[jitsi-dev] Possible to do Live stream to 200 viewers without youtube?


#1

Is it possible to use Jitsi to host one to 200 live event?
Only one or two presenters would have webcam and stream to all audience
(>200). That's like a private version of Facebook live. We can't use
YouTube to broadcast live because that's public.

I think Jitsi meet is SFU, if I modify some settings or code to make the
audience all muted, would it support 500 viewers?

Thanks.

I think if you had only 2 video streams going in and 200 going out, that
should be doable. That's about 500Mb/s through the box which we've tested
before (not a scenario like this one exactly, but that much traffic), so I
do think it's worth a try. 500 though, I don't think is gonna happen right
now.

FWIW you can make a youtube stream private, so maybe something to consider
there as well.

Right now it is not possible for 200 participants to join a conference, but it is something that we might have in the future.

Youtube streams can be made private to an organization. Another option is to modify Jibri to stream RTMP not to youtube but somewhere else (the change is trivial).

Thanks for the replies.
So I think you mean that's possible as long as I have the best config
machine and best network.

One of our scenarios is to stream in our own platform for branding and add
some custom functions related to education. So can't do youtube.
As a side question is that I have to use another open source project or
build my own solution with CDN to support live streaming to thousands of
audiences?
