Trying to have a video call meetin. with 2 coworkers. Skype is currently unmanageable (that's what we use at work)


FOSS for the win. We switched to Jitsi Meet: no issue at all for 4 people in 3 locations (2 at home, 2 at the office).

The office people want to do a remote gettogether (a "5 ร  7") next Friday, I'll suggest we do it with Jitsi. ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ

@normandc own instance or a public one? Thinking about setting one up for a group "meeting" tomorrow.

Just the official one

But Sunday night with my mom it was not great, very laggy. Thinking of setting up my own instance to, but would a SBC be powerful enough?

@normandc I don't know. Just started a thread asking for advice for a meeting tomorrow.

@normandc well done! I tried moving the office to Jami but they say bad audio quality and switched back to Skype.
Which still have a similar quality (just a little little better)

Yeah, moving to FOSS is always a battle in the workplace. I this case, Skype was plainly just not working. I suggested Jitsi, then only when we were live and it was obviously working, did I mention "BTW Jitsi's FOSS" ๐Ÿ˜„

@normandc We did that last weekend, a friend of mine had is birthday on Saturday so we celebrated on Jitsi. Was actually ver fun
