[jitsi-users] Ubuntu: Keyboard layout does not change in chat window


#1

Hello

Installed Jitsi on the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - Lucid Lynx. It is localised
Cyrillic (Russian).
Jitsi is 1.0-beta1-nightly.build.3820

In the chat window I can type only in English. Keyboard layout switch
has no effect on it... whatever layout chosen, it types English.

It is possible I don't know some trick ....? Would you please advise.
Thank you in advance.

Kindest regards,
Lev

Is the maximum allowed bandwidth on the video tab 256K? If so, is there a way to
increase that limit? I'm using build 3820.

Not from the GUI. We'll remove the limitation later today.

Done. r9435. Should be available with build 3940.

Cheers,

Thanks very much. I'll do some testing in the next few days.

Thanks for making that change. Over the weekend, we finally got a chance to do
some testing. You may remember that we're trying to find a Skype replacement
that includes HD video and wideband audio (much better than g.722).

The tests did not go so well. It took a while to get video on both sides of the
conversation. When we did, according to the call technical information, the
bandwidth being consumed was not enough to support HD. Worst of all, when the
video connected, the audio negotiated to an even lower bandwidth codec - 8K.

I confess that we may be doing things for which jitsi is not designed, but the
product is so close to being a solution (SIP to SIP) that I have to ask. Are
there any other options we can try to get better audio and video?

Thanks,
MCG

We are trying to do almost the exact same thing and I agree, Jitsi is so close to being the solution for this.
We continue to use Jitsi to interact between offices on a user to user level, but we are also pushing to use it in a conference room to conference room level as well.

Hey MCG

Are you using SIP or XMPP? Exactly what did you experience. Logs would
also be nice.

When we did, according to the call technical information, the
bandwidth being consumed was not enough to support HD.

Worst of all, when the
video connected, the audio negotiated to an even lower bandwidth codec - 8K.

Lower bandwidth does not necessarily mean lower quality and vice versa.
PCMU/PCMA are a good example of that. Did you notice exactly which codec
you switched to? Could it be that this new codec was configured as
preferred for either of the two instances?

I confess that we may be doing things for which jitsi is not designed, but the
product is so close to being a solution (SIP to SIP) that I have to ask. Are

The only thing that might be tricky to achieve with Jitsi in that regard
is the HD video encoding. There are currently few CPUs out there that
can support such real-time encoding for 1080p flows. 720p should be
achievable for many modern machines (excluding netbooks of course).

We are working on improving the user experience for the rest.

Emil

Thanks for your feedback?

Can you tell us exactly what problems you are seeing?
