--- Comment #8 from Alain D D Williams <addw at phcomp.co.uk> ---
I would strongly recommend using meet.jit.si -- it just works and there is
little effort in setting up a meeting.

A group of us have been using it weekly (almost) since lock down in the UK (mid
March). You need a machine with 4GB RAM**. Meetings generally 6-10 people, been
up to 12 - no problems.

No software needs to be downloaded, just use a web browser. No need to
login/register. Joining a meeting can be password protected (if you want). The
only downside compared to Zoom is there is not a dial-up (ie 'phone) option.

You can put it on your own machine. I am working with a company who have done
it. Installed on a Debian machine (I tried a couple of CentOS releases ... gave
up). However to get it working as we wanted has taken someone a lot of time. It
is a huge Java application.

Summary: just use meet.jit.si

** 4GB - yes. I was running it from my laptop (2GB Linux Mint, Firefox) and it
kind of worked if I killed off lots of other processes, reduced video quality
(or better switch it off - audio only) - but very often I sounded like a Dalek
to others.

I was unable to get a web-cam ... then my son found one in a supermarket, so I
was able to use on my desktop (32 GB RAM, CentOS 6) and it was a completely
different experience - vastly better.

My desktop is also wired via UTP (cable) to my router, not Wifi -- but I do not
believe that that was the issue.
