Android SDK maximum number of users supported on free server

Hello , I am using android SDK of jitsi meet and I am using the jitsi server . I havent setup any custom server of my own . I would like to know if I would be able to host a meeting of 500 people on this . Most would be audio and only 15-20 people would be with video .
Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, you should be able to host that many people on the current version running on meet.jit.si.

Can it go to 1500 participants without suffering ?

No, 500 is the current max in a single meeting.

And how many people can turn on their video without suffering issues . This is the Android SDK and ReactJS SDK and not the website meet.jit.si but using their server .

What is this?

Meet.jit.si you can use with IframeAPI and there are terms and conditions for that Terms & Conditions | meet.jit.si Terms of Service which you need to check.
If that doesn’t work for you, consider using jaas.8x8.vc.
We had been working on 500 participants in a meeting and we are testing with 300 video senders there.

Is there some way , I can create a meeting of 1500+ participants in Jitsi , most would just be audio listeners , only 5-10 would be screensharing and video senders . Also , if its possible , what would be the cost associated ?

The maximum number of people you can have a single meeting is currently 500. You can of course host multiple meetings, but each room can accommodate up to 500 participants. I suggest checking out the team at https://jaas.8x8.vc to assist you with your requirement.

If I host my own server , can I still have just 500 maximum participants ?

Yes, you need to fine-tune things and testing it and that is absolutely possible. All the code is there, we had tried to enable as much as possible by default …

Thanks for the reply . Is there some documentation or code which gives me the instructions for jitsii to support 1000+ participants on my custom server and the approximate cost I would incur

We had worked recently on improvements dealing with 500 participants. There are no such docs and we haven’t tested 1000 participants in a conference, the max we had targeted is 500.
If you mean 1000 and more concurrent participants distributed in many conferences on a deployment you can take a look at Video Tutorials · Jitsi Meet Handbook and the video about scaling, even though videos are old many aspects of those are still valid.

Hi @damencho
I had just test the max participants of one meeting,and when the num comes to 120, the meeting break down. it dosen’t goes to 500 participants.

I see the log of jvb.log and it show this info:

So what is the problem with my server? cpu ? bandwith or memory? I have no idea

I test this with 200 real peoples, and how can I test the num without real people?Is there a way?

Have you monitored the signalling server? What was the prosody process cpu usage?
To test it you need a selenium grid with many nodes
