Jitsi is a free messenger client for Mac, which supports most major protocols and even supports video and audio conversations. Simply choose the IM protocol that you'd like to connect to including SIP, Google Talk, XMPP/Jabber, MSN or Windows Live Messenger, AIM, Bonjour, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger and Facebook chat.

I have installed JITSI on my MAC mini Apple computer. In configuration window required SIP information "User name and password'. I used my professional email and password. But showing error message of Certificate. Message is: " Jitsi can't verify the identity of the server when connecting to .....

What is required here ? 

Jitsi desktop is an older and completely separate project from jitsi-meet and was developed with the aim of allowing people to communicate with XMPP servers like google chat.

If we look at the Jitsi community forum - https://community.jitsi.org/t/how-to-use-jitsi-desktop-meet-on-my-pc/28864 it seems that it is not recommended for use with Jitsi videobridge ... although the Prosody component of the jitsi server is an XMPP server, the jicofo conference focus server and the jitsi videobridge are also users who connect to the prosody xmpp server internally.


Thanks ! I am interested to develop JITSI video application on MAC platform.

MAC mini system is available for developing and testing of JITSI installation. Configuration is 1.4 GHz, Intel Core i5, Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Graphic Intel HD Graphic 5000 15536 MB, Operating System: CATALINA- 10:15:6

What is recommended ?

Since the officially supported client is web based, the most promising approach for developing a cross-platform desktop app seems to be to use the Electron framework, which will basically give  a Chrome based browser engine bundled with the node.js engine.



(the official whatsapp and microsoft teams desktop apps are also built using electronjs)
