Talk about perfect timing! Cory Andrews over at VoIP Supply just post a great list of 20 open source soft phones. Nice work Cory!
From this list I found that the French soft phone formerly called OpenWengo has mutated into QuteCom. Best of all, it’s G.722 capable. That makes it a viable candidate for use on this Friday’s VUC call on wideband VoIP.
I quickly downloaded the software and installed it on my laptop. In just a few minutes I had it logged into FWD and tried the ZipDX web demo line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It worked! The bridge answered and reported that I was connected in wideband mode.
The call was choppy but that may have been because I was on my laptop and using a Wifi connection.
I’ll experiment with it a little more and see how it compares to the G.722 capable version of Eyebeam.
