Re: PC QuickCam not working w/cuseeme

The problem is that it does not recognize subscripts in the system.ini
file yet so the entry that is assigned to:

msvideo: quickcam.drv

will work but not

msvideo1: quickcam.drv

What I do for now is comment out the device I don't want to use and
set the one I do want to use to the msvideo: option eg:

; msvideo: some.drv
msvideo: quickcam.drv

we are working on allowing you to sellect from a list of video choices like the
audio device which will be in our Comercial Beta and Release...
