So what is Jitsi Videobridge?
Jitsi Videobridge is a WebRTC compatible Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU) that allows for multiuser video communication. Unlike expensive dedicated hardware videobridges, Jitsi Videobridge does not mix the video channels into a composite video stream. It only relays the received video flows to all call participants. This makes Jitsi extremely scalable and, while it does need to run on a server with good network bandwidth, CPU horsepower is not critical for performance.
We will be using JVB to produce this week’s VUC session, visible at http://live.vuc.me as usual.
