Need to connect?

If you have problems connecting to Jitsi through your browser, try the AppImage (for Linux only). It's a single stand-alone file that contains everything needed and doesn't install or make changes to your computer other than the usual config settings. Simply make the AppImage file executable and run it. Quick and easy, plus it will be automatically replaced with new versions as they become available, so you'll always be using the latest.

Jitsi applications are located here...

Linux (.deb), Linux (.AppImage), Windows (.exe) and MAC (.dmg)...

Links to the Mobile apps for Apple and Android are here...

Helpful hints:
press ? to list quick shortcuts
press M (mute) to toggle the microphone
press V (video) to toggle the camera
press C (chat) to open the chat window
press Space for 'Push-to-Talk' mode so mic only works when the Space is held down; press M to reset to normal mode

Best Practices:
- Remember to enter a user name at the prompt when launching Jitsi
- Please Mute your microphone (M on the keyboard )when you're not speaking
