Putting https://meet.jit.si/ on web page, the video call uses my website bandwidth?

When using the code below, there is no bandwidth being used from my web site for this video chat/meeting, right? it’s all going through Jitsi, correct?

<script src='https://meet.jit.si/external_api.js'></script>
<div id="meeting"></div>
const options = {
 parentNode: document.querySelector('#meeting'),
 roomName: 'JitsiMeetAPIExample',
 width: 700,
 height: 700,    }

meetAPI = new JitsiMeetExternalAPI(“meet.jit.si”, options);

I look forward your reply, thanks

Nope, just for downloading this file.

  1. Just to be clear, you’re saying the video call won’t be using my web site bandwidth?

  2. Downloading which file?


The one with your code above.

Thank you again. damencho.
Additionally, to clarify, if I put this on a web page:
<script src='https://meet.jit.si/external_api.js'></script>

  1. the video call won’t be using my web site bandwidth?

but for self-host like this:

<script src='https://<MY-domain>/external_api.js'></script>

  1. the video call will be using my web site bandwidth?

You need to have a deployment there with jitsi-meet and when initializing JitsiMeetExternalAPI pass the correct domain to use your deployment.


Much thanks again. I hope you don’t mind another question, but by “deployment” do you mean loading these files: GitHub - jitsi/jitsi-meet: Jitsi Meet - Secure, Simple and Scalable Video Conferences that you use as a standalone app or embed in your web application. onto my own server?

By deployment I mean installing jitsi-meet on your server as described here: https://jitsi.org/qi
You need root terminal access to the machine to install those.

And of course having it on my own server will use my bandwidth, or would it all go through jitsi bridge, and not use my bandwidth?

use your own bandwidth
