Hi all. I currently run 5 Droplets as support for the radio station I manage. We’re looking at possibly spinning up another one for a dedicated group/instant messaging/chat server, but I need to figure out the best way to do it.
Currently we’re using Skype for group (5 to 25) and private (1 on 1) messaging, as well as voice chat. But lately Skype is getting TERRIBLE lag and drops, and there’s no solution forthcoming.
Is there a service (or group of services) that I can host on a Droplet with similar functionality?
I’ve considered Jabber, but it seems to lack a group voice chat feature.
