[asterisk-users] Does Asterisk 1.8. Supports Video Calls

"core show codecs" does not show VP8 on my Asterisk 11.  I don't recall why we are not using H.264.  The novelty wore off long ago and few of our staff use video calling anymore.

Thanks Eric. The obvious difference is that your co-worker was using 
H.263/H.263p while Bria uses H.264 or VP8. videosupport=yes was present 
in my sip.conf so it might be the codec. Time for more tinkering.
