Re: [Ekiga-list] Sound very choppy: lin/win connection, PulseAudio, sip address


Skype also runs on Linux and runs very well.    I'm running Fedora 14
without any sound issues.   Calls are extremely clear especially when
the user agents have negotiated CODEC G.722 or G.711.   The problem you
will run into with Ekiga on Windows, Linux, or MAC is DTMF tones using
RFC2833.  As far as the audio quality settings, I did need to do
anything except select my headset as the microphone and speakers and
that is done in Ekiga "Preferences".

Subject: [Ekiga-list] Sound very choppy: lin/win connection,
PulseAudio, sip address

Hi all, I have finally convinced two important contacts to switch from
Skype to Ekiga. They are both on Windows, I am on Linux. We all have
Ekiga sip addresses now.

The sound quality of our conversations was unusable: it was completely
choppy. Could that be because:
1) My distro uses PulseAudio
2) The sip address service might be subpar
3) The Windows Ekiga program might be not well developed
4) The default codec might be subpar

What should I do first? I do not want to replace PulseAudio with Alsa
because I have other applications that depend on PulseAudio.
