  1. Nice article tried this a few years back but gave up. Question, Think this will run on Raspbian? How bad is cpu and ram with 4 clients?

    1. Anyone can share *their* desktop. But you can’t control someone else’s. If you want to share a presentation or whiteboard or something you could each find a webservice that allows collaboration and then desktop share this.

  2. to enable extension :

    “CBarth a dit :
    For Win7 (or win10):

    1) download Chrome group policy templates here: http://dl.google.com/dl/edgedl/chrome/policy/policy_templates.zip
    2) Copy [zip]\windows\chrome.admx to c:\windows\policydefinitions
    3) Copy [zip]\windows\[yourlanguage]\chrome.adml to c:\windows\policydefinitions\[yourlanguage]\chrome.adml (not c:\windows\[yourlanguage])
    4) In Chrome, go to Settings -> Extensions
    5) Check the Developer Mode checkbox at the top
    6) Scroll down the list of disabled extensions and note the ID’s of the extensions you want to enable. LogMeIn, for example, is ID: nmgnihglilniboicepgjclfiageofdfj
    7) Click Start -> Run, and type gpedit.msc
    8) Expand User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Google -> Google Chrome -> Extensions
    9) Double-click to open “Configure extension installation whitelist”
    10) Select “Enabled”, then click “Show…”
    11) In the list, enter all the ID’s for the extensions you noted in Step 6
    12) Click OK and restart Chrome.”

  3. Adam, thanks a lot for your really helpful post. Helped me to set up my own jitsi server.

    > Update: Sept 3. Juan worked out how to get the extension in the chrome store. Was easy apparently but cost $25USD.

    I paid only $5USD:
    – first create a new Google account or use an existing one.
    – then login to: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/developer/dashboard?hl=en
    – upload your extension
    – pay $5USD
    – publish your extension


  4. Not mentioned in the rest of the docs is this….you need to set up several sub-domains, namely:

    conference.[your jitsi domain]
    auth.[your jitsi domain]
    focus.[your jitsi domain]
    jitsi-videobridge.[your jitsi domain]

    Hi Adam
    Do we need to point all of these subdomains to the same server IP? And also do we need to generate SSL from letsencryot for all?
    Thx Laszlo

  5. I have not seen these details anywhere else.

    You have mentioned to setup these sub-domains

    conference.[your jitsi domain]
    auth.[your jitsi domain]
    focus.[your jitsi domain]
    jitsi-videobridge.[your jitsi domain]

    Where to setup them? In /etc/prosody/conf.d/[YOUR JITSI DOMAIN].cfg.lua?

    Do I also need to create these sub-domains in my domain dns settings?

    When I see this link I get confused https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md
