The answer is very simple, the audio part of Windows CuSeeMe is new, in contrast
to the Mac platform. There are a lot of bugs in the Windows version. Normally
28.8 Kb/s should be enough for audio send/receive if you select Delta Mod.
During the last weeks, participants of this mailing list were complaining about
the Windows CuSeeMe (not only about the audio part). I think, the Cornell folks
have a lot to do to get a stable version .
