Re: [Ekiga-devel-list] High resolutions with H.264

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone contributing to developing this
great application and I hope to be able to contribute myself in the near
future. A few weeks ago, I namely started working on a students project,
which consists in upgrading Ekiga to permit videoconferencing at higher
resolutions (960x720 or above) over a LAN or a fiber optic connection. In
order to achieve this goal, I decided to focus on the recently added CELT
codec and the H.264 codec for audio and video transmission since they turn
out to provide best results.


Very interesting analysis.  Unfortunately, I cannot help much...

Just a question: wouldn't be better to use the free theora codec instead of the non-free h264 (unavailable on some gnu/linux distributions)? Also, I have done some *empirical* tests with ekiga and theora turned out to be a bit better than h264 at 640x480 (still I am not specialist of codecs).
