[jitsi-users] Jitsi, XMPP and a complete conferencing solution with Web interface


#1

Greetings to all,

I've started using Jitsi a couple of months ago, currently using it as a
private solution to talk to my family and friends, all spread to different
countries around the globe.
I find it the best opensource solution so far, implementing great features
that a "commercial" software would envy.

My setup is as simple as this:
-an XMPP server running in a raspberry Pi, directly connected with my DSL
router.
The server is the Openfire(currently running 3.9.3 version)

-all the friends and family are running the Jitsi(still running the 2.4
version due to some problems facing with the latest version when starting
Video conference).

-the Jitsi videobridge is also running in the "server"

What I'd like to do is have a Web conferencing , like the Jitsi Meet, but
with the people being able to login using their XMPP/JID credentials.
I need this option because I am traveling very often and most of the times,
do not carry my laptop with me. So, joining through a hotel PC with Chrome
or Mozilla would be great.

I've also tried the Jappix for Openfire, I get to Chat with the other Jitsi
Communicator users but cannot use video.
Is there a known solution/project already where I could use?

I 've been searching for weeks now but with no result.

Thank you all
Evangelos

Jitsi Meet supports this, just disable the anonymous domain in the prosody configuration and participants will be asked to authenticate.

Hi Boris,

do you have a walk-around for openfire also?
I am using the openfire because it has a web interface also and looks
easier to administrate.

Can I use the Jitsi Meet and disable the anonymous domain in openfire?

FYI,there is a plugin for Openfire called Jitsi Videobridge but no longer
supported. There is now the "ofmeet" but is still in beta with many
problems.

Best regards,
Evangelos

I think so, but you will have to setup Jitsi Meet with Openfire first, which will require some manual changes to the configuration.

Good morning Boris and thanks for your help.

I am planning to test the Prosody server today, just found out that there
is actually a simple web interface so I'll give it a shot.

Can you please provide me with a couple of links on how to correctly setup
the jitsi video bridge and the meet also?
There are many how-to's on the net, but I am not sure which one should I
follow.

Thanks
Evangelos

If you have a debian-based system, you should use the quick install guide[1].

Otherwise, you will have to do things manually[2]

Hi Boris,

I've made a fresh Ubuntu install on an old laptop. Followed step 1 and it
worked without any problems.

The question is, how can I login into the Jitsi Meet using the XMPP
accounts of prosody? I really cannot find the way on how to connect the
Jitsi Meet with the Prosody accounts.

Best regards
Evangelos

Hello,

I might be missing something, but I think changing the 'authentication' for the prosody VirtualHost should be enough.

Boris
