Jitsi Meet is an Open Source WebRTC JavaScript application that uses Jitsi Videobridge to provide high quality, scalable video conferences.

All you need to know really is that it is a great piece of software to host your own online video meeting with others, with little to no constraint for anyone.

Update 2021-02-24: latest Chromium version 88.0.4324 (available in Debian repositories) fixes the desktop sharing issues, so we highly recommend to update your Chromium browser to that version.

We are experiencing issues when doing screen sharing on a dual-screen GNU/Linux desktop. On Chromium it crashes the particular Chrome tab, on Firefox it crashed the whole OS ⚠

Also, if it fails on Chromium, closing the tab and opening a new one (within the same browser) tends to fix the issue, allowing you to share your screen just fine.

The User documentation in the link will present you with pretty much everything you need to know. As a Nomagic user, you will be able to open a meeting room after authenticating with your usual credentials.

If you send a link to a meeting in advance and are late for the meeting, others will be invited to wait for you (the host) 💺


What about Jitsi Meet in Matrix/Element ?

It's working ! If you are more than 2 people in a room, Jitsimeet widget will get started when clicking on the video button.

I missed the 'Allow' microphone / webcam initial step
