Re: Reflector 4.0b3 and NV

You need someone watching your video on the local reflector at the top
of the BCC or NV chain to have NV, BCC or MCAST forward out the video. In the
readme I mentioned I added the -broadcast mode when starting the reflector
to force the video out to a NV or BCC or MCAST. Note that this forces out all
video of those connected to the top reflector.

We did run into bugs at the Interop show we will be working on next which
1. BCC chain refelectors where getting video but not audio.
2. With a reflector set to only receive video/audio from certain
IP'S and NO-LOCAL-SENDERS it worked fine for CU-SeeMe apps but
the video of lurkers how connected and still where trying to send
video was forwarded out NV.

3. Crashed a few times :-(
