Hi phd21,

Sure it helps!
Thanks for your long reply and the updated scripts.
Not that I'm using much this application, but, as noted, it is a great alternative to skype. The hardest is probably to convince others to make the change.
It would have been a bad news if the project has been stopped.

Now that several countries request their citizen to be confined, too bad to see that qtox does not propose any new version (latest from mid 2018) and any alternative to the very often (too often) mentioned skype.
