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!

  • Thank you for your thread suggested; but my questions goes beyond. We want to save the meeting, not only have a videoconference with video enabled. We want to save the meeting so our clients would visit it later; but we are worried to host it in another server that isn’t ours because of the privacy of the information

    • Hello,

      I believe that alongside its video and voice conferencing features, BigBlueButton provides screen sharing, whiteboard, recording, presentation sharing, file and attachment sharing, notes, webcam streaming, multi-presenter support and more.

      Hope that this helps!
