Video call support (H.263 and H.263+)

The Com.X platform may be configured to support video calls. Care should be taken
to evaluate potential performance impacts of video codec translation on the platform
in question.

To enable video support:

Add the following to the [general] section of /etc/asterisk/sip.conf:

videosupport=yes

For each extension/trunk on which video calling is required, select h263 or h264 from the extension’s codec list

Ensure that all non-managed SIP phones that take part in video calls have these codecs included in
their codec list.
