Dynamic switching between mesh and sfu

Hi, I have a user case where there could be a large number of attendees. I want to support at least 10-25, but I could end up wanting 100. In this use case, there will be a maximum of 2 people using video simultaneously (say 10% of the time) and one person using video (30% of the time) and the rest of the time (60%) one person using audio (or very low resolution - thumbnail video). Ideally to save operational bandwidth costs, I would like to go “mesh only” and dynamically switching to SFU only if critical. I hope that 90% of the time, we will be in mesh only mode with upto 25 kids. Is this feasible? Does meet allow for dynamic switching?

I see there was a question about this [jitsi-dev] Jitsi Meet in Mesh for <=2-3 peers

But the link to the mailing list is not reachable and the answer not very clear.


it was 5 years ago and this ship has sailed, Jitsi meet is now SFU when going over 2 users.

What if there are only 2 users for audio and video but many others attending?

Is there a way to adjust the 2 user limit and maybe set it to 5?

Does my “constrained” use case support a pure mesh play for say upto 10 users?

Sorry I have no other answer.
