I don't know how easy it would be to get a cgi-bin to connect up with
a reflector because I don't know of anything on unix that connects to
cu-see-me. The reflectors run on unix but do the clients? Also,
invoking a client from a cgi-bin script would be kind of wasteful of

Instead you need cu-see-me running on a PC full time. It has to be
connected to a reflector. Then write a script to take a screen shot
and trim it down and ftp it to your web site or just save it on your
PC's hard disk and have a web deamon running and reference the image
from your home page.

Also I believe there was some information posted about forcing some
video conferencing software to output a pict to a file?... on the
MacScript or MacPerl list...? I'll scan my old e-mail and see what I
can come up with but no guarantees :-) No I think it was forcing the
Connectix software to do that... yeah that must have been it.
