Video- & audio-conferencing app for Nextcloud
Why is this so awesome?
💬Chat integration! Nextcloud Talk comes with some simple text chat since Nextcloud 13. More features are planned for future versions. 👥Private, group, public and password protected calls! Just invite somebody, a whole group or send a public link to invite to a call. 💻Screen sharing! Share your screen with participants of your call. You just need to use Firefox version 52 (or newer) or Chrome with this Chrome extension. 🚀Integration with other Nextcloud apps! Currently Contacts and users – more to come. 🙈We’re not reinventing the wheel! Based on the great simpleWebRTC library.
And in the works for the coming versions:
🙋Federated calls, to call people on other Nextclouds
If you have suggestions or problems, please open an issue or contribute directly :)
Nextcloud Talk is really easy to install. You just need to enable the app from the Nextcloud App Store and everything will work out of the box.
There are some scenarios (users behind strict firewalls / symmetric NATs) where a TURN server is needed. That's a bit more tricky installation, but the guys from Nextcloud VM have developed a script which takes care of everything for you. You can find the script here. The script is tested on Ubuntu Server 18.04, but should work on 16.04 as well. Please keep in mind that it's developed for the VM specifically and any issues should be reported in that repo, not here.
Here's a short video on how it's done.
Disabling internal camera/audio for testing
- Disable camera until reboot:
sudo modprobe -r uvcvideo
- Re-enable camera:
sudo modprobe uvcvideo
