[jitsi-users] Jitsi-videobridge + Prosody


#1

Hello all,

I'm having a hard time finding info on how to install/configure/run
Jitsi-videobridge
with Prosody.
I want to be able to do a one to many broadcasts using Webrtc, Jitsi
videobridge and Prosody. (clients are iOS/Android devices)
Signalling will go through the Prosody XMPP server and then relay the media
with Webrtc through Jitsi-videobridge.

Does this approach sound about right?
Should I add additional components to achieve the broadcast?

Viewing the Prosody start up log I saw:
Incoming Jabber component connection jitsi videobridge.mydomain.com:component

info External component successfully authenticated,
so I Think I got Prosody and the videobridge running together successfully
but i'm confused on how to proceed.

I read this article: https://2013.jres.org/archives/169/paper169_article.pdf
which describes a basic scheme on how it should work, so as I understand,
now i need to allocate a channel for the conference (broadcast in my case).
How do i do that?

Also i'm a bit confused on the role of the focus user.
Should I add an additional component to the mix for the focus user or is
the broadcaster just considered the focus user .

One more General question: Is Jitsi videobridge scalable in production use
with many users doing broadcasts ?

Thank you

Hi,

You can find detailed instructions on how to configure Jitsi Videobridge with Prosody here:

https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md

Our production service is hosted here https://meet.jit.si/. You can test drive it and decide if it suits your needs.

Note that we don’t currently have iOS/Android clients, so you’ll have to develop that yourself /o\

Kind regards,
George

As I understand it, otalk uses webRTC and jitsi-videobridge as well.
So if you want a starting point for an iOS app, these might help:

https://github.com/otalk/iOS-demo
https://github.com/otalk/TLKWebRTC
https://github.com/otalk/webrtc-ios

Not sure on Android. Since it's possible to run Chrome and Opera on
there, it might simply be supported via the browser.
