You should go 'Video' tab in options, and click on the 'Encodings' subtab.
There you will find a list of video codecs that can be used, and can change
their order as well. I'm not sure if changing the order changes priority or
preferred video codec.
The video codec used for video call will also depend on the other person's
program and what it supports (if it supports only H.264 then H.264 is the
only codec you can use).
You can also take a look at the Jitsi logs, which should have some sort of
Java error or backtrace, which can help in debugging the problem.
8 Days ago, I posted the following message. Since I have not received
any response, I am reposting again in the hopes that there is a
possible solution to this crash.
New to using Jitsi. I find it to be a wonderful program. I have a
problem however, with launching Video. Each time I choose to initiate
Video, Jitsi crashes. I understand that there may be a Codec problem
from notes that I have seen. But, where do we change any of the
existing Video Codec selections?
I am using a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium/x64/i7Core/8GB RAM
I have tried the Advanced selection tab in Jitsi Console, and
adjustments there don't seem to help.
Assistance in this area is much appreciated. Thank you to all for
