Great feature set, like Zoom, but open source, and performs much better than Jitsi

Pros

  • Open source and free forever.
  • Works well.
  • Can be self-hosted.
  • Able to reliably support dozens of participants.
  • Voice relies on Freeswitch, which is a proven reliable SIP server. Voice is stable even if video streams have problems.
  • Can be used by SIP clients to connect voice only.
  • Can be used with or without registration.
  • Can handle multiple moderators, silence or kick people, control screen sharing and whiteboard.

Cons

  • Relies on a pretty outdated version of operating system
  • Cannot control/change video resolution on-the-fly, which may result larger bandwidth use
  • No native mobile app, but the responsive web client works well on mobile, too.
