Looking at the empathy website, it says I need two packages installed "gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse and gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg" for the h264 decoder/encoder, however gstreamer0.10-pluigins-ugly-multiverse is not available in deban, so I don't know where to find it.
I tried installing these packages "telepathy-sofiasip telepathy-butterfly telepathy-idle libtelepathy-farsight0 python-tpfarsight" as suggested in a different forum, but no difference. I am running Mint DE on a eeepc t101mt.
I also installed gstreamer0.10-x264 in hope that it would fix the problem, it updated a libx264-104 package as well, but no change. I'm assuming this is for the h.264 encoder needed for gstreamer from the gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse package, where can I find a debian equivalent? I tried installing x264, libffms2-2 packages, hoping they would give me the encoder I need, however it backfired horribly. Now I just get error in empathy that the encoder I'm using is not compatable with the encoder the other person is using. Now I can't even see or hear them, it won't even connect! I tried uninstalling those two packages and the problem persists, I don't know what to do now. Those two packages also updated these packages libpostproc51 libavutil50. Any ideas? I've been working on this for days, and searching the internet like crazy for answers. Thanks
