How to make a Video conference Using Asterisk

Postby criz » Sat Jul 02, 2011 2:52 am

Hi,

How to make a video conference using asterisk.

My clients are in different location. SO i want them in one group. So how can i make that.



Which one is the best Codec for video conference ?
Which type of camera is needed for the conference ?
What will be the server configuration ?
What is the bandwidth needed ?
what about the internet connection speed ?


Please tell me these things.

Is there any software developed using Asterisk ?
If its there then please tell me that software name and website link.

In XLITE softphone, there is a window for video conferece. But i think its for video call.
How can i use the Xlite softphone for conference?

Regards,

Criz

Asterisk only supports point to point video. There may be third party add ons.
