    Makes sense

  2. tom

    Never heard of Siskin

    But jingle calls work on it?

    ยป <thndrbvr> Oh, maybe I'm misreading. Jitsi doesn't want to provide support to Dino? One of my friends recently decided to close down his Jitsi instance, since the native XMPP just wasn't working and he didn't use firefox or chrome. And Jitsi blocks you if you don't run a bigtech duopoly browser

    tom: blocks you if your browser doesn't have support, also when you host you can decide....what browser is so good but the duopoly hates it?

  6. MattJ

    They don't "block" browsers, but they can obviously only support browsers that have the features and APIs their app needs

  7. Licaon_Kter

    Firefox ESR works fine

    Try changing your user agent, see what happens.

    Viktor Lindberg: when you host.....it does not matter > One of my friends recently decided to close down *his* Jitsi instance

  10. Licaon_Kter

    Viktor Lindberg: why doesn't that other browser change its user agent? It works magically? Or features support matters?

  11. MattJ

    Viktor Lindberg: iirc that is the easiest way to test for some of the more obscure features (such as bandwidth optimisation)
