Thank you for your recommendations. I still haven't been able to piece this puzzle together. I have downloaded Jitsi and Blink but haven't been able to get them to work to dial out numbers when sip hyperlinks are clicked on from a web browser.
Below is how this feature that I am trying to figure out with Jitsti/Blink is currently working fine with X-lite:
X-lite makes the following registry entry:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CounterPath\X-Lite\x-lite.exe" -dial="%1"
On X-lite we use the following settings for setting up sip accounts:
username, password & domain/server.
Subsequently, on a web page if user clicks on a hyperlink such as [a href="sip:1112223333"]1112223333[/a], it will dial out 1112223333 through X-lite. Life is great
But X-lite has a problem with our office network and I need to figure out an alternate solution.
With Blink, I have succeeded at setting up our SIP account and I can make calls through it.
Following what I know from X-lite, I updated the registry entry to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CounterPath\Blink\blink.exe"
Now, when I click on any sip hyperlink in a web browser, it opens up a new instance of blink.exe file but it does not dial the number.
It seems there should be a command line argument that needs to be specified in the registry entry but I cannot locate any information on what it might be
This is the same problem I am having every corner I am turning with any soft phone. Zoiper might be capable but information on their website suggests only paid versions have sip url handling.
And I wish one of these other softphone providers had taken the initiative like counterpath's x-lite to make it a feature for them to self register for sip url handling? Anyone seconds this notion?
Can anyone please point out a softphone, its corresponding registry entry and html hyperlink to make this work?
This poor fella had the same question back in 2010 and never got an answer; »lists.ag-projects.com/pipermail/ ··· 702.html
How can you kind folks allow for me to be the next casualty?
Thank you lots!
