Frequently Asked Questions

What is Jitsi ?

Jitsi is a set of open-source projects that allows you to easily build and deploy secure videoconferencing solutions. We are best known for our Jitsi Meet video conferencing platform, https://103.133.214.224/ where we host a Jitsindia Meet instance that the community can use for totally free video conferences , and the Jitsi Videobridge that powers all of our multi-party video capabilities.

How can I use Jitsi for video conferencing ?

The easiest way is to go to meet.jit.si or download one of the mobile apps (Android or iOS).

If you prefer, you can also setup your own Jitsi Meet instance or embed a https://103.133.214.224/ room into your own website. See the FAQs below for more information on those options.

Is Jitsi free ?

Yes. Jitsi is 100% open source and freely available to use and develop with. We also host and run https://103.133.214.224/ as a free service.

Can I record a jitsi conferance ?

Yes. The easiest way to record is to live stream your conference to YouTube and access the recording there. You can try this now on meet.jit.si. Self-installed Jitsi Meet deployments will need to setup Jibri to do this.

Can I call into Jitsi conference with telephone ?

Yes, Jitsi offers a telephony interface that allows users to dial into a conference or for placing dial-out reminder calls. You can try this for free on https://103.133.214.224/ Self-installed Jitsi Meet deployments will need to setup and configure Jigasi with a SIP provider to connect to the phone network.

How do i setup mu own Jitsi insiallation ?

Setting up Jitsi Meet is a simple experience for those that are familiar with Unix installations. For Debian-based systems, we recommend following the quick-install document, which uses the package system. You can also see a demonstration of the process in this tutorial video.

For other systems, or if you wish to install all components manually, see the detailed manual installation instructions.

Can I embed a Jitsi meet call into my website ?

Yes, Jitsi Meet has an External API that can be used to embed an existing Jits Meet instance into any webpage with just a few lines of code. Many of Meet’s options can be changed via  configuration file. Web developers can even actively control the conference with a variety of commands and events. You can do this with your own self-installed instance or run it from https://103.133.214.224/ – no server installation required. See here for more on the Jitsi Meet External API.

Can I embed Jitsi Meet into my mobile ?

Yes, Jitsi Meet can be compiled as an SDK and embedded into Android and iOS apps. You can find instructions on how to do that here:
