    5 Jitsi Meet is our recommended tool for web-based video conferencing.
     5Jitsi Meet is our recommended tool for web-based video conferencing with 20 or less participants. All participants must use either Chrome, Firefox 76 or later or the Jitsi App. Using other browsers to connect can cause problems for all users. See limitation below before you organize your meeting!

    48 Jitsi meet is solid software, however, getting video and audio to work across different computers and platforms is still quite experimental. Be sure to test thoroughly before relying on a jitsi web conference.
     48 * Jitsi meet works best with 20 or fewer participants.
     49 * If just one participant is using an un-supported browser (like an older version of Firefox or Internet Edge/Explorer or Safari) it can make the entire meeting fail.
     50 * To conserve bandwidth, only the last 8 participants who have spoken will have their video streams sent to everyone else.
     51 * We still have reports of some computers, particularly older ones, struggling to keep up with a meeting.
     52 * If you are using video for all participants, ''each'' participant needs a high bandwidth connection. Alternatively, instruct participants to turn off their video when they are not speaking.
     53 * There is no option dial into a jitsi meeting using a regular phone call on the May First servers
     54 * You cannot record jitsi meet calls (unless you use a separate screen saving app)
     55 * There are no break out rooms - however, you can instruct users to go to different rooms and then return to the main room - it's manual, not automatic
