    Yes. It's an Asterisk function not an "Elastix" function...
    in sip.conf make sure you have
    [general]
    videosupport=yes

    and take a look at ooh323.conf.sample in your asterisk dir. and change for your setup. Not sure if you even need to change that, it may just work after first sip.conf change...???

    Of course you will need 2 video capable devices, IP Phones or EyeBeam/Bria
    (makers of x-lite, from Counterpath)

    Beyond that, I'm not sure of any of this, because even as of * 1.4 video conferenceing is still in infancy. * 1.6 may have better codec support etc...

    I hope that helps any...

    If you want to set video support, you will need to edit /etc/asterisk/sip_general_custom.conf
    and add the following lines:
    Code:
    videosupport=yes
    maxcallbitrate=384
    
    allow=h261
    allow=h263
    allow=h263p
    allow=h264
    
    Then execute from the shell:
    asterisk -rx "reload"

    I edited the file, but my video was not working. The softphone connects and definitely recognizes that there is video and can be sent, but when I try sending the video, x-lite crashes. Any ideas what might have been the cause?
