[jitsi-users] Jitsi on Mac, Windows, Linux


#1

Hi all,

First of all, thanks for continuous development of Jitsi. Our company (around 2000) is inclined to slowly move away from Microsoft Lync to a client that works on all platforms and looks like Jitsi suits that description pretty well.

I have few questions about the platform.
Our machines consist of 70% Linux (CentOS 6.6), 10% Mac (Mavericks, Yosemite) and 20% Windows (Win7 Enterprise 64bit). We're using Java versions 1.8.0.65_b17 on Mac and Linux and 1.7.0_45-b18 on Windows.

Would you be able to advise, which is the 'ideal' Java version for clients on all three platforms? While audio/video calls seem to work with no problems, I ran into issues with RDC, whereupon switching back to video it crashes the application. I also noticed that in some RDC combinations (Mac to Linux, Mac to Windows, Linux to Mac) controlling destination desktop was almost impossible, as there was a second delay for each tiny mouse movement.

Have you come across these issues before? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Windows and Mac version comes with java pre-bundled and you don't need
to care about it, its java 1.8. Using 1.8 on linux will be good, but
1.7 should also work. Java UI has a problem when is been used through
remote desktop, we have seen a lot of errors there, we tried fixing
them and to be able to still use it, but it is possible to still have
problems with that.

Hello, I'm new to mailing lists in general. Tell me if I'm doing it wrong..

I guess it could be related to this thread that I occasionally found it impossible to establish calls through XMPP between Stable Jitsi Linux (v. 2.8.5426) on Mint 17.2 with OpenJDK-7-jre and Stable Jitsi Windows on Windows 7 64bit (all the clients I call should be using v. 2.8.5426 too).

Sometimes I get an error about incorrect or missing parameters causing the other end to hang up. I would reproduce it and paste it here in case you find it useful. I'm trying to understand what causes this.

My friends use Jitsi through XMPP for their multi-user calls between Windows 7 PCs all the time, using ZRTP, and it just works great. I can usually call them from Linux too, but sometimes I'm unable to join or call one of them in a regular two-users call.
I'm also suspecting that more than one XMPP resource were available for that account when I had troubles calling, like smartphone XMPP clients. It seems that stable Jitsi still has uncertain compatibility with multiple XMPP resources when it comes to OTR encryption but I really can't see how this could affect calls. Any advice is really welcome!

Was it a good idea to answer this message?
