You do use the name from your account. You just need to add @jit.si to it.
Otherwise there's no way for Jitsi to know what server to connect to.
Exactly, this info needs to be on the jit.si page to guide people that
don't know this. I had to search through this mail list to find the
answer, since it wasn't at the jit.si account setup page or FAQ. It is
primarily confusing since the username on the jit.se account form is
different than the one used in the Jitsi application.
This information needs to be added to either the jit.si page
and/or FAQ, as there does not appear to be guidance on how to set up
Jitsi after registering an XMPP account through jit.si.
There's an example right underneath the user name field that says:
I didn't find this example helpful, as I had assumed the username
would have been the same one used to create the account. It's not
clear that the server is specified here, as described in my fumble
Furthermore, are XMPP usernames without "@somthing.org" even allowed?
If not, then it should be flagged as an invalid username when setting
up this account type in the Jitsi application.
Yup. That's what we do. Second screenshot attached.
Correct, the basic form does not allow usernames without @server.org,
however I used the Advanced setup dialog, which appears to allow this
input (Jitsi 2.2.4603.9615). I've recreated my fumbling steps to
explain how I setup an XMPP account using a username without a server
1) Add existing XMPP account with username without @jit.si
2) I saw the "Please complete the server part of your account" error,
so went to "Advanced" to find a server field. (again I stress: I did
not know that the "server part" needed to be added to the username,
since it doesn't say it)
3) In Advanced, under the Connection tab in Server options, check on
"Override server default options", and put "git.si" for connect
4) Press Next, and Sign in
Clearly, these are not the correct steps, but it was the only way that
I saw that I was specifying the server name.
The result was the CA error dialog, shown here in full:
Jitsi can't verify the identity of the server when connecting to
The certificate is not trusted, which means that the server's identity
cannot be automatically verified.
Do you want to continue connecting?
For more information, click "Show Certificate".
And under Show Certificate, here are a few snippets (note: I can't
copy this field!):
