[jitsi-users] Feature Request and Questions: Muting audio stream for better video performance, using less bandwidth for stable videochat,...


#1

Feature Request:

1. When you mute the microfon Jitsi should stop streaming the audio and
instead use it for a better video quality.
2. It should be possible to videochat with Jitsi even if people have
DSL2000 or less. It is possible in Skype without cracking and drop outs.
It is so annoying.
3. Speed up launching. It takes almost 10 seconds.
4. Make it possible to have more than one OTR fingerprint for each user.
(Very useful, if the chat partner uses Jitsi or any similar software on
different devices. Each generates a new fingerprint.)
5. Warn users if OTR is not used!
6. Highlight the lock. E.g. red/green OTR actived/deactivated
(7. Add an option to use the "old" smileys. Some lady asked for it.)

Questions:
1. When I sent files with Jitsi, are they encrypted?

Hey Christian,

Feature Request:

You get this already with both SILK and Opus.

2. It should be possible to videochat with Jitsi even if people have
DSL2000 or less. It is possible in Skype without cracking and drop outs.
It is so annoying.

Have you tried reducing your resolution and frame rate?

3. Speed up launching. It takes almost 10 seconds.

Yup, we need to look at this at some point.

4. Make it possible to have more than one OTR fingerprint for each user.
(Very useful, if the chat partner uses Jitsi or any similar software on
different devices. Each generates a new fingerprint.)
5. Warn users if OTR is not used!

We don't currently have that much time to look into OTR. We are however
very, very interested in any contributions on the matter.

Questions:
1. When I sent files with Jitsi, are they encrypted?

Depends on the protocol. They might sometimes be encrypted between you
and the server and then from the server to your peer. We don't currently
have e2e encryption there though.

Cheers,
Emil

IS there even an xmpp-specification about p2p-encryption of file-transfairs?

I am not aware of such a spec. We were thinking of using ZRTP or DTLS
once we integrate pseudo tcp ... but we'll have to see..
