Thanks for your answer,
1/ my best info is the following
3. Far-End Camera Control Protocol This simple protocol is based on ITU-T H.281[ITU.281] frames carried in ITU-T H.224 packets in an RTP/UDP channel. H.323 annex Q specifies how to build the RTP packets from the H.224 packets. Using far end camera control protocol in point-to-point calls and multipoint calls for packet-switch networks is described in H.323, annex Q.http://www.itu.int/rec/dologin_pub.asp?lang=e&id=T-REC-H.323-200606-I!!PDF-E&type=items
while the need is not really all H281 (that drives a cam, e.g. : zoom, pan, tilt) but only keyboard (arrows, alphanumeric, ..) infos (refered as 3.8)
2/ In OPAL http://www.opalvoip.org (see http://www.opalvoip.org/wiki/index.php?n=Main.H323Feaures) yes H.281/H.224 seems supported
3/ adding support in the gui would not be that hard.
Yes i guess
3.1/ it is a button that's set/unset far-end and then a pipe from the keyboard to the H281 channel
for the purpose to connect to visio server this is it;
If (well in order to do the job once) remote camera control is wished (notice that we do not need the following for the purpose of connect to visio server)
3.2/ a.k.o. convention for zoom (page-up/page-down ?), pan/tilt (using arrows ?) + an additional menu for : source selection (main cam / aux / doc cam / vcr / pc) ; camera presets (for camera tracking from 0 to 9) ; remote snapshot
does it helps ?

We thus cannot use ekiga anymore yet. Does ekiga plan to have this done? If not, how complex would it be to contribute (i.e. ask one programmer to do it with/for you) ?
