Description Nicolò Chieffo 2010-05-08 03:31:14 UTC
The video call quality with gmail users is very poor.
While in gmail <-> gmail calls the image is fluid and defined, in empathy <-> gmail the image is really very pixeled and slow
Comment 1 Nicolò Chieffo 2010-05-08 03:35:10 UTC
instead empathy <-> empathy calls are OK.
Comment 2 Simon McVittie 2013-06-03 08:24:36 UTC
Does this still occur? If it does, on which OS are you using Empathy, and which GStreamer video codecs do you have?

I suspect it may have been caused by Empathy and gmail not having many video codecs they could choose between: the Google web interface currently only knows about H.263 and H.264, and until recently, Linux distributions didn't generally ship either H.263 or H.264.
