Hi Ulrich,

<p>you distroyed my evening today ;-). Im only sitting here
and follow the videoconferencing thread ;-)).

Yes, this was right. There is a great discussion and perhaps we got
some points more yet.

I dont have any glue about jabber server components, but it could be
the right way. we have to took in consideration, that we have at least
tree chanels to go for : administration, audio and video.

So, if we make a jabber server component, it should handle all of this.
My idea was to use jabber only to start the connection and to get the
IP of the other client. Afterwards the client's establish a connection
withou the need of jabber. I dont know if a server component is better here.

Yes, could be right. But we have to thing about that a stand alone
solution is more flexible and can also be implemented in other
messenger (is this fait to tell this here <d&r>?).

I dont know what the exact timing is, but we can convert avrelay
to C++. We have to test the performance then. I can't say how much 
better it will go.

Yes, i agree. We dont should reinvent the wheel.
So i be with you to convert it to C++. So we can also make sure
that it runs on linux and windows.

Thanks, i have downloaded it and will review it in the next days.
Today there was no time to look to it ;-)).

Best wishes,

PS: I will post this also to the Sony Clie Developer Forum.
     They have a cool PDA with WLan and Webcam.
     That would be realy cool :-))-
