Libjingle - Google Talk Voice and P2P Interoperability Lib

Would love to see a Jingle channel in Asterisk…

[quote=“Google”]Libjingle is a set of components provided by Google to interoperate with Google Talk’s peer-to-peer and voice calling capabilities. The package includes source code for Google’s implementation of Jingle and Jingle-Audio, two proposed extensions to the XMPP standard that are currently available in experimental draft form.

We are releasing this source code as part of our ongoing commitment to promoting consumer choice and interoperability in Internet-based real-time-communications. The Google source code is made available under a Berkeley-style license, which means you are free to incorporate it into commercial and non-commercial software and distribute it.[/quote]



[quote=“Google Talkabout”]For me, the most exciting thing about working on Google Talk is having the opportunity to help develop an instant messaging network based on open standards. By using XMPP, an open standard protocol, we give Google Talk users the choice of what client to use, and make it easy for developers to implement their own clients and innovative services on top of our network. From day one, everyone has been encouraged to connect to the service with any XMPP-capable client they choose.

Today, two major advances have been made in the openness of our voice capabilities. This morning, the Jabber Software Foundation (JSF) introduced two new proposed extensions to XMPP, known as Jingle and Jingle Audio. These enhancements describe how to write software compatible with Google Talk’s voice features and have been introduced into the JSF’s standards process where they’ll be reviewed and improved by the XMPP community. To make implementing these extensions even easier, we’ve released a library we call “libjingle.”[/quote]


More interesting insight:

[quote=“Claw - Gizmo Project”]BTW - I was wrong previously when I stated that Gizmo is already using LibJingle. (We’re not using it)

There have been successfull voice calls between Gizmo and Googletalk in internal testing. But those calls were made using SIP not XMPP. (Google has an XMPP/SIP gateway that has not been made live yet) - Source[/quote]

Waiting with baited breath.
