[Freeswitch-users] Choppy voive in conference from fritzbox to freeswitch (ptime:30 msecs)

Hello Michael,

I made some tests with Freeswitch and Fritzbox and found by Wireshark that:
within one call

    * Freeswitch starts sending 20msec packets, then after ~0,2 second
      sends 30msec packets
    * FritzBox always sends 30msec packets.

The average jitter is below 2 msec in both directions.
The below logs shows that Freeswitch considers the FritzBox to be broken
and starts using 30msec packets. But there is no SIP message from FS to
Fritzbox telling him that FB will use 30msec packets. SDP from FS to
Fritzbox always shows ptime:20

BTW: We can ship you a FritzBox if you need one for testing.

Best regards

ptime 20 but what they meant to say was 30
This issue has so far been identified to happen on the following broken
Linksys/Sipura aka Cisco
We will try to fix it but some of the devices on this list are so broken
who knows what will happen..
