Choice of Video Platform
For multi-stream video events we need a platform that:
- can scale to 100-200+
- has breakout rooms
- has record functionality
- is stable
- is affordable
- either doesn't require a download or is widely used enough that people have already downloaded
The main open source candidates at present are:
- Jitsi - being discussed here: infra/ops#778 (closed)
- BigBlueButton - used by several partners (including two involved in the first event - who both host instances).
The main private candidates are
- Google Hangouts (will add to this list).
To upload designs, you'll need to enable LFS and have an admin enable hashed storage. More information
