    Get a headphone with mic or headphone and use the internal mic. Problem solved.

    thanks for your reply LouisBelle,

    a headphone is a solution but not optimal.
    msnsa skype is able to do it without echo and infinite audio loop.
    i'll test v2.8 for improvements.

    I'm sure jitsi team will be more than happy to receive your code patches for improved audio handling. otherwise you might want to consider raising incentive to improve this by throwing in some cash via freedomsponsors.org. The thing with opensource software is, that someone needs to develop the code. And if you don't have the NSA backing you up with tax money or microsoft, which we know works closely with the NSA, this isn't as easy.

    But yes, skype noise cancellation works great. It just comes at a price and that is your freedom.

    It sounds like you are trying to test it in the same room which is not a real world use — of course you are going to get feedback if the mics are pointed at the speakers.
    If not, and you are getting feedback with just 1 machine in the room you can lower your Input Gain and if you can control the mic/speaker placement, change it so the mic isn't pointed at the speaker — in fact you could test it in the same room with a sound barrier of some sort. If you are using the internal mic, then get external directional mic and you can set it up properly.

    Feedback cancellation is a feature not everything has, and if you are using it to make a call within the same room, this might not even be cancelable. You could request that feature, but if you are asking for 2 machines in the same room to work without feedback, don’t be surprised if you get a less than respectful reply because it would be a silly request.

    Jitsi is great - it offers encrypted chat and encrypted audio chat. But the current stable and latest nightly both require Java 1.6 installed. So while offering security features, requiring such an old Java version and not working with the latest Java 1.8 basically ruins security. I'm not sure what the thought process behind this is, devs talk about priorities. But then again if this isn't a high priority, I do not know, what is. So one star for the current weak security situation with the very old Java 1.6 version. Back to 5 stars when that is resolved.

    Try the latest nightly and see if that works for you. I love comments like yours. If you experience issues and really want to get them solved, procedure for jitsi is: mail the devel mailing list and create a bug if asked to.

    Does this work with Google Voice via the Internet, or do I have to sign up with a separate SIP provider?
