Jingle audio - tested against which clients?

hi i’‘d like to know with which clients spark can make up audio conferences … i just tries jabbin but that didn’'t work (although i know that jabin code is realy old - summer 06)

SmilingJ,

At this point, Jingle will only work Spark to Spark. There are a few reasons for this:

  • Virtually every other client is using libjingle. Libjingle is still using the Google version of the protocol and not standard Jingle yet. We use our own Jingle implementation in Spark.

  • There are still some squishy things in the Jingle protocol which makes things like NAT traversal hard to implement between clients (since the protocol is not exact enough yet).

As the protocol stabilizes, you’'ll see interop start to work more and more. Hopefully quite soon!
