I’m using a bunch of Grandstream phones (e.g., WP820, GXV3370, etc.) along with an Axis A8105-E Doorstation.
When connecting peer-to-peer early video is working (e.g., someone rings to the doorbell and the phone starts showing video and ringing the phone). When connecting through FreePBX the early media/video is just blank.
I think I’ve tried every permutation/configuration option to get this going. Does anyone know how to get early media/video going with FreePBX? My preference is to run the doorstation through FreePBX so I can use ringgroups and voicemail.
I purchased a Grandstream UCM6202 to test. Setup the Axis Doorstation and grandstream phones to it. Added all the phones to a ringgroup. When the axis rings the ringgroup, video is displayed on each phone.
Sorry about that. I thought my original message was clear.
I did watch the video … but if you watch closely this person is also having the same issue I am.
When the Axis triggers the extensions in FreePBX/Asterisk there should be a preview of the video BEFORE answering the phone (Early Media). This works just fine with a UCM6202, but using FreePBX/Asterisk early media/preview video is not being shown.
So the complaint is “the video is not being showed before answering the call”.
According to this link https://gerrit.asterisk.org/c/asterisk/+/8398, The Asterisk supports early media vith video streams. You will need to investigate your SIP traces to verify if an SDP with a video codec is arising from the Axis device (when it rings).
Is it that important to support the early media on a video stream? I think that it is not that necessary, since the door will not get opened until the person would be validated by the other side.
(always good to see who is there first if one of many early media recipiants recognize the procrient , press the open button , unless of course the miscreant puts their thumb over the lens, then you can throw boiling oil with #86 )
