I have put a Windows executable of pre-3.3.0 Ekiga at

Thanks very much Eugen. I have installed your .exe on the system in question
(Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit).
I don't believe it has resolved the freezing issue, but I have made the
The freezing is much, much more easy to induce with low "Maximum video
bitrate" settings in the Ekiga client. All my tweaking involved adjusting the
bitrate, while leaving the "Picture Quality" slider parked at maximum frame
rate (i.e all the way to the right).
1) With "Maximum video bitrate" set to 64Kb/s, the video will freeze with very
slight movement, more often than not it will freeze as soon as the call is
2) With "Maximum video bitrate" set to 1024Kb/s, I can reproduce the behaviour
exhibited in my original video above, as that was what the settings were when
the video was recorded.
3) With "Maximum video bitrate" set to a high number, e.g 3072Kb/s, then it
becomes very difficult to freeze the video deliberately; lots of flailing
around in front of the camera to induce a freeze (it can still be done however).
Settings above ~4000Kb/s seem to revert to the behaviour observed when set to
Just another note that I can also reproduce this behaviour identically on
Windows XP Professional SP3, using the stable Ekiga 3.2.7.
The problem is that I have not yet tested debugging crashes/freezes on
Windows... There is some info at
but I think it is obsolete. There is someone who work on this. In the
meantime, please post a bug report with this issue, so that we do not
