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/
(Diane's work at https://github.com/detrout/qt-gstreamer has been merged into the freedesktop master, so it's probably better to use that version)
Install QtGStreamer from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/qt-gstreamer/
git clone http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/qt-gstreamer/ 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
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.
