If you connect to an MCU, there is only _one_ a/v connection, the one between 
your GM and MCU. The MCU combines the streams from the other participants.

You can run an MCU and GM on the same computer. Make sure that GM does not use 
port 1720 as listening_port for incoming connections, else the MCU wont be 
able to receive any incoming connections. Changing the listening port for GM 
can be done via gconf-editor.

There are two versions of OpenMCU, the older one supports video, but sometimes 
crashes. The newer one does not support video (yet), but should be more
