[jitsi-dev] Jitsi Videobridge


#1

Hi,

I hope I've come through to the right people to ask a few questions.

We are using the FrozenMountain IceLink libraries to WebRTC enable our .NET C# applications for conference use in the classroom. On a P2P level this can only handle around 5 people and are looking to implement Multi Point.

We will have 30+ participants at any given time in a single classroom session.

- Can the Jitsi Videobridge handle this amount of participants in the one session?

- In this scenario, would the Videobridge be cheaper to run bandwidth wise than an MCU Mixer? I've been told it wouldn't but I think it should?

- Are we able to connect to the Videobridge via WebSockets from our C# application? If so, are there any examples you may know of? If not, is there anything we can use to connect via C#?

I would appreciate any answers and advise here as my knowledge is quite limited on the Server side of things and from what I've read, the Jitsi Videobridge seems like it could be our solution to our Education solution hopefully.

I understand that we trying to use WebRTC not for how it was intended but also trying to break new ground here as well.

Thanks for taking the time to read this email and if I didn't explain things very well (most likely) please let me know.

I eagerly await your response.

Kind regards,

Hi,

Hi,

I hope I’ve come through to the right people to ask a few questions.

We are using the FrozenMountain IceLink libraries to WebRTC enable our .NET
C# applications for conference use in the classroom. On a P2P level this can
only handle around 5 people and are looking to implement Multi Point.

We will have 30+ participants at any given time in a single classroom
session.

- Can the Jitsi Videobridge handle this amount of participants in
the one session?

Yes, especially helpful can be last N, where you see last N active
speakers, where N is configured.

- In this scenario, would the Videobridge be cheaper to run
bandwidth wise than an MCU Mixer? I’ve been told it wouldn’t but I think it
should?

Nope bandwidth for the videobridge will be way different than MCU, as
it is router not mixer. Mixer mixes streams and produce new ones, so
it takes less bandwidth. But MCU requires a very powerful equipment or
cluster of such to handle 30 person conference.

- Are we able to connect to the Videobridge via WebSockets from our
C# application? If so, are there any examples you may know of? If not, is
there anything we can use to connect via C#?

Jitsi meet currently uses bosh to connect to the prosody server, if that helps.
