Configuring APIs for video brige

we usually had defined the following config:

JVB_OPTS="–apis=rest,xmpp "

but now we realized that maybe some of the updates changed this to:


Could someone explain what is defining rest, or rest,xmpp good for?
Thank you very much in advance.

The JVB supports a REST API or an XMPP based one. That option allows you to select which one you want to expose.

Hi @saghul ,

thank you very much for your quick reply. Is there a preferable option to expose or do they both offer the same functionality?

They offer the same functionality.

If you are using the whole Jitsi Meet stack, you’ll be using XMPP. If you want to build your own, but use the JVB as your SFU you probably want REST.
