Large, administered conferences

Is Jitsi Meet suitable for conferences with over 90 participants? Can an administrator activate the microphone of a particular participant in the order in which his hand was raised?

That would be a good feature on any JitSi meeting
I made the mistake of muting everybody on a recent meeting to discover that I could not unmute individuals. As it was the first time many had used JitSi …I had an interesting 5 minute training exercise going through how to unmute their mic

@Andy_White, “Remote unmute” by a moderator is not something supported as of April, 2020. There is a long discussion on the ‘super mute’ capability here:

As fast as I know this is still a feature not on the roadmap due to privacy concerns.


Welcome to the community!

Yes, however you may need more than one video bridge, if you are hosting your own Jitsi infrastructure. Please see this post for more details. Host a meeting with 500 people - ideas?

Many thanks for taking the time to post this.
Memo to self. Search the discussions before “knee jerking” a comment.
Having read the discussion you linked…It all makes good sense, we got over the problem and having the zoom ability to unmute someone… does smack of “big brother”
