About Jitsi

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.

The open-source video conferencing platform of choice

We have been using Jitsi to conduct meetings and virtual classes for our students. Overall, we are very satisfied with the user experience. I am constantly delighted to see new features being added to the platform (e.g. virtual backgrounds), and the team even upgraded their user interface.

Pros

Jitsi is free and open source and that is the biggest Pro that I can think of. However, this does not mean that it has a subpar feature set. We have been using it consistently for conducting virtual meetings across the University since the early days of the pandemic and here are a few pros that I can highlight: - It is very user friendly, even non-techies can figure it out without much training - Jitsi integrates well with Moodle (our LMS of choice) and this allows Faculty to host virtual classrooms right from their course page - The DropBox integration allows users to record their meetings and share the recordings easily with others

Cons

Although it is difficult to fault an outstanding project like Jitsi, there are a few areas that still need to be polished up: - At certain times users join a meeting using the supplied link only to find that they are alone (although others using the same link are in the meeting room). This is usually fixed by leaving and rejoining the meeting - Jitsi often struggles with poor connectivity and this matters in not-so-well-developed settings like where some of our students stay

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

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.

Conference calling

Pros

I have been using this software for my online classes. It allows you to connect with several people one at a time. It also has options to share messages with the participants.

Cons

One of the major lacking in jitsi is that it crashes alot and sometimes it does not connect you in the meeting. It does not allow screen sharing options and also do not allow you to share documents. There are better options available in market that have better features in terms of video conferencing an

Virtual meetings tool

In general, Jitsi is a great option to have virtual meetings or webinars and avoiding having to install or having to do all the hassle from most of the rest of the tools which do the same.

Pros

I really like the fact that this tool is really easy to use, you just need to access the website, chose what you need, and as easy as that you can create a room to have a virtual meeting with co-workers, prospects, or even with your family. This is a great tool when chosing from other options, and specially because time is important for me and my clients.

Cons

I don't like the fact that I need to write a name for the room meeting, I think is a good idea but it can be created automatically, and not having to write something that might sound weird to the participants at the meeting.

Reasons for Switching to Jitsi

Because I needed a user friendly option to have virtual meetings with my prospects, with Jitsy I dont need to do a lot to have a great experience and this allows me to save time and be in contact with my clients.

Jitsi Meet

Las ventajas fueron que durante todos los 2 semestres de cursado nos ayudo a toda la facultad a llevar a cabo el cursado de clases.

Pros

Me gusta su facilidad de uso y su capacidad de ser portable en app móvil. capturar pantalla y poner videos de youtube con solo el link

Cons

los videos en youtube no se reproducen desde el celular y para loguearse necesitas gravar cuando podría ser mas fácil solo con google.

Reasons for Switching to Jitsi

por que es mas cómodo y podes poner videos de youtube al compartir por link
