How do you disable Video on Jabber calls

I have the latest v9.1.0 Jabber Client for Windows. When I place or recieve a call and connect with another person with video enabled, how do you disable this? I can disable the video from my side from starting, but not on the inbound side. With video enabled on a remote call the audio will sometimes become choppy because video affects the bandwith.

Reset Cisco Jabber client , if not working add Never start calls with video setting to Jabber configuration file and set it to false or disable this in the Jabber client settings

Re: How do you disable Video on Jabber calls

Simply you can do it without the config file , in call manager , go to the Enterprise Parameter, Under cisco jabber, the setting never start call with video always , set it to true , i just did that today in one of my deployments and worked just fine

Re: How do you disable Video on Jabber calls

The Cisco Jabber file can be uploaded to CUCM Publisher that is acting as TFTP server, upload the file with your <StartCallWithVideo>false</StartCallWithVideo> setting and restart the TFTP service and browse the file in IE or Chrome at http://X.X.X.X:6970/jabber-config.xml whereis x.x.x.x is the IP address of your CUCM/TFTP server , and validate that the setting is exist , if so then reset two Jabber clients and login again and make a test call , should start as audio only and you still has the option to escalate the call to video if you want

Notice: you cad use the enterprise parameter to easily achieve this , i use this option a lot , also don't add to Jabber config file setting that you don't need , just keep it simple
