[jitsi-users] Just wondering why


#1

Hello. From what I have seen Jitsi is very complicated. There so many
version (Jitsi Videobridge, Jitsi Meet, Jicofo and Jigasi)... Why can't you
make something like skype with chat. video and audio but decentralized,
opensource and with encryption like OTR and OMEMO and with option to use
own jabber account or create a new one?

You mean Jitsi Desktop?

from your description you need "Jitsi Desktop" as standalone
installation and register there with your XMPP account.

Jitsi Desktop contains end-to-end OTR encryption for text chats and
supports ZRTP end-to-end encryption for Audio/Video (if both buddies
used Jitsi Desktop)

You can download the installation files here:
stable builds:
Windows:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/windows/jitsi-latest-x86.exe
Mac:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/macosx/jitsi-latest.dmg
Debian:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/debian/

Nightly builds (latest):
Windows:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/windows/jitsi-2.11-nightly.latest-x86.exe
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/windows/jitsi-2.11-nightly.latest-x64.exe

Mac:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/macosx/jitsi-2.11-nightly.latest.dmg

Debian:
https://download.jitsi.org/unstable/jitsi_2.11.5601-1_i386.deb
https://download.jitsi.org/unstable/jitsi_2.11.5601-1_amd64.deb

hope that helps
(jitsi-meet and Co are using WebRTC over browser incl. installation of
own server etc)

I think Alex Petrov was indirectly pointing to the problem that
jitsi.org is a quite confusing bunch of projects for end (!) users
interested in "I've heard ot something called jitsi".

jitsi.org should start with just 2 categories:

1. "Jitsi projects for end users"
2. "Jitsi projects for developers"

1. could be divided in:

1.1 What is and how to _use_ "Jitsi Desktop"
1.2 What is and how to _use_ "Jitsi Meet"

2. could be divided in:

2.1 Project to deploy Jitsi project X
2.2 Project to deploy Jitsi project Y
2.3 Project to deploy Jitsi project Z

Right now jitsi.org is very end user _un_friendly - which is a pity
related to the meaning of jitsi for a free web.

Anyway: thx for all developers for the great jitsi projects!

Best regards
