Technically it means Quadro will proxy the video codecs (H.263 and H.264)both in signaling and in RTP, so two video-enabled phones (including softphones) being extensions of Quadro can call each other, can also call to external video-enabled phone and recieve calls from video-enable external calls via SIP.
What refers to Grandstream GXV3000, I have not tested with that phone personally, but as far as I know, it should work with that phone. In any case, please try to make such a video call, and if something goes wrong, we can fix that (don't forget to enable the video codecs on the extenision!!).

Well, install 5.1.17 and use it :)
The sip to sip callback is working there. What kind of help do you need?

Question for RTP Steaming, does possible to take music for web radio station


ex.

Theoretically - yes, there is at least one program which can receive Internet Radio, and also can send PCM in RTP stream - the Video LAN (VLC).

Practically I have spent several hours trying to make latest VLC 0.9.9 stream RTP in PCMU format from a Internet Radio source, and it turns out that this is still not correctly supported in that tool. VLC can receive Internet Radio correctly, but cannot correctly transcode/resample/downmix the stream to PCMU, 8KHz.

If somebody is able to make that program send correct RTP stream, please let me know.. On paper it has all that abilities, so maybe the problem is in configuration..?

David,

Can the Epygi play Ogg Vorbis files ?

Hmm... Dear Aussie Crew member (aka Kevin), "Epygi" is the name of the company.. The company itself cannot play "Ogg Vorbis files".. :D, so I suppose you are talking about something else.

What do you mean saying Epygi (Epygi=Quadro, or Epygi=EMS)?

KSComs

I would have liked to hear Epygi playing an OGG of Fur Ellise or something like that... or even you Hrant and the others get together and become the First Epygi Barbershop Quartette :D

I was meaning the Quadro ... if it can play or would it be able to play OGG Vorbis sound files...

There is some great streaming server applications that doesnt care if its run on windows or linux which might suit.... but they use Vorbis OGG sound files..

ie http://icecast.org/

Well, Kev, if we decide to organise a such kind of performance, I will definitely notify you, so we can have a Quintet (some Aussie flavour will make it sound unique.. like kind a Brendan Perry's voice in DCD.. :) ).

Related to the rest, I am not aware of any plans to implement OGG Vorbis. And even if we ever think about something similiar we will definitely pay more attension to MP3: even if OGG quality is believed to be better, MP3 is still much more widespread.

David

ShoutCAST too.

Well, as far as I can see from ShoutCAST website, they are streaming in completely different format (streaming MP3 audio), which has no relation to formats used in telephony, so ShoutCAST cannot be used with Quadro or any other PBX device. Actually this looks like just a cool application for PC users.
If some telephony device will support MP3 streaming (be able to play MP3 stream), then ShoutCAST could be used with that device, as well as VLC. But I am not familiar with any PBX device supporting pure MP3 streaming yet.

Best regards,
David

բարի լույս , բարի օր, բարի երեկո David and the rest of the Epygi crew ...

Will the Polycom 4xx series handsets make the compatable list in the up and coming release of firmware for the M32X or do I still need to utilise the Polycom 330 template or other at worst case for a few more months ?
