> Ciao FreeSWITCHers,
> mod_skypiax is now usable, for Skype calls and finding bugs :-).
> Its wiki page (http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Skypiax, at the moment
> it's just the README files concatenated) begins like that:
> This software (Skypiax) uses the Skype API but is not endorsed,
> certified or otherwise approved in any way by Skype.
> Skypiax is an endpoint (channel driver) that use the Skype client as
> an interface to the Skype network, and allows incoming and outgoing
> Skype calls from/to FreeSWITCH (that can be bridged, originated,
> answered, etc. as in all other endpoints, eg sofia/SIP).
> Think at Skypiax as similar to OpenZAP for analog lines: for each
> channel you need an interface (a Skype client). So, for eg, for two
> concurrent calls, you will need two channels, two Skype clients
> running on server.
> If your server's Skype client(s) has got the Skype credits, Skypiax
> works for SkypeOut calls too.
> You can use it from the dialplan, eg with the provided modified
> "default.xml" dialplan, you can call
> "sip:skype/remote_skypename__OR__skypeout_phonenumber" for calling via
> the Skype network from a SIP softphone to remote_skypename or to a
> phone number via SkypeOut, or you can call the "2908" extension from
> any phone to be bridged to the Skype Test Call).
> With the provided skypiax.conf.xml all incoming Skype calls will be
> routed to the "5000" extension, the IVR in default FreeSWITCH
> installation.
> On Linux the Skype client uses a lot of CPU. To lower its CPU
> consumption, you can use the Xvfb "fake" X server and (more important)
> the snd-dummy ALSA "fake" sound driver. Scripts are provided for this.
> But for a low number of channels it would works with regular X servers
> and ALSA drivers.
> On a Linux machine with 3GB ram and a quad core intel6600, we got no
> problem with 20 concurrent calls, and plenty of room for adding more
> Skypiax channels (100? not tested).
> On Windows, no need to do anything special, the Skype client is lighter on CPU.
> Skypiax is now pre-beta, but usable for testing and finding bugs :-).
> You can download Skypiax source code with subversion with the command:
> svn co http://svn.freeswitch.org/svn/freeswitch/branches/gmaruzz/src/mod/endpoints/mod_skypiax
> mod_skypiax
> then, follow the README file in the mod_skypiax directory.
