I'm using ejabberd servers for 2 years now for personal and professional
text chat (mainly via pidgin/adium clients).
I saw that the Jitsi team did an amazing work for audio and video
Thanks for your kind words!
But I'm totally lost about all the provided software,
Our bad. We'll need to work on the presentation in the very near
future. You seem to have figured out most things though.
I did some researchs that need confirmation (these are actually questions):
- Jitsi is a xmpp client
Among other things yes. It is also a SIP client a mixer a video
router. It has a very rich feature set so it's hard to pin it as a
single thing. We generally refer to it as an "audio/video"
- JitsiVideoBridge is a xmpp server component, that relay audio/video
to participants using Jitsi
Not necessarily only Jitsi but to any client that is capable of
receiving more than a single video stream at a time.
- Many-to-many audio/video via JitsiVideoBridge require the use of Jitsi
(can't work with pidgin/adium)
It does not exclusively require the use of Jitsi. Pidgin and Adium
don't support all necessary technologies though.
JitsiVideoBridge for webrtc audio/video many-to-many chat
Yes. It is also an XMPP client.
- Jitmeet needs JitsiVideoBridge, that needs a xmpp server. So Jitmeet
requires the installation of ejabberd/openfire...
Yes. We generally use it with Prosody.
- ... So using Jitmeet requires a valid account on the xmpp server
No. We mostly use it with anonymous accounts.
- JitsiVideoBridge can relay streams from/to Jitsi and Jitmeet clients
In theory yes. In practice the two applications are currently
incompatible. We'll fix them though.
Let's say I want many-to-many audio/video streams from/to Jitsi/Jitmeet, can
I use the following:
- Nginx with a virtual server directing to Jitmeet application
Yes. You can find deployment instructions on http://jitmeet.org
I need to rely only on my own server. How about nat traversals without
google's stun server ?
When using the bridge, STUN is unnecessary because all media goes
through the bridge.
I'm totally lost, if anyone could draw an outline of all Jitsi' services,
that would be great !
Hope this helps,
