items marked with ***** are listed as working and not working.
I'm just not to sure which way they should be listed so I listed
it both ways.

Please help me keep this list up to date be sure to read my
email at the bottom of this list. Please please try to include
the exact model numbers in you email.

I am compiling a list of video capture boards that work or do

with a video capture board, please send me a message that
includes the brand and exact model number of the video capture
board you have used, and any other remarks about using it with
cu-seeme for windows. Also please send me a list of video
capture boards that do not work with cu-seeme so that I can
include them in my list. I would also like to include pcmcia
video capture cards.

Thank You
