Hello folks,

I'm looking for a SIP client, that can do voice/video. On linux I've used ekiga, twinkle, but I've not found one that looks good for MacOS.

Anyone got any pointers?

Thanks

G'day devilkin,

Have you already tried xmeeting?


Also I just wondered that seeing that Mac OS X is Unix based, maybe those above programs could run on your Mac? Just a thought ...

Beat me to it by a few minutes Pulse-8! Yep, the best one I have found to date is Xmeeting. There is also its humbler partner, Xohphone, also available at the same site, but I think that Xohphone does just H.323.

BTW, are you actually looking for a SIP client, or just a video calling client? If just video calling, consider Skype (www.skype.com). Computer to computer calls are completely free and the quality far exceeds what you get on Gnomemeeting/ekiga. PLUS, it is designed to work seamlessly behind NAT'ing firewalls, which has Gnomemeeting/ekiga is not!

I used to use Gnomemeeting for all my video calling (I run Arch Linux 0.7.2 in addition to Mac OS X - on different computers of course!) but have now switched to Skype exclusively.

Yeah, I know Skype, but I'm not a very big fan of it. The quality has always been worse than anything I've gotten through SIP/H.323
