[jitsi-users] Jitsi-Videobridge and used ports


#1

Hi,

As far as I understand, Jitsi-Videobridge allocates 2 ports (RTP/RTCP) per conference participant.
If it is a correct understanding, I'm wondering if it is possible to use/configure Jitsi-Videobridge to use the same ports for all participants of a given conference? In principle, Jitsi could distinguish payload from different participants by analyzing the source address/port of incoming packets and/or ssrc, right? Or am I missing something?

Is something like this already supported by Jitsi? If not, how difficult would it be to implement it?

Thanks,
Leo

Hello, Leo. Neither Jitsi, nor Jitsi Videobridge supports the port
allocation strategy that you describe at this time. I'm unaware of
current plans to add such support.

Hello Lyubomir,

Thanks for your answer. If I'd consider implementing such a feature myself (and contributing it), do you have any idea where in the source code I should start looking at? Any rough idea about a required effort? Does it seem to be a relatively small change or would it need to touch/introduce a lot of code?

Thanks,
Leo
