COMPARISON

Zoom vs Jitsi

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

Overview

Zoom and Jitsi are both viable Video SDKs. Zoom is more reliable and scaleable, whereas Jitsi is an open-source platform with a larger developer community.

Both SDKs lack collaborative features like in-built collaboration tools, low-code UI builder, and 24/7 support.

Dyte changes that. Dyte provides reliable and jitter-free video, low code easy permission control, and plugin support, making creating immersive live video experiences simple. 

Other than pitting Zoom vs Jitsi, this page explains why Dyte is worth considering when constructing your live events.

LIVE VIDEO SERVICES

So what are these?

What is Zoom?

Zoom Video SDK offers the same reliable video conferencing experience as the original Client but with greater flexibility. It includes a variety of services, such as audio, video, chat, screen sharing, data streams, server-side APIs, and webhooks

What is Jitsi?

Jitsi is a free, open-source platform for hassle-free video conferencing. No downloads or plugins are needed, and it's perfect for those just starting out with video chat but not ready to make a major investment.
