... it's very nice to see that feature - I asked before, so I couldn't miss the first oportunity to give it a test. This is what's going on:
Setup: Two latest Jitsis 3470 on a LAN, these two cameras:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0ac8:3420 Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. Venus USB2.0 Camera
and on the other side
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:a101 Suyin Corp. Acer CrystalEye Webcam
1. It's not possible to set a different resolution - they stay the same for all options in the list, no matter if lower or higher. Changing this setting does not affect the amount of data transfered either.
2. The Max Bandwidth Setting seem to have an effect - but only by creating artefacts or even large image latency. (what a narrowband net does anyway)
3. Changing the framerate has no observable effect - not in the image nor in the bandwidth measured.
- What is the objective of these settings? a) take effect in the next call b) take effect after switching video off and on again c) take effect immediately
- Is the resolution linked to the camera or does Jitsy scale the image from the camera on the fly? How would I know if the camera doesn't support a selected resolution?
- Does "Max Bandwidth" set the video encoding bitrate?
Thanks for implementing nice features I hope to get hold on an Atom netbook soon to test whether Jitsi works there with smaller resolutions.
PS: As this settings are to be changed more often than e.g. the video codecs - it might have deserved a more prominent place in the settings window doesn't it.
