Solution to no video update on wmcap.exe
Mon Jun 30 21:52:00 2003
I pulled the software as you suggested and installed ultravnc and the video
driver on my server, a IBM T30 laptop. Rebooted. Installed ultravnc on
the client and it all works. The client, an old 450 MHz Compaq, is running
50% real time to keep up, but the video quality and motion are
outstanding. I am using ADC's USB 2.0 Camera which (they say) provides
about 400 MHz video stream.
I have also tried using my T30 as the server and a more modern PC in a
network connection across the country and my T30 ran about 50% load while
the client ran about 30%, again excellent video sharpness and motion. The
load on the server increases with the size of the video window while the
load on the client stays fairly steady.
Thanks again for the solution,
