[jitsi-users] Jitsi as default program in Win8.1


#1

Hi
I have just installed Jitsy on my Win8.1 system. Unfortunately it does not associate with SIP and TEL protocols, so when clicking on such a link, another program opens. I have found no way to configure my system accordingly, as Jitsy does not appear in the list of selectable programs for these protocols.
Do you know and help?
Have a wonderful day,
Louis

The setup of Jitsi on Windows presents a screen which allows you/the
user to associate Jitsi with SIP and/or XMPP URIs. Have you seen that?
Anyway, I don't think we attempt to associate with TEL URIs.

I see that we have a request for callto: and tel: support at
https://trac.jitsi.org/ticket/1001. It's 3 years old though so I'm not
sure what's the opinion of the Jitsi dev community about that. I
personally don't have the time to implement it due to higher
priorities.

There are two parts to this problem:

- making Jitsi accept a "tel" URI on the command line
- registering Jitsi as handler for the "tel" URI

It may not be ideal or necessary for Jitsi to register as the handler.
Some other application could handle the URI first, check for ENUM
results and then pass to the most appropriate handler or give user a
choice of handlers if the ENUM result gives multiple options.

E.g. if ENUM returns an XMPP address, SIP address and HTTP address, then
the "tel" handler would ask "do I invoke your default sip: handler or
your default xmpp: handler or web browser?"

When there are no ENUM results, the number usually has to be converted
to a SIP address. This is where having Jitsi as the handler is
appropriate, because Jitsi will know the domain of the PSTN gateway.
Some third-party tel: URI handler would not know just how to rewrite the
address or would need to have some extra configuration to know how to do
this.
