Jitsi Meet is a very popular open source video conferencing engine.
If you are using it, then the script below is a great starting point.
There is a “Jitsi example” script in any account created on testRTC. It is used as a sample and starting point for those who are evaluating our service.
The script itself creates a random room on meet.jit.si and then enters that room. If you use the service manually, it ends up looking something like this:
That blue “Join meeting” button? It usually doesn’t exist if you install and host your own Jitsi server “out of the box”. In such a case, make sure to comment out the following lines from the test script code shared at the end of this article:
Why comment them out? Because these wait for the “Join meeting” button to appear and then click it. If you don’t have that in your Jitsi service, then the test script will fail on it, waiting for a button that will never appear on screen.
Using the test script
In testRTC, create a new test script:
- Copy the code from the bottom of this article to your test script (or use the existing sample in your account)
- Decide the number of probes you want to use
- 2 Concurrent probes will be good starting point
- Set the Session size to the number of concurrent probes for this sample
- Replace the Service URL of the script with the URL where your Jitsi Meet server is installed
Run the script. It does everything for you.
If you want, you can join the same room from your browser once you see the URL in the progress messages of the test.
