[jitsi-dev] Maybe a bug with facebook and SIP integration


#1

Hey jitsi.dev team!

I maybe ran into a bug, that makes jitsi useless for me.
After the installation i could use the normal jitsi account and facebook chat.
Then i tried SIP, it worked for about 5 Minutes, after that it shows "offline" all the time.
And it doesn't matter what i try, it stays offline.
A simple tool called microsip works without any problems with my fritz.box 7490, so i guess it's not related to the box.

And now jitsi wants always my password for my facebook chat. After entering it says, the credentials are wrong. So i tried another tool with facebook chat integration and my credentials work.

I disabled my windows firewall, just to see if it's the bottleneck, but it wasn't.

What further information do you need for fixing this stuff?

I am running Win 8.1 x64 on latest patches, latest java and everything.

Yours, Knutowskie

Please have in mind that Facebook announced some year and a half ago
that they will be dropping the XMPP support and all third party
clients. Half year ago they started implementing this new policy,
obviously meant to promote their own Messenger application. Not
surprising at all BTW, walled gardens typical evolution.

Now they seem to use a sort of their own non-standard implementation
of MQTT and in the recent weeks third party XMPP clients started
losing connectivity with Facebook.

It's a good time for all of us to once again try to get at least some
of our contacts to use the XMPP network, because one way or another
Facebook integration in third party clients will be a hard thing to
support in the future. Of course I'm not speaking on behalf of the
Jitsi team -- if the dev team has plans and finds a way to support
this, it will be great. But for now your Facebook connectivity problem
is caused by Facebook itself, on purpose. :frowning:
