Openfire Meetings is a complete standalone plugin powered by Jitsi Videobridge. It does not depend on any other plugins. It can be enhanced by adding the optional client control and fastpath plugins. The client control plugin will enable the management and user provisioning of PDF presentation urls and conference bookmarks. Users can select presentations and conferences from a pull down list.

It also has a meeting planner feature that enables you to schedule meetings in advance using a calendar. When you add a meeting to the calendar, a request to join the meeting is automatically generated and sent to each participant using Openfire's email service 15 mins before the meeting starts. Included in the email is a link to join the meeting from a Chrome web browser.
