Description George Kiagiadakis 2012-07-11 10:20:02 UTC
According to the spec:

The RequestableChannelClasses for Call1 channels can be:
[( Fixed = { ...ChannelType: ...Call1,
            ...TargetHandleType: Contact,
            ...InitialVideo: True
  Allowed = [ ...InitialVideoName,
( Fixed = { ...ChannelType: ...Call1,
            ...TargetHandleType: Contact,
            ...InitialAudio: True
  Allowed = [ ...InitialAudioName,
Clients aren't allowed to make outgoing calls that have neither initial audio nor initial video. Clearly, CMs which don't support video should leave out the first class and omit InitialVideo from the second class, and vice versa for CMs without audio support.

Apparently gabble advertises just:

org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Channel.TargetHandleType u=1
org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Channel.ChannelType s=org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Channel.Type.Call1

...which is not correct according to the spec, as the fixed properties do not contain Initial{Audio,Video}. This currently breaks tp-qt's capabilities detection, which follows the spec.

Contact capabilities are apparently also wrong in the same way.
Comment 2 George Kiagiadakis 2012-11-16 15:39:06 UTC
Ping? Any thoughts on this one?

I wrote the test case and then started fixing Gabble and then lost the will to live.
