Thanks for your answer. This is quite strange. I tried with a new
.config/gajim, which resulted in less crashes, but no success in audio
or video calls. The window appears and I can see my own video, but
nothing else happens. Sometimes I still see crashes as described before.
I tried using a STUN server and various settings for audio. My partner
is on Ubuntu Gnome and experiences the exactly same behavior as I do on
Debian Testing. With older versions of gajim and on another, older
installation of Debian I had a similar experience. Can you think of
anything I am missing here? Is there anything related to the jabber
server running? (I am using jabber.ccc.de, I think they have ejabberd.
This works with empathy though). I am not sure how to use audio/video
test settings.

thanks for your support
