Jitsi is also the default video meeting option for Rocket Chat, another open source team chat collaboration tool. In the broader battle of the tech stacks, all these products are also competitors. That is, 8x8 is using Jitsi to entice users into trying its suite of unified communication and collaboration tools. Here, you can download Jitsi Desktop, Jitsi Meet and Jitsi Videobridge. Use the stable builds for more consistent behaviour. Latest nightlies are also quite usable and contain all our latest and greatest additions. Jitsi is a set of Java- and WebRTC-based applications for secure videoconferencing, including Jitsi Videobridge and Jitsi Meet, plus tools for audio, dial-in, recording, and simulcasting. Jitsi also has a strong developer community supporting the open-source project. A product's price can vary greatly based on features needed, support or training required, and customization requests. When you find a product that fits your needs, you should talk to the vendor to figure out what they can offer. $ 14.99 /Per-Month.

Sample applications using the SDK

If you want to see how easy integrating the Jitsi Meet SDK into a native application is, take a look at thesample applications repository.

Build your own, or use a pre-build SDK artifacts/binaries

Jitsi conveniently provides a pre-build SDK artifacts/binaries in its Maven repository. When you do not require anymodification to the SDK itself or any of its dependencies, it's suggested to use the pre-build SDK. This avoids thecomplexity of building and installing your own SDK artifacts/binaries.

We have to kill the process in order for apache to work: type this. Sudo kill sudo lsof -t -i:80; and then by xampp apache should finally work, and it can be verified by viewing localhost and phpmyadmin. Xampp apache web server not starting ubuntu. Step 1 – Stop apache web server from xampp panel. Step 2 – choose httpd.conf from config menu on xampp panel. Step 3 – insert below code to the end of file. ThreadStackSize 8388608. Step 4 – Start the apache web server.

Use pre-build SDK artifacts/binaries

In your project, add the Maven repositoryhttps://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-maven-repository/raw/master/releases and thedependency org.jitsi.react:jitsi-meet-sdk into your build.gradle files.

The repository typically goes into the build.gradle file in the root of your project:

Dependency definitions belong in the individual module build.gradle files:

Build and use your own SDK artifacts/binaries

Show building instructions

Start by making sure that your development environment is set up correctly.

A note on dependencies: Apart from the SDK, Jitsi also publishes a binary Maven artifact for some of the SDK dependencies (that are not otherwise publicly available) to the Jitsi Maven repository. When you're planning to use a SDK that is built from source, you'll likely use a version of the source code that is newer (or at least different) than the version of the source that was used to create the binary SDK artifact. As a consequence, the dependencies that your project will need, might also be different from those that are published in the Jitsi Maven repository. This might lead to build problems, caused by dependencies that are unavailable.

If you want to use a SDK that is built from source, you will likely benefit from composing a local Maven repository that contains these dependencies. The text below describes how you create a repository that includes both the SDK as well as these dependencies. For illustration purposes, we'll define the location of this local Maven repository as /tmp/repo

In source code form, the Android SDK dependencies are locked/pinned by package.json and package-lock.json of the Jitsi Meet project. To obtain the data, execute NPM in the jitsi-meet project directory:

This will pull in the dependencies in either binary format, or in source code format, somewhere under /node_modules/

Third-party React Native modules, which Jitsi Meet SDK for Android depends on, are download by NPM in source codeor binary form. These need to be assembled into Maven artifacts, and then published to your local Maven repository.A script is provided to facilitate this. From the root of the jitsi-meet project repository, run:

This will build and publish the SDK, and all of its dependencies to the specified Maven repository (/tmp/repo) inthis example.

You're now ready to use the artifacts. In your project, add the Maven repository that you used above (/tmp/repo) into your top-level build.gradle file:

You can use your local repository to replace the Jitsi repository (maven { url 'https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-maven-repository/raw/master/releases' }) when you published all subprojects. If you didn't do that, you'll have to add both repositories. Make sure your local repository is listed first!

Then, define the dependency org.jitsi.react:jitsi-meet-sdk into the build.gradle file of your module:

Note that there should not be a need to explicitly add the other dependencies, as they will be pulled in as transitivedependencies of jitsi-meet-sdk.

Using the API

Jitsi Meet SDK is an Android library which embodies the whole Jitsi Meetexperience and makes it reusable by third-party apps.

First, add Java 1.8 compatibility support to your project by adding thefollowing lines into your build.gradle file:

To get started, extends your android.app.Activity fromorg.jitsi.meet.sdk.JitsiMeetActivity:

Alternatively, you can use the org.jitsi.meet.sdk.JitsiMeetView class whichextends android.view.View.

Note that this should only be needed when JitsiMeetActivity cannot be used forsome reason. Extending JitsiMeetView requires manual wiring of the view tothe activity, using a lot of boilerplate code. Using the Activity instead of theView is strongly recommended.

