We would like to get some suggestions?
I ran nextcloud on shared hosting, It seems it run fine on two user connection video call. I would like to know any server spec for shared hosting or nextcloud talk
as far as i know you’d need a paid nextcloud subscription to have more than like 3-5 ppl entering a video chat. devs say that a 20user chat would be impossible to realize with php and thus they would exchange a part of the code… the so called high performance backend setup.
It isn’t really a matter of specs or bandwidth. The backend is inefficient. If you want large video calls, you will either need to pay for the proprietary spreed backend, or run another software alongside Nextcloud.
There was a post here recently where some people made an app to integrate BigBlueButton. I haven’t tried it. Also take a look at Jitsi Meet which is surprisingly easy to set up.
Ultimately what seems most likely to happen is the community will integrate a different optional backend for Talk because the basic stuff included can’t handle what you want.
Its seems, to host Nextcloud is not completely open source. Its some kind of freemium. Mostly Nextcloud want user to sign with its provider for hosting and pay montly/yearly subscription for nextcloud application like onllyoffice or etc.
From what I understand @zippy_digital it’s not nextcloud charging the fee but the backend provider charging the fee.
If you would like something different nextcloud is open source and you are free to modify the source code. If you do this please make sure you submit a pull request so the rest of the community can benefit from it.
it is completely open source. but that doesn’t mean anything for additional apps. there is a free version… which comes with limitations. and a premium app with no limitations— that’s not done by nc but by a 3. party.
right at the moment there are discussions and alphaversion of integrations of bigbluebutton and jitsi to be included to nextcloud. search the forum… i think BBB would be ready to release (though you’d need to install your own BBB-server somewhere)
if this isn’t enough, @Paradox551 is right - go and code… every help would be welcome
I believe the understanding is there, that Talk is not of much use outside p2p (one-to-one) communication. At least not in today’s environment when compared to standalone open-source packages like jitsi and bbb…
Frank even expressed interest in making Nextcloud work with bbb as an app…
