Jitsi vs Mediasoup: What are the differences?

Developers describe Jitsi as "Multi-platform open-source video conferencing". Jitsi is a set of open-source projects that allows you to easily build and deploy secure videoconferencing solutions. At the heart of Jitsi are Jitsi Videobridge and Jitsi Meet, which let you have conferences on the internet, while other projects in the community enable other features such as audio, dial-in, recording, and simulcasting. On the other hand, Mediasoup is detailed as "Cutting Edge WebRTC Video Conferencing". Mediasoup and its client side libraries provide a super low level API. They are intended to enable different use cases and scenarios, without any constraint or assumption. Some of these use cases are: Group video chat applications, One-to-many (or few-to-many) broadcasting applications in real-time, and RTP streaming.

Jitsi and Mediasoup can be primarily classified as "Web and Video Conferencing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Jitsi are:

  • Web, Android, iOS, React-native, and Electron apps
  • Ubuntu and Debian Packages install in minutes
  • Customize with config files or change the code

On the other hand, Mediasoup provides the following key features:

  • Simulcast and SVC support
  • Congestion control
  • Sender and receiver bandwidth estimation with spatial/temporal layers distribution algorithm
