I spent 1h30 tonight testing 3 videoconferencing apps for a group of elderly people who want to keep in touch in these confinement times. The most important feature was simplicity.
- Jitsi Meet: simple and straightforward, no registration required and no software needed on PC. Unfortunately, performance was abysmal. Impossibly long lag between audio and video.
- Skype: works relatively good but requires registration
- Google Hangouts: best audio video sync, near impossible to start convo!!!
@normandc there's probably a huge load on their servers due to everyone working/meeting remotely... I saw somewhere on mastodon links to other jitsu servers...there's one on framasoft.org for sure
Hey, I found this list on Jitsi's Github wiki:
Public Jitsi Meet instances
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
