Linphone[1] , a free SIP (IP-telephony) program version 1.5.0 is outwith a small set of new features:[2]

  • mpeg4 video codec support (using ffmpeg of course )
  • accurate bandwidth management
  • theora support compliant to xiph's draft about theora over RTP usage
  • splashscreen when no webcam detected
  • property box shows video codecs

The last release, v1.4.1, came in September[3] and had these improvements:

  • fix crash when trying to make two calls simultaneously (not supported)
  • fix crash when having no soundcard
