Implementation of JITSI meet in react app


I’m trying to add jitsi meet in my react app. I can see there are 2 type of API’s

which one I should use?

My requirement is simple, I need to use jitsi in my react app by adding a conference video feature by customization. I would have a separate jitsi streaming server, and use that in my react app for streaming.

Please let me know.

Thank you.

As the repository description goes, lib-jitsi-meet is “A low-level JS video API that allows adding a completely custom video experience to web apps.”
If you use lib-jitsi-meet, you will have to build your own UI (which is good if you have a custom requirement but is not a light undertaking)

while if you don’t have Custom UI requirement, you can use External API. External API uses Jitsi’s current UI and can be embedded in your app using iframe. (You can use or your own deployment)


Thank you. :slightly_smiling_face:
