Traveling, it often happens that you find a very slow and/or unstable internet connection but you still want to communicate with people outside your room. I am interested in a computer-computer or computer-android or android-android system. I don't want to broadcast classical music but just voice, so even if the quality is low as an old coin telephone, that would be good enough!
Skype was the most suggested option. But, I don't know if it is just placebo, but recently Skype seems to become rather heavy on bandwidth. In any case, I find only results from 5 to 10 years ago... a geological era from voip perspective. Nowadays even a web-browser (e.g
Hello) has a built in voip functionality (to me, it seems heavy as well). Somewhere I read that I need different codecs, but, frankly, I didn't understand it.
- Low Bandwidth flux
- 1 to 1 VoIP would be enough
- If the connection fall, then it reconnects quickly
- No need of webcam (if not super-light)
- (opt.) Linux friendly
I could even install my own server, if necessary
