[AG-TECH] Recording own audio/video locally with AGVCR

	Hi Ben,

	For recording yourself, you just need to get VIC and RAT to transmit, 
so you'll need to go into the options in VIC and select 'Configure on 
Transmit' and then check the 'Transmit' box. After you're transmitting, 
boost your quality and bitrate sliders to something pleasing and you 
should be off and running.
	If you have problems getting AGVCR to receive packets via localhost, as 
has happened some times, then you can always use a multicast address 
(pick something like 239.1.x.x (where .x is greater than 1) and set your 
TTL to 1 so you don't end up broadcasting across the internet. Pick a 
suitable port number too. If you connect VIC and RAT to those addresses 
and you see other people on there then choose another address. Or you 
could hang around and chat to them, maybe they're trying to record 
themselves too...
	One other way is to either book a venue or use a local venue server and 
record yourself that way by joining the venue and letting the AG start 
the tools and run AGVCR from that venue.

	I know I need to get the AGVCR website running properly again with its 
FAQ. I'll try doing that some time :)
