After also building the gnome client directory (not just the kde client directory), the video became available. That needs additional prerequisites to build - cogl, clutter & clutter-gtk. That much looks good.

I don't currently have build scripts for the gtk deps, but when I get time I can work on these (gsb or dropline might be a place I could start). I'll try to make time to reseach the registration issue, but a good starting point is probably https://projects.savoirfairelinux.com/projects/sflphone/wiki/FAQ#Why-I-cannot-register-my-sip-account-successfully, but that is just a guess. I'll look into that more later today or early tommorow.

They contain some extra stuff compared to regulation SBo scripts, which is used for a particular build environment but is completely transparent to ordinary usage. Just add the source tarballs and run the Slack.builds as usual.

Your scripts for cogl, clutter, and clutter-gtk work fine here. I had to install a few things;
I forget what, but they were in the PREREQS and in the normal SBo. I've adjusted my local copy of the sflphone SlackBuild to build both gui clients, either one, or just the cli and daemon. I'll
push that to my repo after I post this. Next I need to track down the bug I triggered. The gnome
client segfaulted while opening the preferences window. I'm too tired right now to debug it...
I may not get to it until the weekend.
