[emacs-berlin] feedback on last meetup

Dear all,

for various reasons I sadly could not attend the meetup yesterday and also missed the last few ones … so this is just a bit of a random input:

Since the need for video hangout is quite present I looked into different solutions and just set up a jitsi server.
Just in case this might be interesting for anyone on this list. It seems to be reasonable secure and is opensource. https://jitsi.org/ <https://jitsi.org/>

You can use the server they provide or setup one yourself.
It is easy to setup on a Server -> follow instructions here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md <https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md>

And if you wish to limit the ability to create new rooms to a registered user, follow theses instructions: https://github.com/jitsi/jicofo#secure-domain

You might need to restart some services afterwards so do:
prosodyctl restart
systemctl restart jicofo
systemctl restart jitsi-videobridge

For firewall settings opening 443/tcp and 10000:20000/udp seems sufficient.
I am neither a linux-server nor a security expert by any means - so please take all this with caution and evaluate yourself.

Hope you are all ok and stay healthy!
Cheers Micha
