Hi Claus,

Many thanks for your support. Sorry that my information was not detailed

We found one of our servers that we can make a video call successfully with
the situation mentioned in first email. Maybe there is something changed
incidentally in that server. We will continue to investigate and give you
more details later.

Thanks and Regards,
