[jitsi-users] Jitsi Java program - WebRTC compatability?


#1

I used jitsi ~4 years ago as a Java program for some SIP testing, and it
worked well enough (mostly a n00b here). Fast-forward to now, and I need
to interact with a Jisti meet server - however I have no interest in
giving a browser access to a webcam or microphone (WebRTC is killed off
in Pale Moon as policy of that project anyway).

Are there any plans to add WebRTC capability to jitsi? I imagine it
would turn up in the Add Account dialog, doesn't look like anything is
there currently, and presumably the WebRTC stuff doesn't have the idea
of a registrar like SIP.

Thanks

There's no plans for this (and the concept of a "WebRTC" account in Jitsi isn't going to work, since WebRTC doesn't specify what signaling to use). Just get a browser which has WebRTC and use that instead of Jitsi.
