@praveen didn't the online free software camp last year speak more about #BigBlueButton ? Even the #LibrePlanet 2020 write-up mentioned that they will try BBB next instead of Jitsi+gstreamer+icecast (wonder what they did for 2021). FSF page lists BBB as reliable.

BBB might be particularly relevant as a CoVID opportunity. Some of the teaching community switching to it for classes might convince students' parents too to switch to it for communication.

BBB and Jitsi both have its pros and cons. BBB needs a more powerful server, can handle more users and has more features. Jitsi server requirement is lesser with more load on clients. Jitsi is more resilient with connection breaks but BBB needs a steady connection. We can choose any based on our requirement.

@praveen @wyatwerp if you do not want to host yourself, our non-profit is offering spontaneous meetings without registrations as well as accounts for planned meetings for free (funded by donations).

Thanks for offering this. Consider adding it to list of public BBB instances maintained by @Framasoft at so more people can find it easily.