Show example


This class encapsulates a high level API in the form of an Android FragmentActivitywhich displays a single JitsiMeetView. You can pass a URL as a ACTION_VIEWon the Intent when starting it and it will join the conference, and will beautomatically terminated (finish() will be called on the activity) when theconference ends or fails.


The JitsiMeetView class is the core of Jitsi Meet SDK. It's designed todisplay a Jitsi Meet conference (or a welcome page).


Joins the conference specified by the given JitsiMeetConferenceOptions.


Leaves the currently active conference. If the welcome page is enabled it willgo back to it, otherwise a black window will be shown.


Releases all resources associated with this view. This method MUST be calledwhen the Activity holding this view is going to be destroyed, usually in theonDestroy() method.


Returns the JitsiMeetViewListener instance attached to the view.


Sets the given listener (class implementing the JitsiMeetViewListenerinterface) on the view.


This object encapsulates all the options that can be tweaked when joininga conference.


See the JitsiMeetConferenceOptions implementation for all available options.


This class handles the interaction between JitsiMeetView and its enclosingActivity. Generally this shouldn't be consumed by users, because they'd beusing JitsiMeetActivity instead, which is already completely integrated.

All its methods are static.



Helper method to handle results of auxiliary activities launched by the SDK.Should be called from the activity method of the same name.


Helper method which should be called from the activity's onBackPressed method.If this function returns true, it means the action was handled and thus noextra processing is required; otherwise the app should call the parent'sonBackPressed method.


Helper method which should be called from the activity's onDestroy method.


Helper method which should be called from the activity's onResume or onStopmethod.


Helper method which should be called from the activity's onSstop method.


Helper method for integrating the deep linking functionality. If your app'sactivity is launched in 'singleTask' mode this method should be called from theactivity's onNewIntent method.


Helper method to handle permission requests inside the SDK. It should be calledfrom the activity method of the same name.


Helper method for integrating automatic Picture-in-Picture. It should be calledfrom the activity's onUserLeaveHint method.

This is a static method.

JitsiMeetViewListener (deprecated - use Listening for broadcasted events instead)

JitsiMeetViewListener provides an interface apps can implement to listen tothe state of the Jitsi Meet conference displayed in a JitsiMeetView.


Called when a conference was joined.

The dataMap contains a 'url' key with the conference URL.


Called when a conference was terminated either by user choice or due to afailure.

The dataMap contains an 'error' key with the error and a 'url' keywith the conference URL. If the conference finished gracefully no errorkey will be present.


Called before a conference is joined.

The dataMap contains a 'url' key with the conference URL.

Listening for broadcasted events

The SDK broadcasts several events that the users can listen for.

Please see JitsiMeetActivity, which registers for all the events and can serve as an example.

Supported events


Broadcasted when a conference was joined.The data HashMap contains a url key with the conference URL.


Broadcasted when the active conference ends, be it because of user choice orbecause of a failure.The data HashMap contains an error key with the error and a url keywith the conference URL. If the conference finished gracefully no errorkey will be present.


Broadcasted before a conference is joined.The data HashMap contains a url key with the conference URL.


Broadcasted when audioMuted state changed.The data HashMap contains a muted key with state of the audioMuted for the localParticipant.


Broadcasted when a participant has joined the conference.The data HashMap contains information of the participant that has joined.Depending of whether the participant is the local one or not, some of them arepresent/missing.isLocalemailnameparticipantId


Broadcasted when a participant has joined the conference.The data HashMap contains information of the participant that has left.Depending of whether the participant is the local one or not, some of them arepresent/missing.isLocalemailnameparticipantId


Broadcasted when an endpoint text message is received.The data HashMap contains a senderId key with the participantId of the sender and a message key with the content.

Broadcasting Actions

The SDK listens for broadcasted actions from the users and reacts accordingly.

The intents can be build manually (as shown above) or through the methods in BroadcastIntentHelper.

Please see JitsiMeetOngoingConferenceService for more examples of sending actions.

Supported actions


Sets the state of the localParticipant audio muted according to the muted parameter.Expects a muted key on the intent extra with a boolean value.


Jitsi Custom Backgrounds

The localParticipant leaves the current conference.Does not expect any extra value.

Jitsi Customization


Sends a messaage via the data channel to one particular participant or to all of them.Expects a to key on the intent extra with the id of the participant to which the messaageis meant and a message key with a string value, the actual content of the message.If the to key is not present or it's value is empty, the message will be sentto all the participants in the conference.

In order to get the participantId, the PARTICIPANT_JOINED event should be listened for,which data includes the id and this should be stored somehow.

ProGuard rules

Jitsi Costo

When using the SDK on a project some proguard rules have to be added in orderto avoid necessary code being stripped. Add the following to your project'srules file: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/android/app/proguard-rules.pro


JitsiMeetView will automatically adjust its UI when presented in aPicture-in-Picture style scenario, in a rectangle too small to accommodate its'full' UI.

Dropbox integration
