Sometimes it uses a lot of memory eventually phone gets heat up. Lagging occurs and it disconnects a lot in that case.

Great Free Video Conferencing Solution

Reviewed a year ago

Jitsi allows my team to work from home and successfully communicate. We use it for meetings, one-on-ones, brainstormings, updates, and general communications. Also, I've started to use this software much more often to chat with my family and friends amid pandemic.

Pros

Jitsi Meet is a fully secure, scalable, easy to use, customizable and feature-rich solution, perfect choice for remote everyday use.

Cons

I have not come up against any weaknesses yet. The one thing I can remember, once I've noted an audio delay during the meeting.

The best open source for online conference

Reviewed a year ago

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. But, anyway, there's a docker-compose version (with a very good documentation on their github repository) that takes care of almost everything you need in order to get the software working.

Pros

As a user, the best part about Jitsi is that it doesn't need for people you invite to a conference to register anywhere. You only need to provide them the link to click and Voila! they're in the conference! The audio and video quality is awesome! It also has a feature that makes peer to peer conference in case there are only two people in the conference. It automagically switches to conference mode the moment a third participant joins the conference.

Cons

A con about Jitsi is that, if you're setting it up in your server, there aren't very detailed guides on how to set up each one of the components that it needs to work (although they aren't part of jitsi itself, but would be desirable to have a guide for installing and setting up each component). Also, if you download and want to modify the source, there isn't a very detailed step-by-step that tells you how to do it for each one of the components (there is the mobile app and the web application).

Jitsi or not jitsi

Reviewed 2 months ago

It is very convenient. You can set up a room send the link and start a meeting in a matter of minutes

Pros

It is a videoconference platform. What is great is that you do not have any software to download. You just have to create a room, send the link to the people who must attend the meeting et voila ! The communication is crypted. You can share screen and there is a chat box. It is easy to select the speakers and the microphone in use

Cons

Compare to other videoconference plateform or software, jitsi miss the possibility to organize independant rooms or a virtual whiteboard. You cannot also record it. It is better to use it on Google. Sometime you loose connection or cannot hear someone that neet to reload the browser

I have been using this software for my online classes. It allows you to connect with several people one at a time. It also has options to share messages with the participants.

Cons

One of the major lacking in jitsi is that it crashes alot and sometimes it does not connect you in the meeting. It does not allow screen sharing options and also do not allow you to share documents. There are better options available in market that have better features in terms of video conferencing an

Great Free Open Source Alternative for Video Conferences

Reviewed 2 months ago

We have used Jitsi a lot, and although we will be moving soon to do most of our team meetings in Microsoft Teams, it has served us very well, and we still might use it in the future if we need to work with outside collaborators and are looking for a hassle-free setup and meeting.

Pros

I like that this is an open source project and that it works reliably well. I especially like that it does not require the user to install any application or any browser add-on. We have never had any problems with new users connecting to a Jitsi meeting. I also really like that it allows for recording the meeting (with a connection to Dropbox).

Cons

There are a few minor UI issues that make it a bit bulky to use for newcomers, such as the extensive menu with many options.

Virtual meetings tool

Reviewed 5 months ago

In general, Jitsi is a great option to have virtual meetings or webinars and avoiding having to install or having to do all the hassle from most of the rest of the tools which do the same.

Pros

I really like the fact that this tool is really easy to use, you just need to access the website, chose what you need, and as easy as that you can create a room to have a virtual meeting with co-workers, prospects, or even with your family. This is a great tool when chosing from other options, and specially because time is important for me and my clients.

Cons

I don't like the fact that I need to write a name for the room meeting, I think is a good idea but it can be created automatically, and not having to write something that might sound weird to the participants at the meeting.

Las ventajas fueron que durante todos los 2 semestres de cursado nos ayudo a toda la facultad a llevar a cabo el cursado de clases.

The only VC that respects its users security.

Reviewed a year ago

Excellent, easy to use.

Pros

The only solution on the market that is : - Freely and independently auditable for highest security standards (open source) - Server can be installed on premises if cloud does not offer enough privacy - Perfecly works on Linux/Mac/Win/Android/IOS - Do no require you to register/login or send you personal data before using the service. (Does not track you) Interesting features: - Can focus clients on the users that speaks (voice detection on microphone). - Since it can be installed on premises, it's possible to have very low latency. Additionally, it's totally free and open source. Best value in 2020.

Cons

- Some problems with Firefox when presenter, but works with Chrome. FF ok if just client. - Not possible to resize webcam incrustation when sharing screen. (Just on or off).

MY REVIEW ON THE JITSI APP

Reviewed 4 months ago

Jitsi has helped to improve team work , bridging the gap of distance.

Pros

Jitsi is quite easy to use, has a friendly user interface and other cool features that it comes with without having to install a download a bunch of plugins.

Cons

I observed that when using on an android phone, it can't minimize once it is set to display over all other apps, which is really bugging. And again i don't know if it is just me, but there are no administrative powers like anyone can shut anyone out during a live session.

Whenever you need a conference call...

