I’ve been playing around with Jitsi Meet recently and I really love it. It’s so much quicker and easier for people to join video conferences than with the native Jitsi desktop software (doesn’t require any accounts or special software, just works). I’m looking into running a Jitsi Meet server for some very privacy and security conscious video conferences (including Freedom of the Press Foundation board meetings with Edward Snowden attending), so that we can finally stop relying on Google Hangouts.
The readme says discuss feature requests on the this list before opening issues on GitHub. I would like to be able to configure my Jitsi Meet server to not make any 3rd party requests at all. Right now, when you load a Jitsi Meet website it makes requests to: api.callstats.io, www.gravatar.com, and www.google-analytics.com.
Would you be willing to implement these minor privacy code changes, or accept a pull request with them?
Finally, it would be amazing if Jitsi Meet could offer verifiable end-to-end encryption with ZRTP. I know this is obviously a much bigger and longer-term task. Are you currently looking into it or working on it? It looks like others are working on a ZRTP/WebRTC spec: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-johnston-rtcweb-zrtp-00
