First of all: very big thanks for the really great jitsivideobridge plugin, Dele! Great work so far!


But even the good can get better. ;-) Therefor here's my wishlist for newer versions:


  1. Increase stability. The jitsivideobridge plugin is quite new. I'm confident that stability will increase with each new version
  2. Support of other browser like Firefox. On it seems as if newer Firefox versions are WebRTC capable, although I don't know any details of implementation.
  3. Reservation/Scheduled Meeting: more of a long term wish list. Maybe integration with iCal calendaring or such. Currently jitsivideobridge is a system for ad-hoc conferencing, but it would be nice to have something like "let us meet in 3 days in this meeting room!" You can already do this by creating a custom URL like r=testroom, but when another person guesses this s/he could hijack the URL. Using passwords might work, but what happens when I close my browser window?
  4. Support of native Clients like Jitsi. Having a browser capable video conference is great, but of course it would be nice if you could use your already video capable XMPP client as well.
  5. Configurable video image size/bandwidth limits: currently the standard resolution in config.js is "360". Although this is a reasonable setting there might be cases where want to alter this setting without the need to change this setting to higher (=better quality) or lower (=saves bandwidth) settings per conference or even for every connecting user. This might apply to refresh rates as well.
  6. IPv6 support: at the moment config.js says "useIPv6: false, // ipv6 support. use at your own risk". IPv6 is a well established standard today and every application should support it out of the box.


Just some ideas that came to mind. :-)
