Has anyone used Jitsi or Jami for a large meeting? 10 or more people?
Jitsi, and it worked well.
I just tested Jitsi, and my opinion is different.
Here some comparison between Zoom and Jitsi.
= First look and feel on usability: I was never impressed by Zoom's usability, but now I have to tested Jitsi, I must say Zoom beats Jitsi.
= The Browser experience: On an iPad using Chrome on the Jitsi interface is very unresponsive, Zoom web interface is very responsive on all OS'es and browsers.
= Desktop app on Linux, Mac, Windows: Zoom yes, Jitsi, Yes.
= Bandwidth usage: with only two devices in the Jitsi meeting it already started to complain about the bandwidth not being optimal. With the same devices in a Zoom meeting using HD webcams the bandwidth is no problem.
= Breakout rooms: Zoom has them, as far I can find Jitsi doesn't. I need them as I use Zoom for my work, without Jitsi is a no-go zone.
= Browser support: Jitsi complained that my Safari wasn't gonna give me the best experience, so on my tablet I could switch to Chrome or download the app. On my iPhone I had Chrome installed, but was forced to download and install the app. Zoom supports all mayor browser.
= Screen share: On my three monitor setup, in Zoom I can share any window or a separate monitor screen. In Jitsi, I could share windows, and only my three monitor wide full screen image.
= Separate video streams from view/presentation screen: In Zoom, I can do a dual monitor setup with the video gallery in a separate window so I free up my presentation screen. On the second screen I can keep an eye on my participants and how they react to my presentation.
= Virtual background: Zoom can work with green screen and virtual background don on modern CPU's. Jitsi has only a Beta blur screen that is not usefull.
= Meeting organizer has full control: Zoom - Yes, Jitsi - No, the all users are moderators is a joke when using it in professional work envirionment.
= End to End encryption: Zoom, Yes, but only between client and Zoom server. All data channeled thru the Zoom servers isn't. Jitsi, Yes, only in a 1 on 1 meeting, as soon as you setup a multiple participant meeting it's like Zoom.
Jitsi website wrote:In the case of multiparty meetings all audio and video traffic is still encrypted on the network (again, using DTLS-SRTP). Packets are decrypted while traversing Jitsi Videobridge; however they are never stored to any persistent storage and only live in memory while being routed to other participants in the meeting.
So all in all, Jitsi is as insecure a Zoom and has only a sub-set of the features I need during my work.
