@senfcall why senf? Mustard? I don't get it. 🤔 Lovely initiative!!!

@wendy there is a german saying that's called "seinen senf dazu geben" (adding your mustard). It means somebody shares an opinion in third-party conversation, usually without being asked.

We created Senfcall because we were forced to use unethical videoconference tools, without being asked and wanted to show that there's a different way.

@senfcall hey, we ( @domainepublic @nurpa @constant and more) are working on making #BigBlueButton more available for more Belgian organisations. How do you manage to keep the openness? BBB is quite resource hungry..

@wendy @senfcall @domainepublic @nurpa @constant choose hardware that brings the best concurrent users / server-cost ratio, rent dedicated servers with current AMD Ryzen CPUs at a big datacenter provider like Hetzner, rent lots of dedicated servers, automate everything, use Ansible.

@wendy in production, BBB tends to be a bit less or equally resource hungry than Jitsi, once you set it up with settings that are optimized for your use case.

@basisbit hi, thanks for your answer. Are there examples online for optimal configuration of your #BigBlueButton server? I know there is a thing as a search engine 😉 but as self-hosters it would be great to have some really good example configs, reduce energy use, limit bandwidth and optimisation of speech quality!


@wendy mainly the things that @basisbit said. The best starting point is the documentation, where you find most of the necessary recommendations:
There are also some google groups mailing lists for community support: bigbluebutton.org/support/comm
That's mostly what we are using, basisbit might have further recommendations. For german speakers there is also the -meeting every monday: di.c3voc.de/user:bigbluebutton
