As an ISP in Australia, I've got users with all kinds of platforms
running various versions of CUSEEME between each other, and to places all
around the world. In our own office, we run CUSM on OS/2, Mac, Windows
3.11, Windows95 and WindowsNT. The cameras we've used so far (except on
the mac) have been parallel-interface cameras, so there is no problem.
The Mac needs to know what the camera is, but once digitized, it's all
just numbers and PAL/NTSC/Secam etc becomes irrelevant. It just works.
