Rocketchat Jitsi Meet

Rocket.Chat Meet (in some places named as WebRTC) is our own take on implementing pure WebRTC. It still a work in progress but if you want to use it you can go to Administration - WebRTC. From there you can set where video conferences can be held (channels, private rooms, and direct messages). Jitsi on mobile – download our apps and start a meeting from anywhere. Hello, Slack fans! Very pleased to meet you! There's no need to create an account. Connect your calendar to view all your meetings in Jitsi Meet. Plus, add Jitsi meetings to your calendar and start them with one click. Connect your calendar. Jitsi as a Service.

We recommend following the quick-install document. The current document describes the steps that are needed to install a working deployment, but steps are easy to mess up, and the debian packages are more up-to-date, where this document is sometimes not updated to reflect latest changes.

This describes configuring a server jitsi.example.com on a Debian-based distribution.
For other distributions you can adapt the steps (especially changing the dependencies package installations (e.g. for nginx) and paths accordingly) so that it matches your host's distribution.
You will also need to generate some passwords for YOURSECRET1, YOURSECRET2 and YOURSECRET3.

There are also some complete example config files available, mentioned in each section.

There are additional configurations to be done for a scalable installation.

Network description

This is how the network looks:

Note that the -f flag is necessary if there are symlinks left from a previous installation.

If you are using a JDK package not provided by Debian, as the ones from adopjdk, you should also make your JDK aware of the new debian certificate keystore replacing or linking the JDK cacerts. Example, if you use JDK from adoptjdk:

Create conference focus user:

Restart prosody XMPP server with the new config

Install Nginx

Running behind NAT

Jitsi Videobridge can run behind a NAT, provided that both required ports are routed (forwarded) to the machine that it runs on. By default these ports are TCP/4443 and UDP/10000.

If you do not route these two ports, Jitsi Meet will only work with video for two people, breaking upon 3 or more people trying to show video.

TCP/443 is required for the webserver which can be running on another machine than the Jitsi Videobrige is running on.

The following extra lines need to be added to the file ~/.sip-communicator/sip-communicator.properties (in the home directory of the user running the videobridge):
