[jitsi-users] Should Jitsi recognize that buddy's Jitsi has voice/video disabled?


#1

I’ve disabled voice/video on the machine where voice chat crashes OS into BSOD. This was done in Account/Edit/Telephony/Disable jingle, but the other users still see voice and video buttons for that buddy.

Should Jitsi remove/disable the buttons for the unavailable services? I am afraid to test what is going to happen if I pressed voice call to that buddy as if it would start voice chat with them, it would crash the machine again and cause downtime and lost work.

Thank you
Alex


#2

We had a misfortune to have this tested. Someone accidentally hit voice chat button to the ‘crashing’ machine.
This is the scenario:

Machine 1 is the one which crashes when it initiates/receives voice and video call, Win7 64bit AMD Ahtlon dual core on 790 chipset. Jingle is disabled in the account.
Machine 2 works fine with voice/video chat, WinXP 64bit, AMD A10 quad core
Machine 3 works fine with voice/video chat, WinXP 64bit, AMD Phenom II quad core.

When Machine 3 accidentally called Machine 1, #1 crashed and #3 got frozen and had to be power cycled.
But any calls between #3 and #2 in any direction work fine.

Bottom line:

1. If Jingle is disabled, Jitsi should not respond to the incoming calls. Ideally a buddy whose Jingle is disabled should not display call buttons.

2. Something is really wrong with Jitsi, as no other voice/video app has any issues whatsoever on any of the machines 1, 2, 3. I suspect it could be JRE on AMD platform in general and Jitsi just had a misfortune to expose that, but still this is the issue with Jitsi only.

Thank you
