[h323plus] Changing video codec transmit bit rate

Unfortunately the OpenVideoChannel is called after the H.245 TCS stage so
you cannot use it to negotiate a bandwidth limit for a call.
To set the Initial Bandwidth limit in the TCS there is a callback which is
called when building.
H323EndPoint::OnSetInitialBandwidth(H323VideoCodec * codec);
So you could do something like this in your code
void MyH323EndPoint::OnSetInitialBandwidth(H323VideoCodec * codec)
unsigned bitrate = <your rate in kbps> * 1000;
if ((bitrate != 0) && (codec->GetMediaFormat().GetBandwidth() >
PTRACE(4,"My\tAdjusting maximum video bitrate to " <<
During a call the bitrate may change via FlowControl requests but will not
exceed the value you set in this callback.

Subject: [h323plus] Changing video codec transmit bit rate
How would one go about adjusting the video codec max transmission bit rate?
I understand thus can be done in OpenVideoChannel by calling
codec.SetMaxBitRate but I I get no flow control supported when I attempted
to do so.
I am using v 1.23 for H323plus downloaded from h323plus.org and pitlib v
2.8.5. I noticed that flow control is not supported in ptlib less than 2.9
but would there be another way of changing the bit rate?
