Well, according to the responses, it looks like the MediaVision ProMovie
Studio doesn't work with CU-SeeMe. I thought I would just mention this in
case anyone was on their way out to purchase one. I guess I don't
understand the documentation, it says ANY video capture board that supports
Video for Windows and supports uncompressed 8 bit palletized images will
work. So, it looks like the only sure thing to do is to get in touch with
Creative Labs about their Video Blaster (someone mentioned to me that the
Video Spigot was being discontinued.)

By the way, is there a list of video capture boards known to work with CU
(other than the ones mentioned in documentation?) I find it hard to believe
that someone hasn't already compiled a list of known working boards, or are
the two listed really all that do work! Certainly someone out there is
using something other than a Creative Labs board?
