Journaling Reflector

I have created a journaling mechanism for CU-SEE-ME.

That is, I have extended the 3.b3 Reflector so that it can
now save and archive an audio/video stream in a file.

I am currently working on the playback mechanism.

I am hampered by the lack of documentation or even comments in
the Reflector as to what is the proper protocol between clients
and hosts. Currently, I am laboriously tracing the path of
messages through the reflector when connections are created.
But I still don't have all the info I need. I have gotton as
far as creating openconnection control packets, and having
my video packets accepted by the reflector.

Alternatively, if I knew the format of the video frame packets,
I could translate the video to .mpeg or quicktime or avi.
But that is also unknown to me.

Can anyone help?

If we are able to get help - I would be very open to having these
extensions includeded in the cuseeme package. I have documented my
changes, and kept the edits to the main CU-SEEME reflector files
minimal (keeping my changes to additional files).
