Hi to all the developers out there,
(excuse my Englisch - I am German)
After all that work you have done and all the hours spent on the project
istn't it time to explain it to those that finally would use it?
* You need a foundation of a proper software. Hopefully done, well:
Thank you to all of you spending your time to develop something
urgently needed for the common weal!
* For organisations where the implementation of such services and
software is done centralized by admins you also will have already
enough information adequate to their knowledge. For admins it is
routine to set up a server.
* Wherever the use of jitsi-application is driven by end-users that
are not geeks you unfortunatelly have little.
Imagine a typical Skype user. In windows he runs something like a
setup.exe "and follows the instructions". Such user is probably not
aware that servers might be involved in his final skype-session.
Maybe he does not even know what a server is.
Isn't it also in your interest to let explode reputation and
popularity when an enduser-oriented magazin says: "...similar to
Skype but keeping your privacy and supporting free software,
independent from big data collectors...just install, create your
account, open session, invite friends to video call...installation
in 5 Minutes straight-forward...installation with or with or central
I am such an enduser - just with a bigger capacity to endure and to
struggle through 45%-documentation for installation, repeat
installations a couple of times, inviting friends to test-sessions that
have also a certain suffering ability. As this type of user here my
1. Do I need somewhere a server to have video-calls with whom-ever?
2. If not, which of your modules is the right one for server-less
video-call sessions with two or more participants?
3. If so: Are there free servers available where I can have an account
(that can be created as easy and cheap as an e-mail account)
suitable for jits-sessions. If so: Where?
4. If not: Can I set a check during my installation that my computer
during a session might serve as a server? What are the hardware
requirements for such a server installation (of course all needed
software is expected to be included in your installation package,
therefore there are no software requierements at all)
5. When finally opening a session how can be negociated between all
participants which of them will be the server if both are capable to
be a server?
Thanks a lot, greetings
