How it works
Usually telecommunications is made of two things: media (transport of voice or video, encoding and decoding...), and signaling (routing calls, ringing, accepting a call etc...).
Liblinphone aims at combining the two things together and doing most things automatically. This makes it easier to the programmer to implement video calls in any application, without being an expert in VoIP and telecommunications.
Liblinphone is based on mediastreamer2 for voice/video streaming, and belle-sip for SIP signaling.
Liblinphone is dual licenced:
- open source license: GPL
- proprietary license can be ordered from Belledonne Communications, for people whishing to to integrate liblinphone in a closed source application.
