Jitsi is really awesome function-wise, it has almost everything I need, but
this f*cking audio issues driving me mad!
With portaudio I get major clicking and gaps (discarded packets up to 40%)
in playback stream - completely unusable. With pulse (don't actualy use it,
but installed for testing) things become much better, almost no gaps, just
minor to moderate clicking sounds - usable, but really annoying. And I
don't want pulse in my system. Capture stream not yet tested much.
Tested on google talk and several SIP, tried enabling/disabling codecs,
OpenJDK and SunJava - all with more or less same results. STDERR shows
nothing serious related to portaudio/alsa.
What the heck is wrong here?
I already loose the whole working day googling and trying to get it working
properly to no avail, while any other communication/audio related software
just works flawlessly. I've also got linphone installed, not sure whether
or not it uses portaudio in debian's binary, but audio quality is perfect
as it can be in particular case.
Here is some sys info, if that would be of any help.
*attached jitsi_stderr is taken from run before pulse was installed, thats
why it complains about it.
