I have to communicate through H323 with h263-1998 codec ( to join a

I have installed ekiga 3.2.7 on my ubuntu maverick (Dell precision
M2400), it works fine but displays only codec H261 and Theora. I have
read informations on this page
http://wiki.ekiga.org/index.php/HowTo_install_Ekiga_packages but it
seems to be outdated.
I have tried many things including full rebuild of latest version but
Does anybody have a solution or any track to follow.
Your case is not simple. First, because there are some bug reports
about H323 not working in ekiga in some cases, see bugzilla.
Also, because for these non-free codecs you need tom compile ffmpeg
yourself, because distributions strip them out.
Finally, because h263-1998 crashes when using ffmpeg last version, see
bugzilla again (bug for H263); however, if you choose a repository for
ffmpeg of about 1.5 years ago, it should work, see the same bug report.
Are you motivated to test it?
