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 
mailing list.

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.
