(as you can see in the video) If my account was selected on the top of the window then I must disable and enable my account to get it work.

As I mentioned before we already know what the problem is, there is nothing to be discovered here. Until we do a complete re-haul of the transport layer in the underlying SIP stack library that blink uses, this feature cannot work except a few corner cases.

So your choices are to either not use it, or disable every other account (including bonjour).

You do not have the appropriate certificate authority to validate the server certificate, and even if you would, there is a problem in the libraries we use in blink that prevents the feature to work correctly if you have more than 1 account in blink (even if the other one is just a bonjour account).
