[jitsi-users] jitsi-videobridge vs direct conference


#1

Hi, I wonder what is the main difference between using jitsi-videobridge and creating conference using direct connections between users. For example, if I want to create conference for 5 people, I can just invite them to conference even without videobridge. I know that then my audio and video stream is transferred to everyone (to 4 recipients). If I use videobridge it is transferred just once to server. But when it comes to incomming traffic, there is no differenece (in bandwith?)? I know that the traffic source is then my videobridge server, but how is it with number of bytes received? Is this just a sum of 5 (or four?) streams? What if some participants have slower connections? In direct conference I would just had "worse" pictures just from them, and good from others. And how would it be with videobridge? And Is it possible to use a few videobridges for one openfire (in my case) server? Will it balance traffic somehow?

You also forward everything between the other participants.

?? really?? so how could i assess real bandwith used for connections? I know it depends on many curcumstances, but let's assume that direct video stream for 1-1 connection is 512k. (both video and audio)
