Jitsi (previously SIP Communicator) is an audio/video and chat communicator that supports protocols such as SIP, XMPP/Jabber, AIM/ICQ, Windows Live, Yahoo! and many other useful features.

Download Jitsi Portable V1.0.3967 (42.7 MB) @ http://sourceforge.net/projects/jitsiportable/files/jitsi-1.0.3967-x86-windows-portable.zip/download
Extract the ZIP package to a folder of your choice and double click on jitsi-portable.bat. Or launch jitsi-non-portable-exe with the --config=./data parameter.

License: LGPL

Reasons why this is posted in the discussion subforum:
1) The program is Java based.
2) A JRE is included in the package (which I think is not allowed).
3) Although it seems portable and stealth, my test was superficial: I don't have SIP, Facebook, Yahoo!, Windows Live, Jabber, ICQ, AIM or Bonjour accounts (despite appearances, I don't live inside a Tupperware).

With that lack of online social activity, no one would guess it...

I've seen this a few times but obviously didn't look close enough:

Quote:
* Wideband audio
* Call Encryption, OTR Chat Encryption
* Multi-user voice chats
* Integration with Microsoft Outlook and Apple Address Book
* Presence Integration with Microsoft Outlook: make calls, start chats and see your contacts’ presence from within Microsoft Outlook
* Support for LDAP directories and Google Contacts
* [Probably the biggest one] Cross protocol conference calls: call your contacts over different accounts and protocols and join them in a single conference call.
* Out for Win/Mac/Linux

That's a monster. Good find.

The program recently (or at least since the last time I tested it) added some WebRTC (video conference) components and desktop sharing, which is bringing it into the space of an open source competitor to Skype.

The portable version mentioned in the initial post was uploaded to SF.net but hasn't been updated in a year.

Old thread update:

This program is still seeing active updates and seems like a very strong open message program, but not much happening on the portability side. As far as the official team, there was a request for portable version: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi/issues/128 … but unfortunately doesn’t look like that got any interest. Although it was brought up over at PA, it doesn’t look like there’s much movement: http://portableapps.com/node/35611 .

The latest version of Jitsi - 2.8.5426, cannot connect to Facebook and Yahoo- Facebook switched from XMPP (Jabber) to a proprietary protocol while Yahoo seems to try to obstruct other clients to connect to their network. Anyway, it is a pity that Jitsi developers neglect the requests for a portable edition of their messenger, which is not bad at all.

A screen-shot of the Yahoo connection error:

I am tempted to use a four-letter obscene word for both Facebook and Yahoo. As for Yahoo, they seem to do their best to go the way of the dodo.
