I've read about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jitsi looking for Skype
alternatives. The Wiki article speaks about "Jitsi" as a "voice (VoIP),
videoconferencing and instant messaging application".
Going on reading on https://jitsi.org/ confusion starts: the start page
introduces something called "Jitsi Videobridge" and something called
"Jitsi Meet". "Okay, maybe they have additional apps next to the "Jitsi"
I've read about on Wikipedia" I thought. But reading
https://jitsi.org/what-is-jitsi/ the Wikipedia article must be extremely
outdated: "Jitsi is a set of open-source projects [...] At the heart of
Jitsi are Jitsi Videobridge and Jitsi Meet".
"Okay, so maybe what is formerly called "Jitsi" is now "Jitsi meet"" I
thought and went on with the link "Try it out and download it for free."
which leads me to https://meet.jit.si/ - trying Jitsi Meet this is
obviously a web app and beside the problem that there is nothing
clickable to download something (using Firefox with NoScript but all
Scripts enabled): why should I (as end-user) download something for a
Coming back to https://jitsi.org/what-is-jitsi/ I went on reading
https://jitsi.org/projects/: hello "jibri", "jicofo", "jigasi", "ice4j",
"libjitsi", ...wait, "Jitsi Desktop" sounds for what I was originally
looking for (you remember: a videoconferencing and instant messaging
application). Invited by "Jitsi Desktop" field/link my next station was
https://desktop.jitsi.org/ followed by "Download Jitsi":
"Here, you can download Jitsi Desktop, Jitsi Meet and Jitsi Videobridge."
...again 3 different products and I have still no idea what I exactly
should use to replace Skype.
Reading https://desktop.jitsi.org/Main/About and
https://desktop.jitsi.org/Documentation/FAQ I couldn't find any
information telling me the difference between Jitsi Desktop, Jitsi Meet
and Jitsi Videobridge.
So hello mailing list!
I hope you could explain me what I couldn't find reading your (really
What can I do with Jitsi Desktop compared with Jitsi Meet and Jitsi
Videobridge? I mean: when should I use Jitsi Desktop and and when
Meet/Videobridge (and when not)?
Thx a lot for your patience
