[jitsi-users] General Feedback from heavy usage in the past two days


#1

Hi,

Over the past two days I've been using jitsi 1.1 r4255 on debian wheezy
heavily for voice and video calls. These calls are sometimes
presentations or general customer-facing calls, generally 45-90 minutes
long.

jitsi to jitsi communications work really well. I'm surprised at the
HD-quality video I can sustain literally across the globe from the US
to Europe, China, or South Africa. I even shared my desktop from linux
to Windows users without issue.

jitsi to SIP provider works well. Sometimes the SIP provider cannot
understand the keypad entries/DTMF tones. I've seen this with two SIP
providers so far. The issue comes and goes.

jitsi to jitsi video chats cause java to consume 2 of my 4 cores on an
Intel i5 cpu. Add zrtp encryption to that and I consume 4 of 4 cores
with video calls for the duration of the call.

For the most part, you forget about jitsi and focus on the
communications. This is a great place, because jitsi is the tool and it
should get out of the way.

Jitsi just works, great job!

Oh, wow, thats an quite positive feedback, especialy as most of the
mails to this group are negative.
Would you mind sharing your network-setup (just an overview, is nat
involved) and your configuration?
Are you using XMPP or SIP or any other protocoll?
Wich version is the other side running?

Thanks in advance,

I know. Upset people complain more loudly than happy people, it seems.

involved) and your configuration?

connected via gigeth through nat to 10 mbps Internet connection. jitsi
info claims I was using 1 mbps sustained for video calls.

Are you using XMPP or SIP or any other protocoll?

xmpp through jit.si for direct video calls. SIP for voice calls.

Wich version is the other side running?

no idea.

And the nat just works out of the box?
Well, at least that shows me that it must be possible, somehow.

I didn't configure anything in jitsi. It just worked. My local IP is on
the 10.0.0.0/8 network, so it has to have worked. :wink:

Either that or my ISP has some serious routing issues.
