Jitsi vs Daily

How do Jitsi and Daily compare? And what does Video SDK offer?

Jitsi

Jitsi is a free and open-source platform that simplifies video conferencing. It offers a user-friendly experience without the need for downloads or plugins, making it an excellent option for those seeking a straightforward live video solution without significant investment.

Daily

Daily allows developers to create real-time video and audio calls that operate directly in the web browser. The SDK simplifies the process of handling common backend video call functionalities across various platforms, providing sensible defaults for a smoother development experience.

How Video SDK make a difference

If you are searching for a reliable live video conference SDK, you have probably heard about Daily and Jitsi. Both platforms are nice, offering SDKs for embedding live video calling and related features into your application.

While Daily and Jitsi can deliver somewhat reliable audio/video conferencing performances, achieving this often requires writing extensive lines of code. Additionally, using separate SDKs may mean you won't have access to all the features you need in one place.

But with Video SDK, the game changes. It offers excellent audio/video performance and all the collaborative features you need, all wrapped up in a single SDK. Moreover, Video SDK requires minimal coding, allowing you to get your application up and running in just a few minutes.

This page compares Jitsi vs Daily and highlights why you should consider Video SDK as a promising alternative for your live video communication needs.
