Upstream upgraded from Farsight 0.1 to Farsight 0.2

Farsight is a library that manages codec negotiation in telepathy calls.

Farsight 0.1 is built against GStreamer0.10 Farsight 0.2 is built against GStreamer1.0

Farsight 0.1 is old and broken.

In order for us to use Farsight 0.2 we need GStreamer1.0 which means we need QtGStreamer 1.0.

QtGStreamer 1.0 had the annoying problem of not existing. Diane has ported it \o/


Install QtGStreamer from https://github.com/detrout/qt-gstreamer/ Branch 1.0-proposed.

It's probably best to pass -DQTGSTREAMER_CODEGEN=ON to cmake at the moment.

Recompile TpQt from https://github.com/davidedmundson/telepathy-qt Branch farstream-0.2-port

Recompile ktp-call-ui (normal KDE repo) branch gst-1.0-port

Note: leonhandreke from IRC discovered there's a bug in farstream-0.2 0.2.2 , you'll need at least 0.2.3 for video to work.

Work that needs doing
