[jitsi-users] Call non-contact over XMPP/Jingle


Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your feedback as well. I'm familiar with SIP, however SIP is
a less user-friendly protocol (phonenumber@domain) than XMPP. The
technical background for this omission in XMPP makes sense to me, though
I'd still like to be able to call a specific full JID by typing it in,
even if this isn't the ideal long term solution (since adding it would
not break compatibility with XMPP standards, I think?) I'll take a look
at the code.

Kind regards,

support calling someone without their full JID (as Emil said), you
*can* do that via SIP. Since Jitsi supports SIP, you might want to try
that. There are a number of free SIP providers out there. HTH, Anthony
