Question

Self hosted video conference recording system

Hi people,

I want to know if you know of any alternative to be able to use a DigitalOcean server to record the meetings that are made in Jitsi Meet. Jitsi itself says that with Jibri; but it asks for a lot of resources, plus it uses Chrome, a Chrome extension and Java 8 (only with that version it works). Which makes it, in my opinion, unsafe, expensive and inefficient.

There are several ways to record in our local hard disk and then upload to the server; but we are looking for a solution to skip that steps and record directly in a droplet.

Does anyone have experience with a similar situation? Even if it’s not with Jitsi, I’m interested to read about it.

Thank you

Hi there,

We recently had a similar discussion here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/self-hosted-video-conferencing-options-pros-and-cons-setup-guides

I could suggest going through that discussion as there are a few options specified there.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
