    :

    Problems and solutions:

    The QuickCam is connected to a manual switch box ($15) and I have had no problems with it, you can even switch the input and nothing crashes, you just get a blank screen. The only thing is that CU-SeeMe seems to run slower when the QuickCam is not switched on.

    Problems and solutions:

    Only problem is that the PPC doesn’t work with

    the old style microphones that shippped with the original macs, so you must use the Quickcam mic.

    14.4 MacPPP 2.0.1 or 14.4 MacSLIP 1.0

    Problems and solutions:

    Only problem is that I must make AppleTalk inactive while using camera (it competes for serial ports).

    Problem has been FIXED with QuickCam Updater 1.0.2a available on most MAC INFO web pages or via CD from Connectix (registered users).

    only problem is a 14.4 SLIP connection…sigh, upgrading to 28.8 to see if there is change, –problems using Talk feature with my connection… either the program crashes or sometimes the mac –also problems making pt-pt connection from hardwire connection to my home connected w/ MacSLIP. (M. Sattler noted that MacSLIP might be to blame, suggested InterSLIP, but haven’t had time to configure everything suitably.)

    Name/Version of TCP/IP Driver : MacTCP 2.0.4

    Type of Internet connection

    : Modem 19.2 Global Village Mercury

    Powerport

    Problems and solutions:

    Powerbook 180cs have an annoying habit: they spin down the HD whenever the internal microphone is being used (to minimize background noise from the drive).

    This is OK when recording a sound as a system beep, but using CU-SeeMe with the HD constantly spinning down, then up, then down is frustrating.

    The solution? Simple: use the QuickCam as the microphone – it slows down the frame rate a bit, but not as much as spinning up/down the HD.

    (Alternately, an external mic other than the QuickCam may work, but I haven’t gotten around to checking)
