I have been facing issues using Jisti meet on DigitalOcean when a large number of people, usually more than 4, attempt to video conference. Most of my employees are from India and the Philippines who do not sometimes have very high broadband capabilities. Their video freezes and sometimes cuts off completely making it very tedious to have a proper conversation.
It is my understanding that Jisti does not “stitch” together videos streams into one video which is then sent to everyone, which would mean that each person is downloading multiple video streams from everyone else. In a limited bandwidth situation this can cause a problem. What I attempted, is to reduce the maximum video resolution down to 240px. It did reduce the problem allowing 5 people to comfortably converse but not more.
Is there a way that i can force Jitsi to “stitch” the video streams into one video stream on the server side, so as to reduce the load on individual bandwidth?
