Jitsi Videobridge Openfire Plugin

Hi all,


Jitsi Videobridge is an XMPP server component that allows for multiuser video communication. Unlike the expensive dedicated hardware videobridges, Jitsi Videobridge does not mix the video channels into a composite video stream, but only relays the received video channels to all call participants. More info can be found at

Jitsi Videobridge can work either as a standalone component or and as an openfire plugin. The openfire plugin can be downloaded at:


The plugin uses libjitsi ( which, on the other hand, depends on some native libraries for implementing codecs for mixing the audio. Therefore, the plugin is bundled with native libs for each of the supported platforms. At the first run it checks whether those libs are present and, if missing, extracts them under plugin's folder (/var/lib/openfire/plugins/jitsivideobridge/lib/native/;). Then at each subsequent run only java.library.path is modified.


Does this sound ok?
