It is pretty much useless, it's just avoids the crash. I don't even understand 
why the Opal guys have committed it, since I made it clear to them that 
somebody with knowledge of that piece of code should check the underlying 

After testing with the webcam, I found that H263 is not usable because the 
context initialisation is still broken in Opal which doesn't get fixed with 
that patch (the picture remains stuck). You could well just do rm -f 
/usr/lib/opal-3.8.3/codecs/video/ and get at the 
same point almost.

Finally, the bug where you posted the patch is not the same as the bug that I 
am experiencing. It's a completely different code path (with the only thing in 
common that both are related to H263).

You shouldn't worry about this problem, the Opal guys need to look after it. 
It's not a bug in Ekiga, it's either something to do with Opal or ffmpeg...
