Our team work on VoiP ( video/audio software) called Gnome Meeting. Below you will find a status af the current situation. To be able to do further test and improve the system, we need betatester.
Your help is welcome ! ;)
People interested in the process will have to contact us to receive the Gatekeeper IP to log on the same server.
Thank you !
Concerning the system, it works this way:
Gnome meeting is the VOIP H323 software client
To be able to call someone having the same system (or Net Meeting on
Windows) you need his IP address. To avoid typing the IP address for
each call, we set up a gatekeeper.
and the applet java gkgui (GUI)
Using the Gatekeeper you can call directly somebody using the login
For example in gnome meeting: "callto:marc"
The Gatekeeper will resolve his IP address!
Another software that has been tested: openmcu
It allow multiconference. When using MCU you can chat and see multiple
users at the same time in a room. The gatekeeper sees the room as an
h323 user. Paul, Marc, Sophie ... call the room and they automatically
see and speak as they were together.
In development we have now a LDAP solution to make a community as gnome
meeting and his ils.seonix.com XDAP.
Why? We want to call an email address and not an IP address or a user
name known by few people. With this LDAP you can find the other user.
Another goal is to have a whiteboard on gnome meeting. We do not have
this working yet.
We will have to think a solution to announce the multiconferece,
through a website for example: Message: Meeting at 16:15 on conference
The goal is to have the gatekeeper, OpenMCU and LDAP running on the
same machine, a Pegasos, to have a complete packaged solution.
