- The technical goal of this partnership is to implement a video layer in SFLphone to allow *video calls* and *video conferencing*. It is an interesting challenge because videoconference is not much implemented in softphones yet. The first step consists in implementing peer-to-peer video calls.

  * Local video capture (video4linux2 driver) is compressed and shipped through RTP packets.
  * In the same time, the incoming video stream (in RTP packets also) is decompressed and displayed.

  * The visualization framework should be flexible and should allow user parametrization. 3D API OpenGL should be used.
