Re: [Ekiga-devel-list] Ekiga-Engine and Interfaces for Ekiga

Hi all,

I'm a researcher working on E-inclusion. I'm working on the Vital project ( Our aim is to bring the latest technologies to people with disabilities (these can be elders or else). Our platform is based on URC technology ( Once that a "profile" called UI socket has been defined and a target adapter has been developed for it, this technology allows to control targets from any UI.
So, I've found that for a videoconference scenario, Ekiga is an interesting option. Right now, our platform is running on windows, so I'm interested in having a stable version of Ekiga for windows and having a working cross-building environment.
My idea was to start looking at DBUS, as is told in the previous email and looking at Ekiga's source code. My first effort would be to do some basic control and later on to be able to send rtp flows to other UI's and inserting external rtp flows from those UI's to Ekiga.

Indeed this would be the best solution but the possibility to use h.264 codec with ekiga is the maintainer to do it with ekiga.

So in can use the ekiga engine to handle any calls and the webservice can control the engine over DBUS?
And where can I get the ekiga engine?

SIP has the ability if it would be expanded? Or is this a functionality of ekiga itself if anyone writes the functionality to the SIP-Client?

Indeed I need to code a lot :)
