VUC592: Jitsi Meet, Jitsi Video Bridge

Event: Friday May 6th, 2016 at 12 Noon EDT, 5PM UK

simulJitsi has announced news of support for simulcast and group viewing of Youtube videos.

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 as usual.
