Newbie having system crashes.

Hi Guys,

This can probably be answered with an address of faq, although I've scoured
the web pages.

I downloaded the Cornell version. Ran it, received video, got all excited,
went out and bought a Connectix camera. Then got back online, configured my
video, it ran for a few minutes, then crashed. It crashed in such a way
that my ppp was broken, and my modem was frozen. I have an internal modem,
so this meant a cold boot for my system.

My computer is Pentium 75 with 24 meg of RAM, a 28.8 modem, I'm running the
win '95 PPP socket and have not had any problems running anything else on it.

So, I searched the web pages and found the white Pines version. Downloaded
that. It was the same problem. With some experimenting, I found that if I
freeze frame my video output I don't crash. I also found I can get audio if
I set it to 2.4 transmission rate. Receiving video doesn't seem to be a
problem, just sending it.

I guess I have some setting wrong, but don't know which one.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,
John Leone
