Disabling H.264 for VT Advantage (in Callmanager/regedit)

Does anyone know how to disable H.264 video calls from within Callmanager 5.1? Or via a registry setting?

I've just deployed 30+ cameras and software, but have now found an issue with our Codian MCU and H.264 - we get 1 way video.

The fault seems to be in the Codian, but in the mean time - I really need to get H.264 turned off - and I'm trying to avoid a series of uninstalls and reinstalls, to get to a setup as documented here:


Anyone got a quick regedit hack that will achieve this? or a Callmanager setting?

I think this will work:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Cisco Unified Video Advantage]


You must close VTA, apply registry change, then restart VTA. Of course, fiddling with the registry - do so at your own risk.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Cisco Unified Video Advantage

There is entry "VideoCodec" and by default it's set to ALL

Can you try to change it to:
