[jitsi-users] standard environment variables for STUN and TURN servers?


#1

There is a well known HTTP_PROXY environment variable that impacts a lot
of HTTP client software

Would it be worthwhile defining similar variables for STUN_SERVER and
TURN_SERVER? Would it be much trouble for Jitsi to parse these when
making a call and if no other values have been statically configured?

I'd suggest they accept just a hostname or a full URI following the
conventions in the draft

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-nandakumar-rtcweb-turn-uri-00

For the TURN_SERVER, it could try the XMPP/SIP credentials, and if they don't work, it could prompt the user.

I've made a similar suggestion on the telepathy mailing list.
