Yep, that's all true. Not everyone will need/want video calling on
their freeswitch, though. If the instructions to build from source are
outdated/hard to find, it will only difficult for other distros and
*BSDs to try getting video working.

The libraries are open source, right? Can links to the source be
provided so others can try compiling on their OS? Is the source in
FreeSWITCH's repo at https://freeswitch.org/stash/projects/SD for any
OS or just for debian?

I think it would be useful to have a document that explains what
dependency is for what so that users would know what libraries are
needed to compile certain features.
