Firstly, hello to our fellow open source community at Jitsi - this is AtomJump’s first post! We are also an open source tool, but focused on live textual messaging (atomjump.org / atomjump.com). We think our services are pretty complementary to what you have been working on, and we include a link to the Jitsi service on each of our forums, as our video chat provider. Our messaging tool is PHP / NodeJS based and includes a plugin library not too different to e.g. the Wordpress plugin library.
Introductions over: our office is based one street away from where the Christchurch, New Zealand terror attack occurred last Friday. Facebook are coming under increasing fire for their video broadcasting feature, which was used to broadcast a horrific live stream of the terrorist’s massacre from the attacker’s head.
As an open source provider we feel it is our duty to remove the video broadcasting capability of our service. My question is, can this be done easily if we are simply linking to Jitsi? Do we need to have our own installation running? And in the wider picture, is this an issue you will consider making inactive, generally, or at least restrict the usage of. We believe it is a serious social issue, but are relieved that both of our tools are open source, and we can actually choose how to set them up, if we wish.
With kind regards,
