[jitsi-users] Very bad sound with music@iptel.org and current versions (1.0 and 1.1)


#1

Hello,

I've installed Jitsi on my Debian/testing (fairly up to date) x86 system.

I've tried the 1.0 and the 1.1 branch

The 1.0 exhibits quite a number of problems :
- the sound when calling music@iptel.org is *bad* : jitter, "clicks" here and there
- repeating the same call sometimes fails

The 1.1 doesn't even make correct calls to music@iptel.org "incorrect payload"

Here are the package I've used (downloaded today) :

jitsi_1.0-latest_i386.deb
jitsi_1.1.4465.10438-1_i386.deb

I don't plan to use jitsi intensively right now (but I'd like to). So I provide this experience as a way to help you in your bug squashing efforts...

As I'm an OK developper, feel free to ask me to do some other tests.

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I've been testing Jitsi 1.0 on Debian testing (kde interface) for about a month too. our sip pbx is sipxecs (release 4.0)
I make calls every day to other voip phones or to pstn calls (through a gateway). Sound is usually good , i got bad sound (clicks or choppy sound) only few times and especially when the call was between two soft-phones.

Do you use javasound or portaudio? I had to set to portaudio to get good sound.

Hmmm...

Thanks for the answer. I've tried both JavaSound and Portsound. JavaSound doesnt work at all. For PortSound I've used all the available options (there a few of them). They behave, either in the same way, either not at all. I've also tried a Sun JDK (1.6.xxx) as well as the Debian JVM (OpenJDK IIRC).

On this mailing lost, someone suggested to use an export to change the "hw:" stuff from Alsa, but it didn't work neither.

My Debian runs on Alsa and PulseAudio. Both of them work flawlessly with other programs (Firefox, VLC, you name it).

The kind of "clicks" remember be some problem I had when writing sound programs. This happened when buffers were not filled or emptied fast enough (but I'm sure the devs now better as I've been able to read some reports on old mails in this mailing list)....

If you want I can provide more technical info... Maybe you've got some debug mode or test programs to make diagnostics ?

hello all,
Sorry to come in on this one, i hope the present problem can be solved for
the person that ask the question.
i also have a problem, i installed jitsi running with my sip server. But
since creating the first user, its the only one active and can see all the
other users if they appear online. but the other users cannot see the any
of the other users. and the funny thing, the second user that is created
can make calls, and share desktop and video, but cannot send messages.
Been playing around it, but cant seem to figure out what the problem
is.Only the first user is able to see messages and see the other users
online.

thank you in advace...
lama.
