Teleconferencing -

Any thoughts about adding something about Zoom/Skype/Teams alternatives? Jitsi often gets mentioned. I tried it but found it very unreliable in terms of audiovisual quality. Other ideas?

This would be a useful category IMO.

Some possible options to look into (all are labelled open source):

+ already mentioned - Jitsi

Unsure if Mattermost can do video calls. They would probably be the most Teams-like option if so. That or Threema

Never tried Signal, Element, or Session for video calling, can they do it?

They already mentioned that Wire and Threema will not be added. I think it’d be useful to add Jitsi I heard a lot of good things about it. You also can video call on Signal and I think Session too but I wouldn’t use it as a conferencing tool.

Could you link to that mention about
Wire and Threema? I would be curious to know what’s wring with them.

Here you go: Why not recommend Wire and Threema?

I recently had the same question, so as a Zoom alternative I have been trying (and liking) OpenTalk: Virtual meetings - secure and DSGVO-compliant | OpenTalk.

I use it through my subscription:

Jitsi is garbage unless all parties have huge access capacity.
Pixelated, jittery and voice is useless

Poor quality has been my experience of Jitsi.
