Openfire 3.9.1 has been released

Yesterday's release of Openfire 3.9.0 had some problems with packaging of the release.  Bouncycastle signed jar files were getting packed, which then caused problems when Openfire attempted to load them.  We have hopefully fixed this issue and cleaned up a few other details and are proud to announce a 3.9.1 release!

Jitsi Videobridge with Openfire and WebRTC

The Jitsi project have just announced that Jitsi Videobridge is now compatible with WebRTC and can be used as a central relaying point for web video conferences (or web+Jitsi). You can check out shot of a first prototype here. A big thank you to Emil Ivov,  Philipp Hancke (estos.de) and Lyubomir Marinov (jitsi.org) for making this happen and sharing it with the rest of us

 

I was keen to see this in action with Openfire as Jitsi Videobridge works fine as an Openfire plugin and it will add the much needed and anticipated video streams forwarding/relaying feature to WebRTC applications as Red5 does to Flash Player. I copied all the required files to my Openfire server, made some minor adjustments for Openfire and as you can see below, it works!!

 

Image2.jpg

However it is early days. This is all leading edge code still in development. Jitsi Videobridge as an internal component from an Openfire plugin does not yet work because the bouncycastle library in Openfire needs an upgrade to the latest version that supports DTLS-SRTP. It only worked as an external component. I will try to get this fixed for Openfire 3.9.0 which is currently in alpha.

 

** UPDATE **

 

Jitsi Videobridge plugin for Openfire is now available here at igniterealtime.org with the webrtc-based video conferencing application embedded as a web service. A complete web muti-person video conference solution in one box. You will need Openfire 3.9.0 to try it out.

 

In the meantime, Claude Stabile has generously made a live version available for us to try at https://webrtc.free-solutions.org:8443/videobridge.html

 

** FURTHER UPDATE **

 

The first draft of the COnferences with LIght BRIdging (Colibri) XEP that is used to manage video conferences with Jitsi Videobridge is now out. You can find it here. All we need now is a volunteer to setp forward and add it to Smack/aSmack and Spark using the Java bells library

 

** YET MORE UPDATE***

 

The first version of the Jitsi jitmeet web conferencing application is now out and has replaced the demo web application in the Jitsi Videobridge plugin. It has MUC chat with some other needed features like mute audio/video. Expect some more before Openfire 3.9.0 is released. As usual, you can checkout the latest code in the ignite realtime VCS, build and try it out yourself.

 

To help those cannot build openfire 3.9.0 from source. Do the following

 

Grab Openfire 3.9.0 nightly build from here

Download jitsivideobridge.jar file from here

** LAST UPDATE **

 

There is now a dedicated ignite space for jitsi-videobridge plugin. Please post any issues, questions and contributions here. I have also posted a blog about the changes I have made to the plugin to support a server-side focus agent.

Openfire 3.8.2 has been released

The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the release of version 3.8.2 of Openfire! Downloads for various platforms are available here.

 

Openfire is a real time collaboration (RTC) server licensed under the Open Source Apache license. It uses the only widely adopted open protocol for instant messaging, XMPP (also called Jabber). Openfire is incredibly easy to setup and administer, but offers rock-solid security and performance.

 

This release adds BOSH functionality for setting CORS headers and improves Pub-Sub support. There is also a new Atlassian Crowd provider!  Various stability improvements were made as well. The changelog lists these and other changes in more detail.

WebRTC with Firefox, Chrome and Openfire

Now that Firefox Beta has WebRTC enabled by default, it was time to upgrade the WebRTC audio/video demo to support Firefox. Even though changes were minimal and I could do Firefox<->Firefox as well as Chrome<->Firefox, there is still an outstanding issue that is a show stopper for me.

 

Image1.jpg

 

Firefox does not yet support trickle ICE candidates and consequently does not work with Jingle Relay Nodes. This means we cannot use Openfire to act as a media bridge and relay media when both WebRTC peers cannot connect directly with each other as we can do with Chrome.

 

I am hoping this will be fixed before formal release in June. In the meantime, you can test it at http://redfire.4ng.net/webrtc. Just make sure you have Firefox beta or latest Chrome browsers. As usual, source code is attached for those curious to see or reuse in their own applications.
