[jitsi-users] XMPP/JABBER Service Discovery support for Skype Transport by jabbim


#1

http://www.jabber.cz/wiki/En/Skype_transport

Please! Do it! Very necessary!

Thank you!


#2

as far as I understood Jitsi is a client, so if you register at
jabbim.com for a XMPP account, enable the skype transport service using
the Psi client (Jitsi has not the feature of service discovery in XMPP
yet) and use later Jitsi with the jabbim account it should work
(should be similar working (?) as with the skype4pidgin plugins for
pidgin and for Adium, where Skype has to run in the background while you
can chat directly out of Pidgin/Adium with your Skype contacts using OTR
encryption, if your Skype partners do the same...)

I did not try it yet - however the skype transport in jabbim is not a
free service...(?)

If you need a non-skype account that can call to and receive calls
from skype you can give a look to ippi
(http://www.ippi.com/index.php?page=all-services&)...

Just for my own curiosity, why to use another software to communicate
trough skype protocol? only to not install a non-free-software? to
save ram running 1 software instead of 2?

Cheers :wink:

I don't know about other people, but I don't trust Skype. I've tried
running it in a VM, but I had various performance issues. Up until my
Android tablet got stolen, I used Skype on it (I never do anything
sensitive or important on a mobile device). And I don't currently have
another PC I can dedicate to running Skype.

(I have attempted to "sandbox" Skype, but had problems with the proxy X
display server.)

So, for me, an alternate way to connect to Skype would make things easier.

Thanks for suggesting ippi.com. I will look it over.

I have just setup Jitsi with jabbim.com account (where before enabled
the skype-transfer service using Psi client):

it works in that way, that all your Skype contacts appear now in Jitsi
(for chatting only, no audio/video) and the skype client itself is
turned off (you can even uninstall the skype client afterwards I guess
as all transfer is handled via the jabbim.com jabber account).
so if the skype buddies would use the same system or pidgin with
skype4pidgin plugin or Adium with the skype-plugin you can use OTR for
chatting over Skype
(...but who will do this?)

it is of course against any philosophy of free/open software and kind of
pain to use especially Jitsi for it
...and this service from jabbim is also not for free: 7 EUR/year

Thank you for the answer, was only a curiosity, i don't trust also

ippi.com claims free portaling to Skype. I don't know if it
includes voice.

It includes also voice, skype users see an incoming call from
"skype2ippi" or something similiar. I don't remember very well, i've
tested it some months ago but i'm sure that the voice works.

Interesting that these services are in Europe. There was a company in the
US that offered free portals to Skype and several others, and even to North
American toll-free phone numbers. But the company was bought by Google and
those portals taken down. (At least, I can't find them anymore.)

Hello,

also for me is important skype interoperability. I tried right now skype2ippi and works
perfectly both ways with audio calls, but not with chat, video and file transfer.

For my needs chat is more important than voice, so is there anyone that found a way
to chat with skype users without skype installed (at no cost)? Is there anything I can do
to my Asterisk or Ejabberd to make it possible (that is: without external accounts)?

Thanks,
  Matteo

jabbim claims to have currently the only skype transfer via XMPP on the
world...(but this is not free - 7 EUR/year), I have donated and chatting
from Jitsi to Skype contacts works perfectly (without Skype running)

no infos about other solutions, sorry
