Thank you in advance for your great work on Jitsi!
I am working with a Cyber Charter K-12 organization that is a heavy user of video classes, to tailor and launch a self hosted Jitsi system for online classes. Currently we’re using conferencing from another vendor.
Most classes are quite small and are a great fit for Jitsi in its current state, however there are a few courses which have over 100 participants. Initially we were planning on modifying the Jitsi-meet client to display a CDN distributed livestream for these large classes, but still allow participation and questions from students. With LastN=1 or 2 of course. More recently, we had been hoping to (mis?)use octo to distribute large single conferences over multiple JVBs even though the users are all geographically nearby. This has only gotten to the small proof of concept stage.
In this thread Damencho mentions:
Currently you cannot create a meeting with 200 people. We have a hard limit of 75 participants, but even more than 35, the experience will suffer. But we are working on adding big meetings with more participants (more than 100).
Could anyone provide an update on the timeline for this feature, and also point us in the direction of a way to try even a rough beta version of large rooms if possible? We are also happy to participate in any way possible on the development and testing of this feature.
I see in [jitsi-dev] JVB scalability from Boris that there isn’t a specific timeline, but we’re still happy to assist in development of this feature in any way possible.
