How do video conferences work with Jitsi?
By integrating the open source solution Jitsi into EGroupware, you can easily set up video conferences or plan them with several participants.
You can either install your own Jitsi server or register any public Jitsi server.
By default EGroupware uses the Jitsi server of the Jitsi project meet.jit.si for own installations. In the EGroupware Cloud we run our own jitsi server, which is preset for all instances. With this service we contribute to the management of the Corona crisis and would like to help many people in their home office to make their daily work easier.
Schedule a videoconference or call directly
From the EGroupware address book you can start a call or schedule a conference directly with a “right click”. It does not matter if the participant is a user of EGroupware or an external contact. Even if you only know the e-mail address of the participant, it is enough to invite him to the video call.
This makes it easier for you to plan and conduct conferences. No further tool is required. Since the data connection is encrypted at all times and the server is located in Germany, there are no data protection legal concerns. This may be different at present when using foreign service providers, where sometimes data protection guidelines are not easily visible or sometimes the connection is not encrypted. We will be happy to assist you with questions about video conferencing.
Webinar recording for video conferencing
