Is it difficult to modify jitsi source code (jicofo?) in order to experiment with other algorithms to scale the system (more or less videobrigges)?


I’m currently doing my master thesis and we are thinking of doing some research in auto-scaling systems.

Should it be really difficult to understand jitsi source code and try to modify it to experiment with other algorithms to to do better/worse (in terms of QoE)?

I’m new in this research area so sorry for my ignorance.


No really you can checkout the code at GitHub - jitsi/jicofo: JItsi COnference FOcus is a server side focus component used in Jitsi Meet conferences.
and just doing mvn install should produce a zip file where you can use that to replace /usr/share/jicofo on a environment where you have installed everything from the debian packages, and this way run with your code.
