I totally agree with Justin.
I still think that some libraries for NAT and RTC under a liberal
license with bindings to the major programming languages would help.
The same applies to codecs. Most commercial software is using GIPS which
has excellent codecs but is often incompatible to the free codecs used
in Open Source software.
Did anything change on GIPS licensing since they were acquired by Google?
Most people use Skype because it A) just works and B) has excellent
voice quality. We can fix A with interop testing, but I don't know how
we can fix B. Is somebody on the list which has experience with free codecs?
