Zoom vs Jitsi

How do Zoom and Jitsi Compare? And what does VideoSDK offer?

Zoom Video SDK

The Zoom Video SDK provides a reliable video conferencing experience similar to the original Client, but with added flexibility. It encompasses a wide range of services, including audio, video, chat, screen sharing, data streams, server-side APIs, and webhooks. This extensive set of features allows developers to create customized and immersive video communication experiences within their applications.

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.

How VideoSDK make a difference

While considering SDK options, both Zoom and Jitsi are viable choices. Zoom offers greater reliability and scalability, while Jitsi stands out as an open-source platform with a larger developer community.

However, both Zoom and Jitsi lack some modern collaborative features, such as built-in collaboration tools, a low-code UI builder, and 24/7 support.

VideoSDK changes the game by providing reliable and jitter-free video, easy low-code permission control, and plugin support, making it simple to create immersive live video experiences.

This page not only compares Zoom and Jitsi but also highlights why VideoSDK is worth considering while building your live events. With VideoSDK, you can unlock the full potential of your live video experiences and take them to new heights.
