[Video] Installing Jitsi Meet with whiteboard from scratch

This is not a full guide, but I hope it helps people until I take the time to make a proper guide for people who want to run Jitsi Meet on their own computer and have the wonderful excalidraw working!

Software used:
Windows 10
Virtualbox 7.0.4
PuTTY
debian-11.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso

You need 2 DDNS IPs for this to work and you can get 2 of them free at www.freemyip.com

Also, you need the correct ports open for the Jitsi install to work. Here’s the ports I have open for it in my DD-WRT router: (I probably opened way more than I need but whatever)
TCP:
80
443
3002
4443
4444
5349
5222
9090
9091

UDP:
3478
10000

Also, make sure at 10:30 in my video that your repository looks like that. A problem I was having with the install is that debian had selected the DVD as a source and it was missing other ones so my install would fail.

If you see a DVD repository in there such as deb [trusted=yes] cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.5.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20220910-10:40]/ bullseye contrib main
I would comment it out by adding a pound sign in the front like this #deb [trusted=yes] cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.5.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20220910-10:40]/ bullseye contrib main

Special thanks to @emrah emrah for his wonderful script that does the majority of the work to get recording and streaming working out of the box! Very helpful for newbies like me. :smiley:
