[jitsi-users] Suggestions for contacts, compression, notifications, and video


#1

Hi users,

  I've recently did an extensive search for a VOIP program that allows
  more than one service to be active at a time, and Jitsi is the best
  I've found. Great job so far. There are a few things I'd like to see
  changed on Jitsi though.

  1. The contacts. It is not possible to add a phone
  number to the contacts. It'd be very helpful if we could add phone
  numbers to the contacts, and select a default account to use to contact
  them. It'd also be nice if we could, when calling them, select an
  alternate account.

  2. Compression. It would be best if each account had its own
  compression settings. Different services accept different
  compression, so to be truely capable of multiple services, it really
  should set compression differently for each account.

  3. Notifications. It'd be nice if there was two sound check boxes in
  the events table, one for the "Audio Out" sound device, and one for
  the "Notifications" sound device. Some sounds are best to go through
  the "Audio Out" like the dialing sound and busy signal and stuff
  like that, while the "Incoming call" needs to be on the
  "Notifications" sound device so it is always heard.

  4. Video. I'd prefer if it did not initalize video when the Jitsi
  starts. That can bring up annoying video capture drivers on each
  load, which have to be minimized or shut down. That gets annoying
  when you have to do it every time you turn on your computer.
  Especially when a lot of people will probably never use video.

  Other than that it's great. I only use it on SIP. I don't have any
  other accounts, except Skype, and you don't have it setup for Skype
  yet. I'll probably quite using Skype soon though.

Not sure what you mean. I can definitely add as many phone
numbers as I want using as many accounts as I want to one
contact.

Right click on a contact and select "add contact to <contact>".
Or drag and drop contacts onto a contact.

Then, when you click on the contact, you get a drop down list of
phone numbers/accounts to use.
