Description

Hi! I'm really glad you've managed to package linphone. Building this is a real mess :/.

One thing I've noticed is that recording phone calls doesn't work. I looked into the log and it says:
ERROR Cannot record in mkv format, not supported in this build.

Would it be achievable for you to build it with mkv support?

mkv is a video format BTW - are there any other formats
to choose from?

it's good to see that there's interest in linphone, it was hard to achieve building it

Well, someone in GitHub also asked me for the 264 plugin :P
The thing is that I'm not sure how to do this, but I'll do some research when possible. Pull requests and patches are welcomed, specially as I won't have much time these months.

searching the AUR for 'linphone', the most up-voted package is 'linphone-plugin-msx264' (more votes than linphone itself actually)

linphone-plugin-msx264 "Linphone plugin that enables H.264 video codec"

i dont know why the GUI would offer that option, if it is not standard though

I looked through the GUI and ~/.config/linphone and I couldn't find anything. I asked the upstream on their mailing list and no one replied yet.
