which instant messengers, chat clients and video telephony applications you use in tinycore?
in the voting list represented all communication applications that are available in tinycore repo
can select no more than 5 of them because unlikely someone uses so many simultaneously

in your opinion which internet communicating applications lacks in the tinycore repository?
possible you use other applications that are more powerfull and more lightweight than listed?

thank you for your replies and suggestions

If I need to quickly irc, I just use Opera, because I have it open anyway.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

IMHO, once you add linphone as a choice, pjsua should be there as well, as in comparison latter has a lighter footprint and is much more versatile when it comes to CLI usage.

What I am not sure about is your subject, is it mandatory for phone apps to include a video function or vice versa?

dear tinypoodle
you are absolutely right this is my omission
i missed pjsua when looking in the repo
pjsua has added to poll
thank you

i mean any applications for people communication
which is lightweight and powerful at the same time
which is already used in tinycore or could be done
of course the video is optional for this purposes
but how can be vice versa i have not seen :)

People who are signing don't necessarily require audio.
It's also not uncommon for security feeds to be video only.

Not informed about current version, but many versions of amsn have provided decent video communication without a VoIP feature.

BTW, current beta version of pjsua seems to feature video, while the extension in repo does not.

dear Rich
i not sure that correctly understood latest
but if correctly then i would like to notice
that i think that video does not yet give guarantee
that communication channel can not be hacked
by third-party side

Hi AbNoRMiS
All I did was point out two situations where one might transmit video but not audio.
