Description (partial)


new MP 8 installation

configure a new group, called "H263"
set video permission to + can host vid mtg
go to Vieo Type field, shows "Compatibility" there by default, change it to "H.263" video type

With above setting, if I create a new user and assign that user to Group = H263, I expect Video Type field to contain H263 as the only available video type to this user

But when I set group = H263, Video Types > Available to the user field shows:

Compatibility (default)
Group default (H.263)

Two problems with this:

1.  there should be only 1 video types in the field, since Group "H263" has only one video type assigned (GROUP config UI itself limits the setting to only 1 choice)

2.  Sys admin who want this user to use video type H.263 now has to manually move H.263 above Compatibility in order to make H.263 the (working) default for this user

The above behavior is seen only under special circumstance.  Only a problem if when you open the ADD user admin page, page does not show Video Type selection.   If page opens up with video type config box (eg. group to which GUEST profile belong is set to "+ can host"), then you don't see this problem


When adding new profiles, and assigning the new user to a group that has a group default video type, this group default video type does not appear as the top entry in the user profile's "available to user" video type list.  As a result, this group default video type will not be the default video type used by this profile.
