Hello everyone,

I use a
1) Macintosh Performa 6200, 16Mb RAM,
with the Apple TV/Video System (thats all it says on the box/ in the
manual: Apple TV/Video System: watch TV, capture video images and create
multimedia-all on your Macintosh). The shop where i bought the TV/Video
system has assured me this is the 630AV Card; however they have been
wrong before...
2) Connectix QuickCam
3) CU-SeeMe 083b3(PPC)
4) reflector software 4.00b3 on a 486DX2/66 running Linux 1.1.92
the reflector is up most of the time (although it tends to crash a few
times a day) on, and we try to have music playing when up.
5) connected to the Internet through ethernet->fiber

Of course i tried this and this with the above set-up and i cant get CU-SeeMe
to work with a camera. This is what happens.
*the camera+apple videoplayer works fine when no Connectix software is installed
*when Connectix software is installed:
- the apple videoplayer slows down a lot (eg clicking on a button and seeing
the button being clicked two seconds later)
- a completly white screen on the videoplayer window
- when i move the mouse arrow on the white screen the arrow blinks
-->>then i start up CU-SeeMe and i dont get a local video window and cant
send video

Has anyone else tried this/made this setup to work? Last week there was a
concert here and we sent it out live. The sound came from the mixing desk
was good, most people with a high bandwidth connection who tunded in were
quite happy about the sound, but the sight of a stage, from 20 meters with
a quickcam is: a black screen with a large white dot in the middle and sometimes
a (very) little thing moves in the white dot --> you dont know its a
concert and you couldnt know either.
Can anyone help?
