Jitsi Video Bridge Plugin Readme
The Jitsi Video Bridge Plugin is an XMPP server component that allows for
multiuser video communication. Unlike the expensive dedicated hardware videobridges,
Jitsi Videobridge does not mix the video channels into a composite video stream,
but only relays the received video channels to all call participants.
Therefore, while it does need to run on a server with good network bandwidth,
CPU horsepower is not that critical for performance. It also includes some useful web conference applications.
The first video conference creating after restarting Openfire may fail. Work around is remove all participants from the room and try again or use a new room.
- Copy the jitsivideobridge.jar file to the OPENFIRE_HOME/plugins directory.
- Restart Openfire.
- Configure the admin properties page.
Under Server settings -> Jitsi Videobridge tab you can configure various parameters.
