Making video calls – Asterisk tutorial


To be able to send video during a call, codec h263 and video support must be enabled. This is done by adding three lines in the sip.conf file (Location: /etc/asterisk/sip.conf).
Add the following lines in the [general] tab of the file.
videosupport = yes        ; Enable video 
allow = h263             ; H.263 is our video codec 
allow = h263p             ; H.263p is the enhanced video codec


Reload the sip.conf file by running the following command in the CLI console: reload
Config in Softphone
Arrow Click “Softphone”
Arrow Click “Preferences”
asterisk video call
 Arrow Click “Video Codecs”
Arrow Verify that h263 and h263+ are selected
ArrowClick “OK”
asterisk video call
Arrow Click the video (Webcam) icon to display the video
asterisk video call
Arrow Dial the other sip phone (number 1002)
