Re: [Ekiga-list] No video with anything other than h261

Download and install the Freepbx rpm to add a web based gui for configuring Asterisk or if don't use that system for anything else download and install the freepbx ISO, then we can test a few other options. You can also use Linphone on Linux or 3cx (X-lite / BRIA) on windows to test with. We are busy looking at setting up video calling on top of our existing VOIP servers that act as branch PABXs, so we can let you know what we find works for us.

What Asterisk are you running? Is it a default distro like FreePBX? There
are some configs to check, but they are mush easier using the freePBX GUI.

I'm using asterisk 11.8.1 on Slackware 14.1

According to all the info I could find it's setup ok. I've been using
it for some years as a voip relay for my home phone and have just
started delving into video conferencing.

But apart from my asterisk server I only get video on's echo
tester with h261 too.

I don't really know where else to test it.

Only h261 seems to work.

I have checked in Opal ./configure and H.263-H.264 are all 'Yes'.

Asterisk reports:

core show codecs

 200001 video     h261 (H.261 Video)
 200002 video     h263 (H.263 Video)
 200003 video    h263p (H.263+ Video)
 200004 video     h264 (H.264 Video)

So I'm unsure of where the problem is. My asterisk box is on the LAN with
Ekiga box. There is no firewall on the Ekiga box, but the server is DMZ, if
that makes a difference? (I would have thought that that would matter if
server was on a different subnet?)

Any ideas what to check?
