Description:Gtalk calls connect, but there is no audio in either direction. This issue presented after an upgrade from 10.0.0rc1 (where Gtalk calls were working just fine) to 10.1.0 with no other configuration changes.

Forum user docdavid reports the same issue in 10.2.0rc1:

In searching other open issues for anything similar I ran across ASTERISK-18971, where a commenter noted that installing a patch to address that issue resulted in a no-audio problem like this one.

I've acknowledged this issue.  Please note that chan_gtalk is an extended support module, and hence supported by the Asterisk community.  Response times may reflect that.  More information on module support states can be found here:

I confirm this issue. I'm using Gentoo on x86-64. Asterisk 10.0.1 works great - Asterisk 10.1 results in this issue. The configuration is identical between the 2 versions. This is a definite regression.

The only change to chan_gtalk is related to https://reviewboard.asterisk.org/r/1553/

Check out branches/10, revert the patch and see if it works.

$ svn co http://svn.asterisk.org/svn/asterisk/branches/10
$ cd 10
$ svn merge -c -346087 .
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

Then you know where the issue lies.

Unable to reproduce this is trunk.
Is it still an issue?

By: Josh Freeman (j.freeman) 2012-02-29 22:32:12.445-0600

I compiled and install trunk r357621 tonight and am still seeing the issue.

ok, can you attach the console debug output during a call with 'jabber set debug on'

By: Josh Freeman (j.freeman) 2012-03-01 14:31:49.640-0600

OK, I turned on Jabber debug and captured console output while I made a call using that same trunk revision and had no audio.

Then, just for grins, I reverted back to Asterisk 10.0.0 and saw that audio worked fine again. I hadn't previously proven that to be true on my system.

Can I pick up something here to assist in the PD process ?

Is this issue is resolve or not in latest version. I faced the same prob in 10.8.0.
I am able to connect the call successfully but no audio and signal in gtalk.

Unfortunately, this issue wasn't addressed during the bug-fix lifetime of Asterisk 10.  The good news is that Asterisk 11 and greater have chan_motif and res_xmpp, which are a rewrite of XMPP support within Asterisk, and are supported.

We'd encourage you to try that out instead and see if that clears things up for you.
