[jitsi-dev] can't login to google account


#1

I've tried multiple google accounts, but jitsi doesn't seem to be able to
login to any of them.

The accounts work fine when logging in for email, or even google talk.

With jitsi, the error always says:

"AUTHENTICATION FAILED FOR XXX@GMAIL.COM (GOOGLE TALK). THE PASSWORD YOU
ENTERED IS NOT VALID."

The password I enter is 100% correct. Even more confusing is why I can't
find other people with a similar problem on the net.

Please advise.

Thanks,

LM

Hello LM,

You can try using "@googlemail.com" extension and not "@gmail.com", as displayed in your email address: "lawmanuk@googlemail.com"

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Vincent
