Install & Config
Discussions related to installation and configuration of all Jitsi products, including Meet. If you have a question on installation packages, building from source, environment specifics, or any of Jitsi’s configuration files and options then it belongs here.
Discussions related to developing with the Jitsi codebase and architectural questions. Search here for bugs, to ask how the the various systems work, or post new issues. If you have a bug or issue related to a specific piece of code or repo, please create an issue in the appropriate github repo.
Discussion related to the Meet UI, Meet features, Meet use cases, the meet.jit.si app, and basic usage of Jitsi products intended for end users. These discussions will tend to be less technical than those in Install & Config and Developers.

Nov 10, 2020 Jitsi Meet, free and safe download. Jitsi Meet latest version: Free video conferencing app. Jitsi Meet is one of the emerging video conferencing apps. Linux: /.jitsi (or /.sip-communicator) § Where do I find the log files? The easiest way to get hold of the log files is to save them to a location of your choice using Jitsi’s GUI. You can do so by clicking on Tools→Options (Jitsi→Preferences on OS X), then selecting. Jitsi Meet lets you stay in touch with all your teams, be they family, friends, or colleagues. Instant video conferences, efficiently adapting to your scale. Unlimited users: There are no artificial restrictions on the number of users or conference participants. Server power and bandwidth are the only limiting factors. No account needed.
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, meet.jit.si where we host a Jitsi 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.
The easiest way is to go to meet.jit.si or download one of the mobile apps (Android or iOS).
Jitsi Meet App Is Of Which Country Code
If you prefer, you can also setup your own Jitsi Meet instance or embed a meet.jit.si room into your own website. See the FAQs below for more information on those options.
Yes. Jitsi is 100% open source and freely available to use and develop with. We also host and run meet.jit.si as a free service.
We have a bunch, but the most popular ones are:
- Jitsi Meet – Secure, Simple and Scalable Video Conferences that you use as a standalone app or embed in your web application
- Jitsi Videobridge – the media server engine (aka Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU)) that powers all of Jitsi’s multi-party video conferences
- Jigasi – a gateway service that connects SIP telephony to a Jitsi Videobridge conference
- Jibri – a broadcaster and recorder used for saving video call recordings and streaming to YouTube Live
- Jidesha – a Chrome and Firefox extension for screensharing
You can see all of our projects on our github page – https://github.com/jitsi
Jitsi Meet includes many features and we are constantly adding more. Some of the main ones are:
- Auto-view the active speaker or click on any attendee to see their video
- Android and iOS apps
- Text chatting (web only)
- Lock a room with a password
- Screen sharing (if jidesha is setup, only required in Chrome)
- Streaming a conference to YouTube live (if Jibri is configured)
- Shared text document based on Etherpad
- Raise/Lower your hand for attention
- Participant talk-time statistics
- Push-to-talk mode
- Play a YouTube video to all attendees call
- Audio-only option
- Telephone dial-in to a conference (if Jigasi is setup)
- Dial-out to a telephone participant (if Jigasi is setup)
- Integration in other apps / websites
Jitsi Meet also includes statistics and integrations features and a callstats.io integration to help developers. Make sure to use meet.jit.si to see the latest features.
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.
Datetime.utcnow uses gettimeofday (2) or time.time on Python 2 (and gmtime (3) to convert the result into broken-down time). Time.time uses gettimeofday (2), ftime (3), time (2). Newer CPython versions may use clockgettime (2), GetSystemTimeAsFileTime. Python datetime utcnow. This function is preferred over today and utcnow. Classmethod datetime.utcnow ¶ Return the current UTC date and time, with tzinfo None. This is like now, but returns the current UTC date and time, as a naive datetime object. An aware current UTC datetime can be obtained by calling datetime.now(timezone.utc). Def ls(args): bucket = resources.s3.Bucket(args.billingreportsbucket.format(accountid=ARN.getaccountid)) now = datetime.utcnow year = args.year or now.year month = str(args.month or now.month).zfill(2) nextyear = year + ((args.month or now.month) + 1) // 12 nextmonth = str(((args.month or now.month) + 1)%. Weirdtz = FixedOffset(timedelta(hours=15, minutes=58), 'weirdtz', 0) utc = FixedOffset(0, 'utc', 0) for dummy in range(3): now = datetime.now(weirdtz) self.assertTrue(now.tzinfo is weirdtz) utcnow = datetime.utcnow.replace(tzinfo=utc) now2 = utcnow.astimezone(weirdtz) if abs(now - now2). Note that for Python 3.2 onwards, the datetime module contains datetime.timezone. The documentation for datetime.utcnow says: An aware current UTC datetime can be obtained by calling datetime.now(timezone.utc). So, datetime.utcnow doesn't set tzinfo to indicate that it is UTC, but datetime.now(datetime.timezone.utc) does return UTC time with tzinfo set.
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 on meet.jit.si. Self-installed Jitsi Meet deployments will need to setup and configure Jigasi with a SIP provider to connect to the phone network.
We are fortunate that our friends at 8×8 fully fund the project. 8×8 uses Jitsi technology in products like Virtual Office. The open source community and meet.jit.si service help to make Jitsi better, which makes 8×8 products better, which helps to further fund Jitsi. This virtuous cycle has worked well in the past and should continue to for many years to come.
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.
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 meet.jit.si – no server installation required. See here for more on the Jitsi Meet External API.
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:
Neither the immediate Jitsi team or 8×8 provide commercial support for Jitsi. Jitsi does enjoy a large developer community with many development shops and individuals that provide support and commercial development services. If you need paid help, we recommend you do a search or post a request on our Community Forum in the paid-word category: https://community.jitsi.org/c/users/paid-work
Jitsi Desktop, formerly known as the SIP Communicator and briefly known as just “Jitsi”, is a VoIP and instant messaging application. This was the Jitsi team’s first project that originated way back in 2003.
Jitsi’s video conferencing capabilities evolved out of this original project. Jitsi Desktop is no longer actively maintained by the Jitsi team under 8×8; but it is still maintained, by the community.
