An important drawback of H.261 as MTI is interop with existing installed
base. Very old conferencing systems and products may still have it since
its easier to keep the code than delete it, but new platforms in the last
few years will not have H.261.

I also disagree with the assertion that H.261 video is better than audio
only. Video quality matters and I believe the higher quality we've been
able to achieve in recent years due to the combo of better tech (ala H.264)
along with faster networks is a material factor in the acceptance of video
by end users. I think folks writing the apps should decide whether lousy
video is good enough, and for business usage the answer is no.

Finally, don't overestimate the typical upstream bandwidth that is
available to users across the Internet. Many of us here on this list
probably have nice speedy high speed connections (I have fiber with 85/35
service) and that is not the norm for the rest of the world.
