Jitsi Meet - Secure, Simple and Scalable Video Conferences

Jitsi Meet is an open-source (Apache) WebRTC JavaScript application that uses Jitsi Videobridge to provide high quality, scalable video conferences. You can see Jitsi Meet in action here at the session #482 of the VoIP Users Conference.

You can also try it out yourself at https://meet.jit.si .

Jitsi Meet allows for very efficient collaboration. It allows users to stream their desktop or only some windows. It also supports shared document editing with Etherpad.


Installing Jitsi Meet is quite a simple experience. For Debian-based systems, we recommend following the quick-install document, which uses the package system.

For other systems, or if you wish to install all components manually, see the detailed manual installation instructions.


You can download Debian/Ubuntu binaries:

Building the sources

Jitsi Meet uses Browserify. If you want to make changes in the code you need to install Browserify. Browserify requires nodejs.

On Debian/Ubuntu systems, the required packages can be installed with:

sudo apt-get install npm nodejs-legacy
cd jitsi-meet
npm install

To build the Jitsi Meet application, just type


Working with the library sources(lib-jitsi-meet).

By default the library is build from its git repository sources. The default dependency path in package.json is :

"lib-jitsi-meet": "jitsi/lib-jitsi-meet",

To work with local copy you must change the path to:

"lib-jitsi-meet": "file:///Users/name/local-lib-jitsi-meet-copy",

To make the project you must force it to take the sources as 'npm update' will not do it.

npm install lib-jitsi-meet --force && make

Or if you are making only changes to the library:

npm install lib-jitsi-meet --force && make deploy-lib-jitsi-meet

Alternative way is to use npm link. It allows to link lib-jitsi-meet dependency to local source in few steps:

cd lib-jitsi-meet

# create global symlink for lib-jitsi-meet package
npm link

cd ../jitsi-meet

# create symlink from the local node_modules folder to the global lib-jitsi-meet symlink
npm link lib-jitsi-meet

So now after changes in local lib-jitsi-meet repository you can rebuild it with npm run install and your jitsi-meet repository will use that modified library. Note: when using node version 4.x, the make file of jitsi-meet do npm update which will delete the link, no longer the case with version 6.x.

If you do not want to use local repository anymore you should run

cd jitsi-meet
npm unlink lib-jitsi-meet
npm install


Please use the Jitsi dev mailing list to discuss feature requests before opening an issue on Github.


Jitsi Meet started out as a sample conferencing application using Jitsi Videobridge. It was originally developed by then ESTOS' developer Philipp Hancke who then contributed it to the community where development continues with joint forces!
