[jitsi-dev] Ubuntu Touch support


#1

Another try on this: :slight_smile:

Are there any plans about trying to compile/package Jitsi for the ARM
platform, so that Jitsi would run on Ubuntu Touch?

Others have asked this before (e.g. [1], [2]), and maybe it was too
early that time, but now Ubuntu Touch is pretty well off, working
fine, with a solid user base (of enthusiasts, acknowleded!). Telegram
and Skype are working there, at least for messaging, but a voice and
video chat application is still missing for the platform. (Could be a
booster for Jitsi if it were #1 there, both for downloads and
visibility in the press, maybe! What do you think?)

And of course SIP would be awesome to make a real difference, and
remind people of their responsibility to pay (less) for their phone
calls, if they care about privacy. :slight_smile:

I'm not sure what it takes to make Jitsi available on ARM, but if
anyone knows the challenges I can try to help to get it running and
also help with packaging.

Cheers, Peter
