Webcamoid 6.0.0, How it will look like?

Four months has passed since the last post, so, what is the current development status of Webcamoid 6.x series? Well it looks this:

1 oct. 2014

Released Webcamoid 5.1.0 and going to the next step.

Yesterday, I've released Webcamoid 5.1.0. This release includes many improvements and changes, the most important changes are:
  • From now on, Webcamod will be developed using Qt5. Qt4 can be considered as an obsolete technology.
  • Dependency reduction. This makes the program easy to port to many platforms with minimal effort, reduces the bugs caused by 3rd-party libraries, and reduces the disk usage.
  • Webcamoid born as a KDE plasmoid, but since KDE is in transition from Qt4 to Qt5, and Qt5 plugins aren't compatible with Qt4, I must remove the plasmoid. The development and survival of Webcamoid is a priority.
  • Webcamoid for Windows is near. Only a few patches are needed. This is necessary because Webcamoid adoption in GNU/Linux is not going so well (people seems not to be interested and I don't know why), and this strategy can give a boost to the project.
And now let's see what comes for the next release (Webcamoid 6.0.0).

Del porqué Firefox siempre fue y será el mejor

Siendo yo usuario de Software Libre suelo ser bastante quisquilloso a la hora de elegir mi colección de software personal. Como primera condición inapelable para la elección de mis programas, es la de elegir sólo programas de licencias libres y en última instancia, si y solo si no existiera ningún programa o conjunto de programas libres que haga la tarea que estoy buscando, procedo a utilizar el programa privativo, siempre teniendo la precaución de aislarlo del resto del sistema (pej. en una maquina virtual).

En cuanto a navegadores web la cosa se complica bastante. Sólo existen 2 únicas opciones: Firefox y Chromium, y el resto de los navegadores son simplemente mediocres basados en mi criterio personal. ¿Pero qué tiene Firefox que no tenga ningún otro? Eso es lo que voy a mostrar ahora mismo.

Many people complains that they can hear the audio in VoipTest, but they doesn't receives the video signal, this occurs because they doesn't not compiles QXmpp with Speex, Theora and Vpx codecs.
So, in this post I will teach you how to compile QXmpp with full codec support in Windows :)
