[TOOLS] Jitsi - Instant Messenger

Unread postby meveric » Sun Dec 01, 2013 7:27 pm

Not sure if you heard about it, but ever since the NSA / Snowden affair, people looking into more privacy, and there are a couple of open source projects, that hit on that topic too.

Jitsi is a multi protocol messenger (like pidgin or miranda) it supports many different protocols and also voice and video chat.

I made a quick and dirty build for the odroid. Since Jitsi is running on java, it runs on every platform.. and can run just fine on ODROID as long as you have java installed. (i used openjdk-6)

One thing that is nice with jitsi is, that it offers end-to-end encryption of chat, voice and video.. so everything you talk about is secure.

If you want to give it a try you can download it from my repository:
Code: Select all
wget http://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/repository/all/jitsu-odroid_2.3.0-1_armhf.deb
dpkg -i jitsu-odroid_2.3.0-1_armhf.deb

(yeah i know, i kinda messed up the name^^)

This is just a "give it a try" build... i tried audio calls but it did not find any audio device to capture the voice from, i tried sharing the desktop which resulted in a secured video transmission, but i never actually saw a picture.. maybe it's just me. :ugeek:

Hi,

I've been working with Jitsi on the Beaglebone Black and RPi with very uneven results. I'm considering moving to Odroid instead, but haven't worked with the platform. Would you mind sharing a bit more about your experience with video chat on the Odroid and some of the tools/specs/environment you're developing on?

Thanks for any guidance.

I didn't do much checking on this, since i never had a WebCam connected.
I only used it for text messages and file transfer.
I also couldn't get the audio input to run properly.. so i couldn't do voice-chat either.. but i didn't put much effort in this, since i'm not too much into java-debugging

i used an local ejabberd server for transport as well as the Jitsi Jabber Server.. and used openjdk-6 to run Jitsi.
What more information do you need/want?

I am trying to build jitsi for the latest version for odroid. Would it be possible to share build instructions? Thanks.

it's been ages since I've last build it.. I probably can't help you here.
