I am attempting to use Jitsi as a chat client with GChat, instead of being
logged into gmail and using the browser popup. My impression is that this
should be possible, based on the following:
Since these discussions refer to versions of Jitsi after July 2015, and the
Stable release is from March 2015, I have installed the nightly build:
When I follow the instructions to set up a Google Talk account
and I try to Sign In, I get a popup saying:
"The firstname.lastname@example.org (Google Talk) server has requested your authentication."
I am asked for my password, and upon entering it I get:
"Authentication failed for email@example.com (Google Talk). The password you
entered is not valid."
This behavior does not agree with what I would expect based on the
discussions at the first two links in my post. I do not see any popup
providing a link to use OAuth2. And the instructions for how to set up
Google Talk are obviously out of date. Any help would be most welcome.
