The open-source video conferencing platform of choice

5 last year

Comments: 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

Quick, easy, free

5 7 months ago

Comments: Jitsi is an easy to use, free and good working software for video conferences, that offers a good amount of features and is constantly developed.

Pros:

I like, that Jitsi is open-source and under constant development. The interface has been renewed some time ago and it now looks good on desktop Pcs as well as on mobile devices. The video quality is also good. You can now also use polls to have realtime votes. Jitsi offers a lot of features and is also able to run big conferences now. What I like as well is, that anyone can use it for free and easily invite other participants by just sending a link.

Cons:

Jitsi has some trouble working on older computers. This is why the system that is used should be pretty new. Also breakout-rooms are not integrated yet. The developers say, that it will be implemented soon.

Comments: My overall experience has been quite satisfying and good and I always found this app upto mark in the area of virtual meeting world.

Pros:

Safety features and easy access are most liked features as i don't even require to login to join a meeting and I simply join by joining link and private password.

Cons:

I didn't found any lacunae in this app as its safe, secure and end to end encrypted security feature app which also protects privacy of people and professions.

Conference calling

3 last year

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

High-quality conferencing tool - Jitsi

5 3 months ago

Comments: I really enjoy Jitsi meet, because it is available for free with HD quality Audio, Video, Screen Sharing and chat. For development purposes, it facilitates API to integrate Jitsi with your own product.

Pros:

While conferencing with colleges, if the meeting moderator left from the meeting, it automatically assigns anyone to a moderator. It will not end the meeting if the moderator left from the meeting. Another impressive feature is that you can record entire conference or meeting sessions. Along with screen sharing, private chat while conferencing and live chat, it provides high-quality audio and video streaming.

Cons:

Of all the features, only they do not support remote access control for the web version, but that is not a major problem. I understand that providing remote access control for the web is not feasible when considering security.
