[jitsi-users] Call between Jtisi client and jitsi meet/videobridge


#1

Hi,

Just one small question.
Is it possible to make a video call between the Jitsi client using the
XMPP service provided by jitsi and a browser using webrtc via
https://meet.jit.si/

Thanks in advance,
Sam

No, it isn't. There is a feature request[0] for this, but it would require quite a lot of work and is not on our roadmap.

Regards,
Boris

hi all,

I installed a Jitsi meet 1.0.868-1 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. when i test it, i found the video resolution of "Me" window is 640*360, but 320*180 for the others. does that mean the video bridge receives a 640*360 stream, then compress it to 320*180 and broadcast it to the others? how can i configure it not to compress, but just forward streams. does compress take much cpu utilization? and reduce user experience. another, how can i make the front-end js to capture a high resolution video stream such as 720p?

thanks.

No, with simulcast the clients send multiple streams. The bridge chooses which stream to forward. In Jitsi Meet this is the highest quality stream for the participant you see on the big video, and the lowest quality (usually 180p) for everyone else.

Add "resolution: '720'" to config.js.
