PC tp PC calling (voip)
« on: April 09, 2014, 01:03:41 AM »
hi

Is there a really lite version of PC to PC calling software?   (VOIP)

maybe a command line tool that can do?

something kind of like IRC   (but for voice calling PC to PC)


what is it please?

linphone has a command-line client and is in the repo.

ossrecord|nc

more serious: jitsi, linphone, pjsip, etc.

Name of pjsip user agent extension is pjsua.tcz, available in 4.x repo, but not 5.x
Compiled against openssl 0.9.8, so will probably not just easily work on 5.x

other things coming to mind:

I on the other hand gave up on linux softphones.
I would suggest a gigaset voip phone or an old fritz!box plus analog dect phone. It's quite cool if you can also connect a headset (gf likes to talk sometimes ;))

ye

i was a bit confused about VOIP calls....and what SIP means

it seems you can just use a SIP softphone client, then register for a free SIP supplier in the cloud  (GetonSIP.com)

then i found a lightweigth win32 SIP softphone client  --------  MicroSIP  http://www.microsip.org/ )
(uses less than 5megs of RAM on voice...and less than 20 megs for video+audio calls)

it may work under wine.  (Surely there are similar things which are much lighter for TCL?)

1. SIP precedes the introduction of the stupid buzzword "cloud" by many years

2. Not sure what motivation there could ever be to run a windows version under wine...

right

well unless pjsua.tcz  does a similar thing to the SIP stuff i mentioned......then there is the motivation

Linphone is heavier?....(although it has a command line client)

jitsi and things seem heavy...a bit like skype

there is this for Linux
