Jitsi is a set of open-source projects that allows you to easily build and deploy secure videoconferencing solutions. We are best known for our Jitsi Meet video conferencing platform, meet.jit.si where we host a Jitsi Meet instance that the community can use for totally free video conferences , and the Jitsi Videobridge that powers all of our multi-party video capabilities.
The easiest way is to go to meet.jit.si or download one of the mobile apps (Android or iOS).
If you prefer, you can also setup your own Jitsi Meet instance or embed a meet.jit.si room into your own website. See the FAQs below for more information on those options.
Yes. Jitsi is 100% open source and freely available to use and develop with. We also host and run meet.jit.si as a free service.

- Jigasi – a gateway service that connects SIP telephony to a Jitsi Videobridge conference
- Jibri – a broadcaster and recorder used for saving video call recordings and streaming to YouTube Live
- Jidesha – a Chrome and Firefox extension for screensharing

Jitsi Video Conference
Yes, Jitsi offers a telephony interface that allows users to dial into a conference or for placing dial-out reminder calls. You can try this on meet.jit.si. Self-installed Jitsi Meet deployments will need to setup and configure Jigasi with a SIP provider to connect to the phone network.
We are fortunate that our friends at 8×8 fully fund the project. 8×8 uses Jitsi technology in products like Virtual Office. The open source community and meet.jit.si service help to make Jitsi better, which makes 8×8 products better, which helps to further fund Jitsi. This virtuous cycle has worked well in the past and should continue to for many years to come.
Setting up Jitsi Meet is a simple experience for those that are familiar with Unix installations. For Debian-based systems, we recommend following the quick-install document, which uses the package system. You can also see a demonstration of the process in this tutorial video.
For other systems, or if you wish to install all components manually, see the detailed manual installation instructions.
Yes, Jitsi Meet has an External API that can be used to embed an existing Jits Meet instance into any webpage with just a few lines of code. Many of Meet’s options can be changed via configuration file. Web developers can even actively control the conference with a variety of commands and events. You can do this with your own self-installed instance or run it from meet.jit.si – no server installation required. See here for more on the Jitsi Meet External API.
Yes, Jitsi Meet can be compiled as an SDK and embedded into Android and iOS apps. You can find instructions on how to do that here:
Neither the immediate Jitsi team or 8×8 provide commercial support for Jitsi. Jitsi does enjoy a large developer community with many development shops and individuals that provide support and commercial development services. If you need paid help, we recommend you do a search or post a request on our Community Forum in the paid-word category: https://community.jitsi.org/c/users/paid-work
Jitsi Desktop, formerly known as the SIP Communicator and briefly known as just “Jitsi”, is a VoIP and instant messaging application. This was the Jitsi team’s first project that originated way back in 2003.
Jit Video Conference 2019
Jitsi’s video conferencing capabilities evolved out of this original project. Jitsi Desktop is no longer actively maintained by the Jitsi team under 8×8; but it is still maintained, by the community.
The Jitsi Community Forum is best place to go for all kinds of discussion on Jitsi projects.
