After more than a year of intensive development on jingle and ice4j we
have finally reached a point where XMPP telephony in SC is in a
reasonably useful state!
At this point we have:
* One-to-one calls
* Video calls
* Basic conference calls (i.e. everyone but the mixer perceives them as
a one-to-one call)
* Attended and blind transfers
* Mute and hold
Desktop streaming, rtp DTMF and many others are coming very very shortly.
So, feel free to grab the latest build (3102) and give it a try!
As the subject states, this is our first version so you may experience
problems but that's what this is about after all :). Besides we did have
test calls that went just fine, so hopefully basic scenarios would work
for you as well.
Seb has also done some work on patching up ice4j so NAT traversal should
now be working fairly decently. You would of course need to have a TURN
server to make sure that you are absolutely foolproof but things should
be working even without it in most cases. And besides Thiago is
currently working on completing beta support for Jingle nodes so you'd
have that option too soon enough ( right Thiago? )
Also note that we are currently experiencing some interoperability
issues with Collabora's jingle stack (gabble/libnice) so you won't be
able to get SC talking to empathy, nokia phones, or their echo service
for the time being. We are working with them on fixing this.
Until then you'd have to live with SC2SC calls ... which is not all that
bad is it
So, grab that build and happy Jingle!
