[jitsi-dev] jitmeet feature request - file sharing


#1

Hi,

Not sure if this should go here on the list. I looked at the open issues on
github and didn't see anything regarding file sharing in jitmeet, so here
goes.

It would be great if jitmeet participants had a a way to share files
securely during a meeting, either peer to peer or relyaing through jvb.

Couldn't RTCDataChannel be used for this? I recall seeing a few FOSS
projects that enabled file sharing through WebRTC, so I presume it
shouldn't be too difficult to incorporate into jitmeet.
Unless I'm missing something, of course.

What do you all think?

Cheers,

Peter

This is a great feature to add. Since prosody is already in use, i wonder
what it would take to have it send files.

On an unrelated note, how can you screen share with a chrome extension? It
works well on meet.jit.si since you can select what you want to share but
on your own install, I'm only able to use webrtc and share everything.

And a way for the file to be part of the meeting notes / recording.

If it's an appropriate format, we could view and even edit. Ex.:
http://webodf.org/

Drawing / annotations on the document would be sweet as well.

Best regards,

M :slight_smile:

This would probably make more sense as a web-based service. Implementing it
in the videobridge wouldn't offer any significant advantage. At least I
don't see any. Yet it would require the bridge to offer storage
capabilities so everyone can accept the reception of a file or so that late
arrivals can also get it.

Integrating a filesharing service would probably make more sense.

To screen share with the jitsi chrome extension, just install it, and then
edit its manifest file to allow connections from your own domain.
That's it.l

This is a great feature to add. Since prosody is already in use, i wonder
what it would take to have it send files.

On an unrelated note, how can you screen share with a chrome extension? It
works well on meet.jit.si since you can select what you want to share but
on your own install, I'm only able to use webrtc and share everything.

Hi Peter,

To screen share with the jitsi chrome extension, just install it, and

then edit its manifest file to allow connections from your own domain.

Does this mean everyone I want to screen share with would need to first
have the Jitsi plug-in and then edit their local manifest file?

That's it.l

Once the screen is shared it is just a simple video stream so no.
Everyone would be seeing it without any need of an extension.
