Re: Problems when sending video (hardware?)

We're having very much the similar kind of problems:

ICL s450/100 + mach64 graphics card
Fast FPS 60 video capture card (IRQ 10 though)
Windows 95 installed

Video input for CU-SeeMe local window is all noise and doesn't even show
little camera icon in the status bar, but prefers to stay open anyhow. It
also seems to show that it's transmitting something...
Has anyone been successful with this video card?

In the cuseeme.ini should there be somekind of settings for the video
(like the audio settings)? If so, could some one send an example, please?

Appreciate any insights! Thanks in advance!
