You didn't mention what type of system you're using (processor speed, RAM,
etc) or what kind of capture card/camera you have (if any). My only guess
is that you either lack the processing power required (P-100 with 16 megs
ram I believe for 3.1) or your capture card/camera (Quickcam) could be
slowing it down. I know when I used to use 3.1 with a Quickcam, it slowed
my computer down a bit, but never as slow as yours it seems.

If your other capture card/camera programs run fine (Quickpict for the
Quickcam for example), then my guess is it's just the overhead of the 3.1
version. Give the Cornell version a shot and see if it's just as slow.
http://cu-seeme.cornell.edu. That would eliminate the potential problems
with rendering video.
