About

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/

Building

Install QtGStreamer from https://github.com/detrout/qt-gstreamer/ Branch 1.0-proposed. (The new code is not master)

git clone https://github.com/detrout/qt-gstreamer.git
git checkout -b 1.0-proposed origin/1.0-proposed
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DQTGSTREAMER_CODEGEN=ON -DQTGSTREAMER_TESTS=ON ..
make

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.

Checking you've done it right

Run

ldd /opt/kde4/lib/kde4/libexec/ktp-call-ui | grep -i gstre

and make sure everything is at 1.0.

If you see 0.10, you've done it wrong.

Work that needs doing
