[Ekiga-devel-list] [Linux] Ekiga evolution


I worked on my own to see how to have a more up to date version of ekiga.
For Gtk, there is no major problem to use gtk+3 for Linux or windows.
For Opal there is a MAJOR problem that exists even now.
Opal (x_10 branch) codecs (H264, MPEG4, H263+) use libav. BUT they use it through dyna. Checking libavcodec with nm shows that all ffmpeg functions are not there. And then, dyna dlopens well library but dlsym fail (avinit - not important-, and more). HD codecs are unusable with libav. ffmpeg is more compliant. It in easy to check it with ekiga -d 4 and searching link keyword".

I checked x_12 branches of opal and ptlib to see if they are usable. They are with ffmpeg without any modification. For ekiga itself, some evolutions can be easily handled but I have not a good knowledge of the ekiga code. Some errors remain especially in opal-call-manager.cxx.

Let me know if you want more information or formal work

Best regards
