I’m a software engineer contributing to Zinc.coop, where we’re working on a product called Convene, which we envision as digital collaboration spaces containing, among other features, video conferencing.
We’ve been hosting our own video infrastructure (using Jitsi) but we’d love to share the costs of operating the video infra with like-minded folks (be it by paying with $$$, with elbow grease, or a mix of both). Seems like Meet.coop could be a good way for us to join forces with others running video conferencing infrastructure. I’m here to explore what is possible.
Right now my two big questions are:
- What would it look like for Zinc to join Meet.coop in a way that lets us build on top of shared video infra? Is that becoming an “operational member”? What would be involved?
- What are the technical possibilities for building on top of BBB? In particular, what does it afford in terms of being able to embed the video chat functionality into other sites / apps? (I browsed the BBB docs but they weren’t immediately illuminating. Happy to get pointers to integration docs, if those exist.)
Who is the right person to contact about this?
