I have been tasked to evaluate ways to record Jitsi conferences.
Our problem with the recommended solution Jibri is that it requires a seperate instance per conference that needs recording and it does so using a virtual X-server (if I understood it correctly). This seems very inefficient and may even be an added security risk.
What we’d like is for a recording solution baked into jitsi-videobridge component, like it seems it was implemented already a long time ago but depricated and removed from there in 2017. Can you tell us what the reasoning behind that decision was?
I also found this interesting quite recent article about recording Jitsi conferences:
http :// blog.radiumz .org/en/article/local-recording-jitsi-meet
But sadly it does this using the Jitsi Meet client code running in a browser instead of on the server, which does not meet our requirements.
Can somebody give me further leads or comments on my findings so far or even suggestions how to to achieve our goal?
Thanks a lot for this great open source software suite!
