Nextcloud 13.0.4 on OpenSuse Leap 15.0
Talk 3.2.4 (Server)
Talk App 2.1.2, on Android 5 and 6 devices
first of all: No discussion Nextcloud is one of the coolest FOSS applications available, and TALK enhanced this, thanks to all who made this possible!!!
Started a while ago with Talk, installation etc. worked like a charme, no special settings serverside:
No TURN server specified
No signaling server (?, German " Signalisierungsserver") specified
Calls itself, both audio/video, between nextcloud users (currently my wife, our son, and me :slight_smile) works fine from start on, with older app releases already. Both audio/video calls from mobile to mobile, and also mobile to pc (also Linux). I was surprised that all calls seems to be a pure peer to peer call participants communication, checked my OpenSuse VPS during an established call, no noteworthy systemload during that video call. Pretty well designed :wink
Only thing currently NOT working is the signaling of calls, both audio and video, as far as I understood a feature of the new app? Nextcloud shows in Browser a msg “user … tried to contact you”, for calls and chat msgs, as before, but although new app allows to select separate ring tones for calls and msgs, nothing is signaled at the other party.
Both my wife’s tablet and my smartphone in front of me, tested both re-entering an existing conversation and trying to start a call, and also leaving the conversation, creating a new one and trying to start a call: No signaling, both call directions, from android 5 to 6, and vice versa.
As I coulnd’t find any documentation about Talk App’s feature, not sure if I missed something? Must signaling somehow be enabled? App rights missing, on the Android side? Must I have a “signaling server” (now?), although screen in admin view says “optional only for large installations, empty for internal signaling”?
Not a very big issue, as the calls itself are working fine, if both parties join on demand, but would be cool being able to use this new feature.
