Generally, two or more different "audio" software programs may not
share one audio device (one speaker, one microphone). The same for
video conferencing software.

If You really want to load both, one must be configured *not* to
use the standard audio input and output - in most cases, this is
impossible. Use a mIRC chat software instead of PowWow, or
see on my page

With tools like EmulLive,Ispy, Webcom and especially WebCast lite,
You may broadcast video *without* audio, so no probs with PowWow !!
With Webcast Lite, the receiver just needs the (Netscape) browser,
no plugin or external software must be loaded !
