Eyebeam Video with Asterisk


#1

I see a lot of posts about individuals having difficulty getting Eyebeam video (Ver 1.1 3010n) running over Asterisk…Has anybody got it working properly and would you be kind enough to share the solution?

Thx,
Michael

Yes, I have run Eyebeam video with Asterisk, it is really just a sip.conf configuration setting:

[quote="/etc/asterisk/sip.conf"][general]
port=5060
bindaddr=0.0.0.0
tos=0x18
disallow=all
allow=ulaw
allow=alaw
allow=ilbc
allow=gsm
allow=h263p
allow=h263

allow=g729
maxexpirey=180
defaultexpirey=160
srvrlookup=yes
videosupport=yes
dtmfmode=rfc2833[/quote]

The settings relavent are bold.

This is my sip.conf. When I put videosupport=yes my SIP phones do register (sip show peers shows their IP address) but when I call their extensions I allways get message that they are on the phone. And calling person automaticly goes to voicemail. Have I done anything wrong?

Thank you for your time!

Got it working with help from Muppetmaster and other few tricks…Heres the full solution…Thx…

Make sure you specify the video codecs in the [general] section of sip.conf

[general]
videosupport=yes
disallow=all
allow=alaw
allow=h263p

In eyebeam make sure you have h263+ selected as h263+ is equal to h263p

Also to get the video working you need to press hold on each client first and then the video works.
