Jit.si is a video conferencing platform that the VCD uses to create virtual meetings. Here are some frequently asked questions about using jit.si.
Jit.si works best with Google Chrome. Firefox is being improved and Safari is technically not supported. From our testing, browsers other than Chrome can cause slow downs, stutters, and issues for all members of the meeting even if all the other users are in Chrome.
Can I record a Jitsi Conference?
Yes. You can either record a file directly to a dropbox account or stream live to youtube and record from there.
Can I call into a Jitsi conference?
Yes, Jitsi offers a telephone interface that allows users to dial into a conference or for placing dial-out reminder calls.
How many users can join a Jitsi Meeting?
There is a hard limit of 75 participants, but at 35 or greater, the experience will suffer. Jitsi is working on adding big meetings with more participants (more than 100).
Is there a time limit for how long a Jitsi meeting can be?
No, the meeting will be active for as long as you remain in it.
