COMPARISON

Agora vs Jitsi

How do Agora and Jitsi compare? And what does Dyte Video SDK offer?

Overview

Agora and Jitsi are the two most popular video SDKs. Agora is preferred for its reliable product support and higher-quality video, while Jitsi offers an open-source solution with a ton of UI customization. 

Both need you to have an enterprise-class development team, offer inferior support, and are hard to integrate.

Dyte changes that. Dyte is a modern live video SDK that enables developers to add live video, audio calls, streaming, and collaborative features to their applications with ease.

We thoroughly evaluate the advantages and disadvantages by pitting Agora vs Jitsi. Let's begin..
