Re: [Ekiga-list] nikolai: Wanted to know if it was okay to use ekiga 3.2.7 over my current 3.2.6

Thank you for your quick response. Let me first describe a few things so we both understand the environment of use.

Video Issue:
I first set up Ekiga back in March, 2010 on a 64 AMD machine that has Ubuntu 10.04. Installed it as I had need for Voice/Video for family visiting out of state. I set up two of these machines here in my home office. Have a Asterisk PBX set up in my house for personal use. First machine I setup for test to see how well it communicated using Ekiga's network without my PBX. Could get it to register, but never could get it to do the echo test or other test. Was able to make a few phone calls to/from friends who use Ekiga, but even doing that it would not pass video. It sees the camera, but no out video and would not receive video. Have yet to get video working. Have all ports open in router operating on ADSL Line. Same when using on my T1 Line. Installed Ekiga on second machine and tried doing video just on in-house PBX network, both wire/wireless, still no go. Same after upgrading to 3.2.7. I have even tried to use one machine with Ekiga and the other with X-Lite, still no video. Have tried using video after setting up with configuration assistant and by doing it manually, no go on both. I even broke down and did a no-no in my house and got a Windows Machine running XP from a friend downloaded Ekiga for Windows XP, same probs, no video. Infact, on the Windows Machine the only camera that I could get to work was an OLD EarthLink/Sprint camera I had here. I tried my HP Delux & Eye Toy Camera (both of which work the Linux boxes) after installing all drivers and Ekiga wouldn't work with them, kept giving error notices.

Tool Bar Issue:
When looking through toolbar found that the following wasn't available:
Under Chat:  When call in progress,  "Transfer Call", "Suspend Video" are not accessible.
Under View: In the Video/Picture selections ONLY "Local Video" is available and in the bottom half of that same view box "Normal Size" & "Full Screen" are not accessible.

I must say in all defense to Ekiga, I like the program, if I could get it to pass video I would like it a great deal more. This program has a bright future as far as I am concerned, but for now, I'm stuck having to use an on-line service for seeing my grand kids.
