Re: Jitsi video calling for the General Meeting tomorrow
What's wrong with just using https://meet.jit.si ?That Jitsi server is indeed available for our use; it's sort of the demo
server for 8x8's enterprise Jitsi integration. However, that instance's
always suffice for our meeting.
Congratulations on the online Linux Plumbers Conference :) I'd certainlyI'd suggest that Jitsi is more appropriate for our use than BBBI don't quite agree with this statement, but then I'm biased: Linux
agree with you that BBB is generally better suited to a conference - not
to mention lighter on system resources that Jitsi, which does make a
difference when your participants number in 3+ figures!
However, its chief benefit for conferences would, I'd say, be counter
productive for a meeting. The extra control with BBB creates quite a
'bus factor': there must be someone who can be the host, and that role
needs knowledge of all the settings, the password and indeed a reliable
connection - BBB is not forgiving to network failures!
Since SPDX meetings are open to all, the control isn't as desirable.
Jitsi's flexibility is really useful in ad-hoc situations: if the Legal
Team wanted an impromptu meeting, say, that could be done without any
scheduling or administration. Also, by default everyone has more control
with Jitsi; for example, if my microphone was noisy you could mute me
without disturbing the chairman.
All of them suffer client side scaling issues because of webRTC (thisSince our meetings are open, would it need E2E encryption? That feature
is optional in Jitsi as it happens.
I hope I've been able to explain better what I meant by Jitsi being more
flexible. As always I shall keep you in the loop regarding the managed
hosting that I've requested!
