Jitsi Videobridge plugin ver 1.2

Ignite realtime is proud to present Jitsi videobridge plugin version 1.2.

The version now includes the original JitMeet web application from Jitsi as well as the Openfire flavored version, OfMeet and a video-enhanced version of Candy. OfMeet works best with the websockets plugin for Openfire. Edit the config.js file to suit your openfire deployment.

Please note that Jitsi Videobridge plugin web applications have been re-organised. This affects application URLs. See readme file below for more details.

Jitsi Video Bridge Plugin Readme

Overview

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 includes the OfMeet video conference application using WebRTC as well as a simple Spark plugin.

Known Issues

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.

Installation

  1. Copy the jitsivideobridge.jar file to the OPENFIRE_HOME/plugins directory.
  2. Restart Openfire.
  3. Configure the admin properties page.

Configuration

Under Server settings -> Jitsi Videobridge tab you can configure the range of UDP ports to be used by the videobridge.

How to use

Make sure:

  • you are using Google Chrome as your web browser
  • you have a webcam installed and ready for use for each user
  • you have opened ports 50000 - 60000 (or whatever you configured) on your openfire server

Hi Dele,

I’ve just updated my OF server to the last release and deployed the plugin.

Unfortunately I’ve a differente setup from the standard one (opened standard 443 https ports for the web application) and I would need to know how to modify, if there is the possibility, the Spark plugin in order to let the Chrome Browser to open the url at this address:

https://mydomain.it/ofmeet/?r=testconf

instead of:

https://mydomain.it:7443/ofmeet/?r=testconf

would it be possible?

Thanks a lot for the great job.
