How can I connect to other Jitsi servers with my PC?

8x8 is hosting the default servers, and through jitsi.org you can connect to these.

But how can I connect to other Jitsi servers with my PC?

What do you exactly mean?

I thought my question was pretty clear. I will try to make it clearer.

8x8 has computers that run the Jitsi-server-software. 8x8 also provides us with three different clients: Jitsi-browser-client, Jitsi-android-app-client and Jitsi-ios-app-client.

When I use the browser-client to create a meeting, this browser-client must use the default Jitsi-servers that 8x8 provides.

Now there are ways to run Jitsi-server-software on your own (or rented) computers. This means that there are third party Jitsi-servers running out there.

How can I connect to these third party Jitsi-servers and use those servers to run my meetings, instead of using 8x8’s servers?

Where can I download a Jitsi-PC-client so that I can choose which Jitsi-servers I want to use?

Does this clarify my question?

Wit browser use the link of your deployment. You can download https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron and use it on your desktop, there is a setting to set a server address. Mobile apps (Jitsi Meet) also there is a setting about the server or just paste the whole link with https as room name.

Instead of putting in https://meet.jit.si, put in the URL of the server to which you want to connect.
