Anybody any suggestions for a free software #teleconferencing solution that could handle 10-15 people simultaneously? I had mixed experiences with meet.jit.si. I also know there's @nextcloud Talk app which kinda works, but never got around to testing it more extensively.
@moonman it's a mixed bag. Sometimes it works, sometimes the sound quality is abysmal. The experience gets potentially worse as the groupof people on the call gets larger.
@rysiek @email@example.com I'm very interested in the results of this as well. Jitsi has some severe limitations without working multi-cast, which I think is only in chrome. I'm using Zoom for work stuff, but obviously not FLOSS. If it's audio-only, there's many SIP options open to you, but I've never had good luck with video SIP, let alone in a big group.
Jami seems pretty good as well.
Do keep an eye on non-free software (zoom, face time, etc).
I posted about this a while back and had some good suggestions.
@rysiek meet.jit.si is only one #Jitsi instance among many. Try another one https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wiki/Jitsi-Meet-Instances or install your own when it's overloaded. There are several good tutorials around.
@rysiek ✅ jitsi works great imho if no one on the call uses Firefox. There is a bug in jitsi that causes things to degrade for everyone if there is a user on Firefox on the call on a poor connection. Hope they fix it soon.
@rysiek already on it. So far meetjit.si is the king
@rysiek Other People's Polycoms 😈
@rysiek plus ekiga or linphone or something ofc
@shelenn @nextcloud @rysiek are you talking about SecondLife? It's great when the people involved are used to these kind of applications. But when the company I was in at the time tried it most of the executives never touched a video game after Super Mario - or in some cases, Pong.
The user confusion was ... high.
@rysiek I thought I should also add plain radio to the “oss teleconferencing” suite list. :p
@rysiek mumble for sure.
@shelenn I have no clue what you're talking about, tbh
