As I mentioned in my original post, we tried Jitsi and could not get it to work.
Jitsi is not the only one to try, there are several more: Ekiga, Empathy, Yate, Psi, Twinkle, Pidgin, etc.
None of them uses a central registry and none of the ones we tried worked with my Chinese teacher.
Of course, there can never be a free "Skype replacement" that also _uses the Skype registry (and protocol), because the protocol is nonfree and secret.
But as I'm sure you all guessed, by "Skype replacement", I simply mean a method whereby I can easily (and for free) make a voice call to someone over the Internet.
