[jitsi-users] Hello world and a few questions


#1

Hi!

Hey Javier,

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?

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.

Regards,
Boris

Thanks for your answer Boris!

OK, I understand it comes right out of the box. but something is
missing in my setup or failing, because if I open 2 tabs I don't get
any video or audio on the other side.

I see the other user gets in, I can chat; but no audio or video.

Maybe it's a firewall problem? I'm testing this a very tight firewall
right now (only 22, 80 and https open). I tried opening the 5347 port,
but still nothing.

Maybe I'm missing another port? or range?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

The jvb needs to be on a public address and you need to open ports udp
10000-20000. If its using natted address there is a setup you need to
do, which is described here:
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-videobridge/blob/master/doc/tcp.md#orgjitsivideobridgenat_harvester_local_address,
you need to put there its private ip and its public one and again
ports(10k-20k) need to be forwarded.
