About Jitsi Meet

Jitsi Meet is an open-source video conferencing solution that helps businesses of all sizes create virtual rooms to conduct meetings remotely. Presenters can mute participants, send private messages, remove specific individuals and record sessions. 

Jitsi Meet's screen sharing functionality allows team members to share external applications with coworkers, facilitating quick collaboration. Administrators can set up password-protected virtual rooms and lock rooms to restrict late attendees from joining sessions. The telephony module enables team members to invite participants and join meetings via audio phone calls. Additionally, the picture-in-picture (PIP) mode lets team members use multiple applications simultaneously.

Great Free Video Conferencing Solution

Jitsi allows my team to work from home and successfully communicate. We use it for meetings, one-on-ones, brainstormings, updates, and general communications. Also, I've started to use this software much more often to chat with my family and friends amid pandemic.

Pros

Jitsi Meet is a fully secure, scalable, easy to use, customizable and feature-rich solution, perfect choice for remote everyday use.

Cons

I have not come up against any weaknesses yet. The one thing I can remember, once I've noted an audio delay during the meeting.

The best open source for online conference

The experience with Jitsi is overall fantastic. Like I mentioned, it's a little difficult to set it up the first time if you are installing it in your server. But, anyway, there's a docker-compose version (with a very good documentation on their github repository) that takes care of almost everything you need in order to get the software working.

Pros

As a user, the best part about Jitsi is that it doesn't need for people you invite to a conference to register anywhere. You only need to provide them the link to click and Voila! they're in the conference! The audio and video quality is awesome! It also has a feature that makes peer to peer conference in case there are only two people in the conference. It automagically switches to conference mode the moment a third participant joins the conference.

Cons

A con about Jitsi is that, if you're setting it up in your server, there aren't very detailed guides on how to set up each one of the components that it needs to work (although they aren't part of jitsi itself, but would be desirable to have a guide for installing and setting up each component). Also, if you download and want to modify the source, there isn't a very detailed step-by-step that tells you how to do it for each one of the components (there is the mobile app and the web application).

Reasons for Choosing Jitsi Meet

The main reason was the interface. Although Openmeetings has better guides to install and has already lots of features, the interface for a first time user is confusing because there's a lot of floating panels on the interface. Those are great, but not for a first encounter. Second important reason is that openmeetings requires each user to create an account. There's no way natively to provide a url for the conference to somebody else and let them join the conference.

Great phone solution for small companies working remotely.

Pros

The system in convenient for companies that have employees based remotely. You can easily access calls and voicemails from your laptop or smartphone.

Cons

Sometimes the connection isn't great. There's also an audio delay once in awhile, usually this is resolved by restarting the system.

The only VC that respects its users security.

Excellent, easy to use.

Pros

The only solution on the market that is : - Freely and independently auditable for highest security standards (open source) - Server can be installed on premises if cloud does not offer enough privacy - Perfecly works on Linux/Mac/Win/Android/IOS - Do no require you to register/login or send you personal data before using the service. (Does not track you) Interesting features: - Can focus clients on the users that speaks (voice detection on microphone). - Since it can be installed on premises, it's possible to have very low latency. Additionally, it's totally free and open source. Best value in 2020.

Cons

- Some problems with Firefox when presenter, but works with Chrome. FF ok if just client. - Not possible to resize webcam incrustation when sharing screen. (Just on or off).

Reasons for Choosing Jitsi Meet

- Better security - Option to run it internally for better privacy and lower latency. - Independantly auditable usually provides much better security, both client & server. (Open Source)

Good

I don't see what sets Jitsi apart from its competitors, but it has all the functions you want in a meeting app.

Pros

Does the job - sometimes have connection problems, but I use Jitsi integrated in third-party app so I do not know which app causes the connection problems. It has all the basic functionality - muting, sharing meeting link, screensharing, easy to use mobile app, ...

Cons

I would like the functionality to share the full screen instead of only individual windows. I assume this will be implemented some day.