Reviewed a year ago

For one-on-one calls or small groups, jitsi is our go-to meeting room, especially in lockdown-times.

Pros

The ability to quickly create a meeting room, wich a customized name and an easily accessible URL makes it perfect for everyday use.

Cons

Stability and bandwidth issues, even on a self hosted server, seems to cause some issues with heavy usage unfortunately.

Wonderful Connection to Co-workers

Reviewed 14 days ago

It is fantastic and a wonderful process

Pros

It is a wonderful function that allows screen sharing, person to person interactions, dial-in services - the quality is good and it will revert to audio only if the connection drops down. The best part is feeling secure because the titles of the rooms can be randomized words and it just feels like only people that need to be involved would ever think of.

Cons

The new update did something, where sometimes I have to click the camera twice to get it to not black screen, but beyond that it's been great.

Jitsi nos mantiene conectados

Reviewed a month ago

La verdad me ha gustado mucho la uso recurrentemente, cada vez que necesito tomar decisiones grupales o reuniones para planificaciones rapidas uso esta aplicación ya que es de facil acceso, lo recomiendo totalmente sobretodo en reuniones de planificacion o trabajos en equipo.

Pros

Lo que mas me ha gustado del software es que es muy facil de utilizar, incluso para gente de la tercera edad que no tiene muchos conocimientos de estas aplicaciones, se puede usar de manera rapida sin necesidad de descargar nada y eso es lo que mas me gusta.

Cons

Lo que menos me gusta es que recurrentemente hay problemas con el audio dentro de la aplicacion y que a veces al cargar la pantalla se va a negro y me arroja fuera de la reunion, aunque estos son hechos mas bien aislados y el 90% del tiempo funciona a la perfeccion.

Good

Reviewed 2 years ago

I don't see what sets Jitsi apart from its competitors, but it has all the functions you want in a meeting app.

Pros

Does the job - sometimes have connection problems, but I use Jitsi integrated in third-party app so I do not know which app causes the connection problems. It has all the basic functionality - muting, sharing meeting link, screensharing, easy to use mobile app, ...

Cons

I would like the functionality to share the full screen instead of only individual windows. I assume this will be implemented some day.

We changed after a few months of testing. The rooms ended up giving failure and the number of participants was limited

The ability to create permanent meeting rooms to which users can connect automatically and without permission without the need to send an invitation and renew

nos vemos en Jitsi

Reviewed 15 days ago

Estoy usando jitsi en el trabajo desde hace un par de años debido a la pandemia y me parece fantástico sobre todo para reuniones informales, es una gran manera de permanecer en contacto y hacer reuniones rápidas.

Pros

Lo que mas me gusta es que te permite estar conectado con compañeros, familia, amigos, etc. y te brinda la posibilidad de hacerlo tanto desde el navegador como desde la aplicación. Es muy sencillo de usar para quien no ha tenido ningún tipo de acercamiento a este tipo de aplicaciones y es bastante fácil descubrir las herramientas integradas en el programa, lo recomiendo bastante para seguir en contacto.

Cons

Lo que menos me gusta es que con frecuencia se silencia el micrófono por errores en la aplicación, fuera de eso no hay nada que me disguste y es una alternativa fantástica para seguir en contacto.

Jisti Quality and Privacy

Reviewed 5 months ago

It is a very good application, user friendly, easy to use, and practical for family meeting and business meetings

Pros

When you create a meeting, you are always able to re-enter to the same meeting with the same link, even after you close the application. The Video and the audio have a very good quality. And there is no limitation for time snd number of participants for any meeting.

Cons

The meeting already created, does not save the privacy done by the creator of it. Anyone could be an admin for a meeting, anyone can mute all participants, anyone can enable or disable the lobby functionality.

Encrypted, open source, SAFE platform for virtual meetings

Reviewed a year ago

Jitsi is the free, secure, open-source version of video meetings that WON’T steal your information!

Pros

Jitsi has a lot of the features that you would expect for virtual meeting - chat, raise hand, video capability, screen share.

Cons

As far as I can tell, you can not necessarily set up a future meeting, as in the meeting only begins when someone starts it. I’m not sure this is really a con though, just different from other platforms!

A good alternative for making video calls

Reviewed 3 months ago

It is a good option to include users quickly, since you do not need to register, just the link of the room to enter.

Pros

This tool is an excellent option for making audio and video calls. Just create a room and post the link for anyone to join the meeting. No registration is required, which makes access even simpler. You can share the screen and write in the message area.

Cons

I used the web version (browser) and found the audio and video quality great. The only negative point is that the messaging area (chat) has few resources. There is no option to share files.

Surpassed what Zoom Provided

Reviewed 6 months ago

EXCELLENT.

Pros

I have only three meetings per month. They run about 70 minutes in length. The free option was not good for me, as we cannot stop and start our meeting. Zoom would not offer discounted pricing for individual very light usage. For the ten minute overage Jitsi gave me just what we needed. Have not used it live yet, but it seems very stable.

Cons

One of the TEST meeting attendes did not show up on one of the computers. I could not figure out why. We even quit both computers, then rejoined the meeting. Not sure how critical this will be.
