[jitsi-users] Searching a Skype Alternative - have some problems with Jitsi Meet


#1

Hey guys,

first of all thanks for your hard work @jitsi :slight_smile:

I've got a few things where I need help with:

First of all my hardware setup:

Jitsi-Videobridge runs on a machine with eight-core processor, 100Mbit/s Network
and 16Gb RAM. XMPP-Server is Openfire. Configured to allow anonymous users.
There is also an FTP-Server on this machine but shouldn't be that problem. Is only
used for internal file transfers - and not that often.

I followed your project for some months now and I update the videobridge and jitsi
meet every month at least once to see how things are going on.

We have some problems with multi-user video conferences. The quality will go down
and we can't see each other (video has often max around 130p). It will be a little
bit better if people with an slow internet connection will stop there video transfer.

Company-Office: (40Mbit up/downstream)
Second Company-Office( 16Mbit down/ 512 kbit upstream)
Some Home-Office Guys (something about 300-50.000Kbit down and 50-200Kbit upstream)

All I can say is that the down/upstream of each internet connection was only used
for Jitsi Meet, no other downloads or uploads. Jitsi-Meet says that all the
participants have a good connection (had a look at the indicator).

Sound is stable and very good (we use professional microphones for some 100euros...

Is there any option to have a more stable video transfer to each participant
without interruption?

Also we use 720p or 1080p webcams but Jitsi Meet will only transmit at max. 320p -
even if I set the limit "resolution" in the config.js higher (scroll down to see
my config.js).

Next thing is that someone who don't has a webcam can't join the meeting.
Otherwise Jitsi Meet says that it does not have permission to use webcam AND
microphone. Would be better to have an optional possibility to use a webcam.

And at least sometimes a user needs 20+ seconds to join the meeting. It's not very
often but it will need a long time to see and hear each other.

I should mention that skype works fine and without problems. Even the video
quality is much better with the same internet connections.

Hopefully you understand my bad english and can help me with my problems.
Otherwise we need to use another (proprietary) solution where we can communicate
with. And I don't really want that. I like open source tools :slight_smile:

Wish you a nice day, thanks a lot!
