- You can use the Jitsi Meet video conferencing platform embedded in Rocket.Chat. The Jitsi Meet project (Jitsi Video Bridge) is a tried and true bandwidth-efficient WebRTC compatible SFU (server-based) solution from our gracious FOSS partner, Jitsi.
I setup Jitsi via the debian install guide, everything seems to work fine. On the same machine I’m running a Rocket.Chat server. Now what I want to accomplish is to make only my Rocket.Chat users being able to create a Jitsi conference.
It is possible to configure audio-video conferences, as Rocket.Chat integrates with the external Jitsi.Meet service. When you make an audio-video call, a conference is created in Jitsi.Meet and a message with a link is shared in your room. Jitsi is one of many services that Rocket.Chat can be integrated with.
So I think JWT auth is the way to go for me here…? But I’m very unsure which guide I need to follow. In the Rocket.Chat Jitsi settings you can specify the jitsi domain, which works fine without authentication. There’s also the option to enable JWT, and fields for “application ID (iss)” and “application secret”. As I never heard about JWT before, could somebody please point me to the right direction how to set this up properly?
