[jitsi-dev] Connection between two jitsi client with googletalk


#1

Hi everyone,
There is a problem - two linux computers Open SUSE 12.1 and OpenSuse 11.4 both 64 buts run jitsi - 1.1-nightly.4061x64. On a try to make call between comps using jitsi agents with two google talk accounts there is no audio or video connection, the call ring and hang out are carried as expected, also the windows report - connected. If one of the comps takes the call from gmail everything is fine. So two jitsi can not transfered audio and video but a jitsi and a gmail google talk plugin can. Any help is welcome. Here is the log attached.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is due to openSUSE 12.1 (x64)
Since upgrading from 11.4 (x64), I've run into lots of problems in
various areas. And I'm not alone. Read the reports. I find 12.1 to be
the most unstable/immature openSUSE version I have run since the '90s.

Sound is one of them. Making Jitsi calls almost unaudible (much jitter
and cracks). Jitsi on Windows however always runs smooth. As soon as I
find time I'm trying out some distros in a virtual machines, to get some
sort of baseline. But that may take a while though, since I'm on a
business trip abroad.

Cheers,
Koos

Hi Oleg,

Jitsi uses ICE (RFC-5245) to try to discover the IP address of your correspondent (if your correspondent support ICE too). If several IP addresses are available, then ICE chooses the "most direct" one: i.e. if a direct media stream if possible, then Jitsi uses it. However, when a direct connection is not available, then ICE tries to connect to the call peer via a relay method like a TURN server (RFC-5766) or Jingle Relay Nodes (XEP-0278).

In your case, when using google mail accounts, ICE may try to connect to the google TURN server, which is not RFC-5766 compliant. For the moment, Jitsi does not supports this google TURN server flavor correctly, and it may take a while before achieving this support (any help is welcome).

For example, to by-pass this problem you can create and use a "jit.si" account which uses Jingle Relay Nodes.

Regards,
Vincent
