Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] Test Experience with Gnomemeeing Opal CVS (18052005)


CVS development questions should go to
gnomemeeting-devel-list gnome org ;)

I'll answer here.

Your reception is ok, but what they heard was choppy?

Yes, we will change that in the future. That is just giving a problem
with SIP that OPAL maintainers should solve when they start working
again on it.

Video is not reimplemented yet in CVS.

SJPhone or X-Lite seem the best choices.

There is a problem when registering to some gatekeepers, fixing it
breaks other things in the SIP part. Again, that's a problem for OPAL
maintainers, but they do not seem to maintain OPAL anymore. So that's on
the TODO. I'll try to work on that problem, but it won't be before a few

What codec?
