Can I use Jitsi for a video platform I'm working on? (description below)


#1

Hi all,

I’m working on setting up a platform where certain users can video chat with certain other users on a one-on-one basis. It also has to have an option to share screens. In special cases there must be an option to do a video chat where 5 people can see the video of the user that is giving a seminar for them.

I am the founder of this platform, I’m not working on it as a programmer.

Can Jitsi fulfill the above-mentioned mentioned functions?

Thanks in advance,
Aron

Generally speaking, the Jitsi Meet family of products can be used to fulfill your requirements:
(1) “certain users can video chat with certain other users on a one-on-one basis” - The enforcement of “certain users” aside, Jitsi Meet allows for 1-on-1 video meetings.
(2) “have an option to share screens” - Jitsi Meet supports desktop streaming (i.e. view only) and sharing (i.e. remote control).
(3) “do a video chat where 5 people can see the video of the user that is giving a seminar for them” - Jitsi Meet enables multiparty video meetings so one user may stream their video or desktop stream and others may audio and video mute to just listen to and observe the presenter.
