        this is what i'm doing… made it from the ground up till everything works except video in this specific browser
      • Samot
        Oh so it's not the middle of the night anymore. So I won't feel bad about this...

      • @file: What is the targeted date for Chan_SIP full deprecation? It was mentioned over the weekend "this year" by tm1000 in a post on the FreePBX forum. I'm just curious if that's 2018 or by Oct 2019?
      • file
        the earliest it would happen is, um, 18? I think?
      • well define deprecation
      • Samot
        Like gone.
      • file
        18 I think
      • Samot
        OK.
      • post-factum
        no, it's not the middle of the night, and honestly i need audio calls only, but hey, i want everything to work
      • Samot
        Ooooooo........
      • file
      • Samot
        Does that mean things like canreinvite or other long since deprecated settings/functions are going buh bye?
      • file
        it means chan_sip itself.
      • elyob has quit
      • Samot
        Well I meant in general.
      • I know Asterisk likes to deprecate but not remove things....
      • "Yeah, it's there but you shouldn't use it really."
      • file
        the review is for making it more clear not to use it, but not removing it
      • Samot
        Ahh, it's going no-load.
      • Well it was a fun ride.
      • I will admit though, come 17/18 releases it will be fun to watch the freak out.
      • seanbright
        ...
      • just don't upgrade
      • Samot
        I'm already on the path to PJSIP at this point.
      • I mean after reviewing the performance notes/stats and some of my own testing....
      • It's the better choice.
      • But you know there is going to be a sub-set in the community that is going to have a coronary when they load 17+ and don't see Chan_SIP right away.
      • seanbright
        yeah. they'll have to just go back to 16.
      • Samot
        I like that attitude.
      • seanbright
        there's a compulsion to upgrade
      • i'm not sure what that is
      • samwierema joined the channel
      • Samot
        Well, at some point upgrades are needed.
      • seanbright
        why is that?
      • Samot
        Well at some point the vendor will stop supporting or maintaining releases.
      • jamesaxl has quit
      • seanbright
        ok
      • i run asterisk 11 & 15 in production
      • neither of which are supported
      • Samot
        Sure.
      • Says the guy working at Digium.
      • seanbright doesn't work at digiu
      • seanbright
        m*
      • Samot
        OK.
      • seanbright
        there are two types of asterisk users
      • people that make money off of asterisk, and people that use asterisk for personal use
      • Samot
        I'm not talking about hobbyists.
      • seanbright
        ok, so if you have a version of asterisk that works for your business, you shouldn't upgrade
      • unless you really need the new whizbang features of the next release
      • but if you do, you have to suck it up and deal with the not-so-whizbangy stuff
      • in short, the chan_sip writing has been on the wall for a long time
      • Samot
        I know.
      • That's why I said it will be amusing to watch the freak out.
      • file
        in the end, people have to take responsibility for their systems - be it companies that make solutions, or users, and be aware/plan for things
      • Samot
        Well right now Mikrotik is taking a bashing over the exploits found lately....
      • But it does turn out Mikrotik has fixed all those issues MONTHS before the exploits where found, however, about 80% of the user base has yet to update their systems.
      • seanbright
        which dovetails in the 'tak[ing] responsibility' angle
      • Samot
        So when the reports are done, it just looks like a lot of exposed systems in production and that has somehow become the vendors fault.

      • file
        lol
      • I'm going to try not to be involved too much, although I doubt that'll last, as it's not a battle or thing I care about :P
      • Samot
        Even better if that was the backing track to a dedication montage video for Chan_SIP...

      • Like they do at award shows when someone dies.
