[jitsi-users] How to make a video call


#1

Hi - I am new to video calling. Just got a webcam and was able to connect on Utox. Now I want to try Jitsi, but I can’t figure out how to make a video call. I have Jitsi 2.11.5576. I searched for documentation, but couldn’t find anything. I would greatly appreciate any help.

1) you need to register a XMPP or SIP account (all for free), there are
many XMPP providers out there:

https://www.jabberes.org/servers/
https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/XMPP/Server/
https://list.jabber.at/

2) make connection to your chosen provider with Jitsi Desktop client
3) your buddy should do the same, invite each other to your contact list
(roaster)
4) check audio/video settings in Jitsi if everything is recognized by Jitsi
5) make video call to your buddy, if "ICE failed" error happens, try to
call in both directions, otherwise change the provider

basically everything runs out of the box, also audio/video encrypt

This is my second attempt to send this. The first was from SeaMonkey
Mail. Now, I am trying from Yahoo. Hopefully, it will be more readable.
