Description Xavier Claessens 2011-11-04 06:27:42 UTC
Call1.Content iface does not explain at all in which cases we get more than one stream.

If I understood correctly the cases are (correct me if I'm wrong):

1) If there are multiple participants, then we COULD have one stream per remote participant. But depending on protocols, we could still have only one stream with many remote contacts in the case it does MultiCast.

2) With jingle when calling a contact connected from multiple resources, while ringing we'll have one stream per resource. When one resource accept all other streams get removed.

3) something else?

1. There could be multiple contacts per stream in the case it does multicast or in the case there is a server or something that does mixing or multiplexing.

2. I think when you do jingle forking, you would have multiple Endpoints, but a single stream.

Made a patch to add a rational.
Comment 3 Olivier Crête 2011-11-07 07:23:25 UTC
Jingle style forking is just a name I made up as its different from "SIP forking" (in which the server sends the same Invite to all the remote endpoints).

ok, merged.
