Jitsi surpasses 20 million monthly active users!
8x8 acquires the Jitsi Technology and team from Atlassian. Jitsi now powers all 8×8 Video Meetings and continues to grow in the heart of many successful initiatives
Atlassian acquires Blue Jimp, making a long-term investment in keeping Jitsi open source, community-based, and pushing the envelope of great video conferences.
Using a prototype from Philipp Hancke as a basis, the Jitsi community starts the Jitsi Meet project: a Web Conferencing application that rivals Hangouts and Skype
Jitsi’s video routing capabilities are extracted in a separate server application and Jitsi Videobridge is born. Later this year Jitsi Videobridge adds support for ICE and DTLS/SRTP, thus becoming compatible with WebRTC clients. This is a first step to its importance in today’s WebRTC ecosystem.
Jitsi adds video conferencing capabilities based on the concept of routing video streams. The client of the conference organizer acts as a video router.
SIP Communicator is renamed Jitsi (from the Bulgarian “жици”, or “wires”), since it now also supports audio and video over XMPP’s Jingle extensions and it would be silly to still call it SIP Communicator.
Emil Ivov and Yana Stamcheva found the Blue Jimp company, which employs Jitsi’s main contributors. They offer professional support and development services.
SIP Communicator gets its first end-to-end encryption through ZRTP
We get our own Wikipedia entry. Look out, world.
SIP communicator is completely rearchitected, adopting a new OSGi based design to make it easier to write plugins for the project.
Emil Ivov, a student at the University of Strasbourg, France, creates SIP Communicator. He also teaches salsa and West Coast swing.
May 8, 2020 “The best open source for online conference” Overall: The experience with Jitsi is overall fantastic. Like I mentioned, it's a little difficult to set it up the first time if you are installing it in your server.
Jitsi Vs Zoom 2020
Jitsi Meet server: Note: By default, anyone who has access to your Jitsi Meet server will be able to start a conference: if your server is open to the world, anyone can have a chat with anyone else. If you want to limit the ability to start a conference to registered users, follow the instructions to set up a secure domain. Key features of Jitsi Meet Encrypted communication (secure communication): As of April 2020, 1-1 calls use the P2P mode, which is end-to-end encrypted via DTLS-SRTP between the two participants. Group calls also use DTLS-SRTP encryption, but rely on the Jitsi Videobridge (JVB) as video router, where packets are decrypted temporarily.
