VoIP + SIP???
This probably belongs to the GE list but I drop a note here anyway since I think GE should be part of the Haiku site instead of stuffed away somewhere in secrecy ;P
Has anyone any plans on preparing Haiku for VoIP integration etc? I would imagine VoIP or whatever protocol is used really need high responsiveness (which is generally no problem for BeOS/Haiku stufF). However, since VoIP will become more and more of an important part of the computer world, may I suggest that either the Media KIT or another Kit called "Voice Interaction" to be created. You devs probably knows where to place this better than me.
The whole point of the kit would be to prepare for Voice applications where you separate Input for Voice and Protocol used to communicate a bit separately and to make it easier to port applications. By developing a voice API.
LAter on an app like IMKit would simply call this API and make it easy to enable Voice, and then simply just call for the right protocol (like SIP or Skype) for doing the actual transactions.
Also, a lot of multiplayer games are demanding voice so this would easy for them to utilize as well I guess, and the only thing they would need is the actual "host" for the talk using whatever protocol they may see fit.
Maybe all of this is already sorted out, but I thought I'd try to raise some ideas here, and hopefully it might take off. If not codingwise, maybe documentationwise this will be covered?
What does people think?
