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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
@shelenn I have no clue what you're talking about, tbh
@rysiek @nextcloud I have used meet.j it.si with up to 9 people and it's great for users with high bandwidth and OK for users with low bandwidth. I've been running these tests weekly for several hours since last July and the results have been consistent. I have not yet attempted to set up my own server, but I'm told by friends who have done so that it's pretty easy. After I set up my own server, I'll likely become a code/docs contributor.
@rysiek @nextcloud the integrations with other services is pretty appealing with Talk. Jitsi has very fast development, including key features for me like *which* mic, camera and sound output device it should use, and phone dial in numbers, but very little in the way of integrations with file sharing, calendar integration, etc. I'm curious to see which one I will choose in the end! :-D
