Jitsi Video Bridge

Integrated with our XMPP server

The jitsi video bridge is an XMPP plugin to our ejabberd XMPP server (running on mcchesney) installed as part of #10427.

The video bridge is installed via the jitsi team's apt respository (deb unstable/) in mcchesney:/etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi.list. The name of the package is: jitsi-videobridge.

It is configured to work with ejabberd thanks to the following lines in /etc/ejabberd.cfg:

Note: ejabberd must be started with these configuration lines before you start the video bridge (which is started using a standard init script - /etc/init.d/jitsi-videobridge).

User documentation on how to use it via the jitsi chat client is on our jabber page.

Stand-alone web version

In addition, on galeano, we have a self-contained instance of jitsi video bridge along with the web application.

It was installed by following the quick install directions.

User documentation on how to use it via a web browser is available on our web conferencing page.
