This intrigues me. I've recently downloaded MS NetMeeting, Beta 2.0 and
used it for the first time last night to talk with a friend. First of
all, she reported the video was not only acceptable with good color and
adequate motion (this is adjustable for speed vs. quality) but both of
us thought the audio was at least as good as I-Phone. Granted, she was
not sending video but between us we had my video up, adequate audio, the
ICQ chat window and were using Pirch on IRC.

I'm wondering why audio continues to be so problematic with CUSeeMe when
it seems to work fine simultaneously with the video with NetMeeting.
Does MS know something White Pine and Cornell don't? Is the fact that
NetMeeting is standards based the key?

Just curious.
