COMPARISON

TokBox vs Jitsi

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

Overview

TokBox and Jitsi are the leading live video platforms. TokBox is better suited to enterprise use cases, while Jitsi is ideal for early-stage startups or developers searching for an inexpensive video conferencing SDK. However, neither offer features such as excellent support, automated user network management, or collaborative features.

Dyte changes that. Dyte's lightweight SDK includes video/voice calls, live streams, and collaborative features and can be integrated into your app within 10 minutes.

This page outlines the pros and cons and pits TokBox vs Jitsi; it also explains why you should consider Dyte when making an informed decision.
