Integrates with Jitsi, Etherpad, BigBlueButton, Matterbridge, Nextcloud Talk. Can scale up to hundreds of thousands of users as you can see in their public instance.
  • Etherpad Lite - Collaborative documentation platform, which can integrate via the Ownpad app. Very easy to use and includes full chat integration. Fully customizable and integrates into most open source projects: Jitsi, Matrix, Discourse,, etc.

I’ll add that Kodi’s ability to stream media from a WebDAV server works very well with Nextcloud. My family regularly streams media stored in group folders this way, and it works remarkably well considering WebDAV is known for performance and compatibility issues.
