[jitsi-users] Can't authenticate on Facebook


#1

Downloaded Jitsi (sudo apt-get install jitsi) to my Linux Mint machine. Spent hours trying to get it to connect to my Facebook account. After much research discovered that the Facebook server (chat.facebook.com) was closed down last April. Programme and website both give detailed instructions for doing this without mentioning the fact that it hasn't worked for 8 months and will never work again.

Hi,

Yes, your findings are correct. Clients like Jitsi can no longer access
Facebook (Instead, you have to use their messenger to be able to chat
off the site).

Hi Amhad

Thanks for the prompt response.  My reason for reporting this was so that you could modify the programme and documentation so that others aren't sucked intro wasting a lot of time like I was.  Don't Facebook realise that they can't rule the world?  Bill Gates has already named Google as his successor!

Cheers aye
