What happened to Tox?
Does it still leak your IP?
Doesn't Skype do better since Skype doesn't leak your IP address?
I managed to get my friends to use it.
Leaking IPs isnt a problem for me because I'm always on a VPN.
Also seems a lot more lightweight and usable than Skype. Not to mention proper Linux support
Me and my friends use it because it's less shitty than bloated Skype, but it has so many issues that we rarely use it.
We can't even get group calls to work on Tox and my IDs keep getting randomly wiped but that seems to have stopped now. Also I can't get video calls or showing my screen to work, so sadly I have to use Skype.
>peer to peer
BUT THEN MY FRIENDS MIGHT KNOW MY IP ADDRESS
What the fuck?
The point of tox was to be easy to set up and have a direct chat with people.
It died because it doesn't work well on mobile devices.
I used to talk with an anon about useless stuff in Tox a few months ago. He stopped coming online, unfortunately. I wish I could talk with him.
Aww, I was hoping you were him.
Yeah, its been a long time. It was fun to chat with him
Did you check his profile? It seems his last time online was yesterday.
Good, hes alive. Pic related.
if he comes back online, tell him to add me please
Add me if you want to talk about pic related.
I tried tox once
>slight echo in the background
>cuts out ever 20 seconds
>group calls with over 2 people have absolute garbage audio and cause tox to crash
Looks like I just have to give in to the botnet for now
This can be true, however;
>it's a very young project
>they are doing encrypted communications, which can be difficult
>it will be highly beneficial to have as an open source encrypted communication system for posterity
It does not leak your IP. The donation money was a problem with one developer, not with Tox itself.
So what if its not out of beta? Its perfectly usable. They could've called the current qTox a "1.0 stable release" and it would change literally nothing, because the program works.
