I found this thread in archives and would like to raise it up.
As I understand the codec is required for voice/video, but what about
messaging? Pidgin + Sipe does support Office Communicator and I think
it would be very nice to have such support in Jitsi.
So - how do you think - what is best way to implement this - extend SIP
protocol or create new one, based on SIP?
First of all we'd need to have the codec used by Lync/OCS. As far as I
remember it's still proprietary und doesn't use RTP but something that goes
over TCP (sic!). Unless that's been changed from OCS 2007 R2 to Lync 2010,
this would be a huge effort.
