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


thanks for your remarks. Well, I implemented some changes to the Theora
plugin in Opal so that I am now able to do have Ekiga videoconferencing
sessions at resolution of 960x720 pixels. So far, I could not use Theora
with higher resolutions since it seems that the maximal resolution is set at
1280x720. Well, I'm working on it but nevertheless, I would definitely
prefere using H.264 because of its apparent superior quality outputs (though
I have not compared them myself):

So, any inputs concerning H.264 would still be appreciated.
