What does jitsi-videobridge do exactly?
It seems to be an XMPP component that helps save bandwidth for video streams. If I run an ejabberd server on my network would I need to use jitsi-videobridge with ejabberd in order to take advantage of the advanced video conferencing features?
Emil said I didn't need to. So is jitsi-videobridge included in the "jitsi" application source as an xmpp component? If so then the same would apply to openfire. So what's the purpose of the separate jitsi-videobridge software and the openfire plugin described above?
Sorry for these novice questions but I've just started to migrate from an early 1.1 custom jitsi code to the latest 2.1 and I'm trying to catch up with the latest development features (you've worked a lot!).
Maybe I've missed it but I haven't found any information regarding jitsi-videobridge on the jitsi.org web site.

Having listened to Emils great talks at FOSDEM, I am interested in
running a local videobridge server for experimenting.
This is the way I setup my sandbox:1. Configure openfire to accept a
jitsi-videobridge component with a preshared secret2. Checkout
jitsi-videobridge (on the same machine as openfire, in my case) and
build it with 'ant compile'
3. Run jitsi-videobridge withant run -D'run.arg.line=--secret=SECRET
