Valid video-call software

Postby palimmo on Fri Nov 22, 2013 5:10 pm

Hi!
Is someone there using a valid video-call software on LMDE with success?

I've tried Ekiga, Linphone, jitsi and SFLphone but always with big problems, in particular regarding echoes or audio distortions.

Looking forward to reading your experience!

I'm using Skype... With success. But of course it's coming from Microsoft... :?

Have you tried Hangout ? :lol:

You can replace gmail... if the others are using it, all your mails will be read by Google ;)

ekiga, jitsi, brosix, and some others. Ah after I took more time to read my answer is completely out of the box. I thought of alternate communication tools.

I doubt all the above mentioned programs suffer from echoes and distortions, maybe it's something related to your audio configuration (module, alsa/pulseaudio issues, latency...)
