Jitsi Videobridge 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.

You can find documentation in the doc/ directory in the source tree.

Running it

You can download binary packages for Debian/Ubuntu:

Maven assembly binaries:

Or you can clone the Git repo and run the JVB from source using maven.
