Jitsi Meet: Architecture Design

In this section a global overview of the Jitsi infrastructure is provided. If you just started contributing to the project, we highly recommend reading this section thoroughly. Components Jitsi comprises a collection of projects: Jitsi Meet - WebRTC compatible JavaScript application that uses Jitsi Videobridge to provide high quality, scalable video conferences. Build upon React and React Native Jitsi Videobridge (JVB) - WebRTC compatible server designed to route video streams amongst participants in a conference Jitsi Conference Focus (jicofo) - server-side focus component used in Jitsi Meet conferences that manages media sessions and acts as load balancer between each of the participants and the videobridge.

Jitsi Meet: Quality and Evolution

Jitsi is a fast growing software package, which requires a flexible development culture. Especially during the Covid-19 pandemic the demand for Jitsi Meet and similar web conferencing software has exploded. This forced rapid innovation and focus on scalability from the core team. Besides these recent developments, the Jitsi community has an established work flow. The core team decides the direction of the project and takes lead in implementing core features, and the community addresses and implements features that are less crucial.

Jitsi Meet: The Architectural Decisions

In this essay, we explore how the fundamental concepts and properties of Jitsi Meet are realized through the system’s architectural elements and relationships, as well as the principles of design and evolution. We look at the different components that Jitsi Meet consists of and how these interact with each other, at runtime and in architecture. Finally we also look at the two APIs that are included in the product. Main architectural style Jitsi Meet consists of several main applications, like the web application and the applications for Android and iOS.
