@selea Are their servers still online or did this work p2p? I forgot.

@:debian:πšœπšŽπš•πšŽπšŠ:trisquel: @Tor Christian πŸ‡§πŸ‡» That does at least support established (though slightly outdated) standards for video conferencing, and should be able to talk to any other client or mcu also supporting these standards. Imo a much better choice than zoom (or any of the other popular offerings these days.)

@selea oh my gosh. That just looks like something that would make me want to throw my computer at the wall. How good or bad was it? Internet was and still is pretty unreliable in my part of Michigan.


Well, I have not been able to test it just yet to get a 2020 impression. But back in the 90's/early 00's it worked well and I used to talk to my grandmother and grandfather that was located in another country

@selea Teams is basically Microsoft Comic Chat in new clothes. 😁

Meanwhile, my Uni integrates Zoom into Online Course System to check who is attending classes by joining to meetings.

They definitely didn't make a market research. Jitsi is open source and University already has enough computers in lab that can be reutilized as server. Instead those computers will sit still and probably collect dust.

@AliMurtezaYesil :antiverified: Not only that. They should look at Big BLue Button which is far superior then zoom when it comes to online classes and it is as well open source. I managed to deploy it at work and ever since everyone ditched zoom.
