Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

The maintainer has already decided the official package will not have audio and video support. Compile yourself from ABS.

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

install intltool and farsight2 and then modify the pidgin PKGBUILD by adding --enable-vv to the ./configure

As long as farsight2 is installed, the ./configure script will detect it and automatically enable video & voice.

Has anyone gotten it to work yet?

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

Its working for me, farsight2 installed before the makepkg.

The functionality itself is still a bit buggy with gtalk though.

Any word on how or if it works with Jabber accounts?

Sorry, no Jabber account (unless you count gtalk) here

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

Perfect!, I've created the package from ABS.  I've modified PKGBUILD with --enable-vv and I've enable "Voice and Video". But I try to chat with gtalk user (XMPP protocol) and the options of "medium" are disabled. I can't to select options, they are inactive.

Any ideas?.

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

I compiled pidgin from ABS (2.6.1 and 2.6.2 version) and tried to call somebody with Google talk, but every time I'm trying to call I get the follows:

(17:15:18) Error creating session: Could not create the valve element
(17:15:18) Error adding stream.
(17:15:18) The call has been terminated.

Solution from ubuntu forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p= … stcount=93 doesn't work. Does anybody have the same problem? Any possible solutons?

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

So far, I haven't had anyone on Google Talk to try it out with.  Nor Jabber because the people I know using Jabber aren't using Pidgin 2.6.2 yet.

However, I have been able to voice chat myself (not sure if that's just narcissistic or schizophrenic) either direction, GTalk -> Jabber & Jabber -> GTalk, but video chat shows the initial window and after accepting, Pidgin quits.  I have also tried multiple machines on the same network.  Not able to create a chat that way at all.

I found a solution - I didn't have gstreamer0.10-good and gstreamer0.10-bad, so I've just installed them and now pidgin works well. I can call to jabber users, but I didn't try to call to gtalk users, gonna test it tomorrow.

Update: Everything works: jabber-to-jabber (pidgin2pidgin, both video and voice calls), Gtalk to pidgin and pidgin to Gtalk (both video and voice calls). Olalala! :-)

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

Does this still reply or is vv enabled by default at this point? I looked in the PKGBUILD in my ABS directory, and it says nothing about --disable-vv...  My options for audio, video, and audio+video chats always seem to be grayed out though.

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

@piezoelectric, it works. Make sure you have the correct packages installed (farsight2 and some gstreamer stuff).

Yeah, I had farsight2 as a dependency to pidgin. I needed gstreamer0.10-bad installed manually though.

Just an FYI to anyone who is wondering, gstreamer-properties can be used to select which audio and video devices pidgin uses.

I cannot find gstreamer-properties. What package provides that?

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

I have a question:

Already having the option "Media -> Video call, Audio call, etc." means that my Pidgin was compiled with webcam support?

When I want to enabled it, I get this message on the chat window:

"Error creating conference".

(I also have one plugin for webcam settings)

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

I've installed farsight2, gnome-media and gstreamer0.10-bad but my options for audio, video, and audio+video chats still grayed out.

Already configure audio, video device in gstreamer-properties and Voice/Video settings in pidgin.

Am I missing anything?

Re: Pidgin 2.6 has voice and video support YEAH!!!

You probably need all the gstreamer packages. I recall someone a few days back needed either -good or -plugins-good.
