[jitsi-users] Hello world and a few questions


#1

Hi,

I found jitsi about 1 week ago and it was like mana from heaven :), it's
just the tool I've been looking for for the past year.

I'm the main developer of a school's webrtc software and we need to handle
up to 500 simultaneous connections now on a weekly basis -1 publisher, 499
receivers, and in some moments 2 publishers-, and more and more. I "hacked"
tokbox to get 1200 streams receiving info this Saturday, by making 1
publisher go to 3 different sessions at the same time, but I don't think I
can keep doing that for a long time.

I'm trying to move away from the current webrtc solution (opentok), and
with some help from other devs I contacted, and a lot of googling, I found
jitsi and my jaw dropped....

The solution we have also uses heavily the signaling system to do a live
chat, send url's to files, block/remove users and any kind of
signal-related thing.

I think that Jitsi is just the right tool for us (that's why my jaw
dropped, because it has
everything that I was looking for!).

Today I did a jiti meet install, assuming it was just going to work :), but
I discovered I also need the jitsi bridge installed, right?

I'm a full stack developer and I can do all the work, but I'm lost here on
what I need to setup.
I think I should be able to pull off the setup, but I'd really appreciate
some guidance on this first steps.
My next step should be to install jitsi bridge, and then connect my meet
install with the bridge? Do I need something else?

Thanks a lot in advance!
Javier

If you are installing the jitsi-meet debian package as explained on in the quick-install doc[0] it will automatically pull in jitsi-videobridge as a dependency. You only need to play with the configuration ff you require a more complex setup with e.g. jitsi-videobridge running on a separate machine.

Boris
