#14620 new enhancement

Allow disabling of vv support per account

Reported by: cdhowie Owned by: sadrul
Milestone: 2.10.1 Component: finch (gnt/ncurses)
Version: 2.10.0 Keywords: vv voice video

Description

Finch does not currently appear to allow disabling of voice/video (vv) support at runtime, either globally or per-account. This is an issue for me that results from a combination of two factors: I use Finch over ssh, and Google Talk's servers appear to prefer connections that have been recently active.

This means that when someone tries to start a voice session with me, Google Talk routes it to Finch instead of the Gmail tab in my web browser. I cannot receive the call in Finch, as I lack any sort of audio connection to that machine.

My three options seem to be disabling my Gmail account in Finch entirely, recompiling Finch without vv support, or rejecting the session in Finch and then calling the other party back in Gmail. None of these solutions are particularly appealing; I would prefer the option to disable vv capabilities either globally in the preferences window, or per-account.

I made an account here just to +1 this request. I'm a heavy user of finch, and would love to see the ability to disable vv in the preferences (ideally per-account).

Thanks,

Sean
