The ip address 127.0.0.1 is the tcp/ip loopback address. The video that you
send while connected to that address does not really go out to the internet.
It is looped-back from within your system so it is really not appropriate to
compare the image quality that you get from that.

Look for a reflector that has a self-reflect conference id that you can
connect to. That way your video goes out to the reflector and gets sent back
to you.

Also, comparing video received from a reflector with video from software
like connectix videophone or other point-to-point software is an apples and
oranges thing. Better to compare it with CUSEEME video received from a DC.
