Jitsi Meet Announcement


We are happy to introduce a new feature to the EyeTV Forum: video conferences for our users through

Jitsi Meet is an Open Source WebRTC JavaScript application that uses Jitsi Videobridge to provide high scalable video conferences.

All of Our Major Topics will receive their own conference room.

The basic idea/concept is to give our EyeTV Userbase a chance to get use of the advanced feature to help each other or get help by demonstration of our support teams by either demonstration or screen sharing. It is much easier to help each other and solve by directly communicating with each other.

This service is free for all, we are still in a testing stage for this new support service, so please apologize if sometimes the Video Conferencing System is not working perfectly. On our own, we are planning the first EyeTV User Conference, mainly as an Intro to this new service, and then followed by the main topics out of the forum Eyetv 4 (64-bit), EPG, ...

These Conference Rooms are hosted at our servers at Geniatech Europe GmbH. As it is a piece of Open Source Software, all its details, including the code, can be found here:
