Hi all. I'm testing compatibility of voice calls between different
Jabber clients. I noticed that Jitsi have a lot of compatibility
problems, so I decided to post my results here.
Jitsi version 1.0-beta1-nightly.build.3565 (01-Jul-2011) on WinXP was
used. Other clients was run on a computer with ArchLinux. There were
no NATs or firewalls, direct connections were possible.
Calling from Jitsi to Psi+ (ver. 0.15.4113) was impossible, there was
no "Call" button near a contact. Jitsi thought that Psi+ doesn't
supports voice calls.
Call from Psi+ to Jitsi wasn't successful too. Jitsi showed a call
window and wrote "Connected" in it, but Psi+ was showing only
"Calling..." for more than a minute, I manually stopped a call. There
were no sound from both sides.
Calling from Jitsi to Gajim (0.14.3) worked once, but generally
Jitsi doesn't show a "Call" button in this case.
Call from Gajim to Jitsi wasn't impossible - Jitsi immediately dropped a
Call from Pidgin (2.9.0) to Jitsi wasn't successful - they tried to make
a connection for some time, but couldn't.
Call from Jitsi to Pidgin was successful, but I could hear a voice only
at a Pidgin side, Jitsi played nothing.
Call from Google Talk (browser module ver. 126.96.36.199) to Jitsi and vice
versa wasn't possible, calling button was inactive in both cases.
If problem was caused by another client, not a Jitsi, tell me about it.
Thank for you attention!
