SIP video call with E71

SIP video call with E71

Does anyone knows how to use E71 for doing a video call using SIP? It seems that E71 supports h.263 codec for other purposes other that SIP. Is there any way to set h.263 also for SIP?

Re: SIP video call with E71

Currently, there is no standard for video over SIP - so this would not be supported until such standards are created. Current solutions out there appear to be proprietary and some even require server hardware to support video.

Re: SIP video call with E71

I'm talking about registering E71 in an Asterisk server, and yes, video calls in sip is a standard thing where you may use video codecs like h.263, h.263+ and h.264 wideband.

 

All asterisk server support it, and for terminal equipment, you may use several brands like Polycom, Grandstream and for softphone Counterpath's X-Lite and Bria, for example.

 

The question was, as Nokia E71 supports h.263 and video calls over UMTS using  it, and also video recording using this codec, why not using it also for video calls over SIP?

Re: SIP video call with E71

bhumbro,

 

thanks for your reply. I'm able to do regular voice over sip calls, so that's not my question. I'm using an edgeBOX multiservice business gateway (www.edgebox.com)  and I have my E71 registered there and it works perfectly. The question is that I can't find a place where to define even the voice codecs on my mobile phone, so the question is, as you can do a video call over GSM/UMTS using h.263 codec is there any way to the same but using SIP call (aka Internet call)?

 

Thanks again

Re: SIP video call with E71

You can set it up in Nimbuzz.  Go to Nimbuzz.com and download their free app.  Settings for Skype allow internet calls, and you can set it up specfically to use the wifi connection.

Re: video call with E71

I downloaded Skype to my E71 and I am using WiFi only with a 3G SIM and I don't get any option for Video Call on the Skype.  Why?  Do I have to download something else?  I don't know what is SIP or anything - I am very basic when it comes to these things, even my manual is in every language except the one I need - pls help...

p.s. any chance to recieve a manual in English?
