itsi is an open source app for videoconferencing and chat. Works with Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android clients.

This is a pre-configured image with pre-configured dependencies. You’ll only need a domain and we provide the scripts for an effortless setup with HTTPS enabled for secure communication with your team.
It is recommended to run this image on a CPU-Optimized VM with at least 4GB of RAM or higher.
Create a VM from the image available in the Marketplace.
Before accessing the fresh VM, add a domain to your project. This is required because most browsers require HTTPS in order to allow you to use the camera and microphone in a website, and it’s not possible to enable HTTPS just with an IP.
It is mandatory to add an A record (i.e. jitsi-example.truevisiongroups.com) pointing to the IP associated with your VM.
Access the console (i.e via ssh by running
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org) and set a new password.
