We have implemented support for fully Lync-compatible Desktop Screen
Sharing in Pidgin SIPE by funding the FreeRDP-project and made
everything Open Source.
You can actually see how it works quite easily on your local network
by git-cloning and compiling FreeRDP MASTER , starting up the FreeRDP
server-binary on one of your host, and then connect the FreeRDP-client
on another host to your socket and watch the shared screen. It is very
Now I wonder if there are some suitable spec for taking our stuff to
XMPP? The session is very similar to how File Transfer works, and I know
there is a XMPP-spec for that. Is there a spec for sending arbitrary
data? In order to make this work we had to add something called "x-data
raw" to the Farstream library, in order for the library to be able to
handle other stuff than just pure audio and video. I guess I am looking
for something similar applied to the XMPP-world.
I really think that getting nice and crisp (and fully open source)
Desktop Screen Sharing would be a highly appreciated feature.
What are your thoughts/comments/questions?
