Thanks for the information. I'll be sure to check it out.
Not to get TOO off topic, since I should probably post this to the ovic
mailing list, but I did download the Beta ovic this morning and tried to
get it running with a videum video capture card (on win2k) but all I
could get was a pitch black in the ovic window display (and it was being
transmitted too). I didn't have too much time to troubleshoot it, so it
might be something trivial. I don't have much experience with the videum
capture cards since the system it was installed was installed by InSors.
If I continue to have issues I'll try to post something on the other
Anyway I thought I might mention it anyhow in case you knew anything
concerning that piece of hardware. Thanks again for the tip on modifying
the vic preferences.
