[Freeswitch-users] Jitsi + Freeswitch (and general questions about SFU)

It will be a massive project to support SFU.  It would be a hybrid of the 2
not an either/or.  Its all been considered but there is less to gain from
SFU so its not a priority.
Unlike Jitsi, FS would have to actually implement the media side of the
equation and dual support muxing and multi streaming where Jitsi enjoys
only needing to provide signaling between browsers.
FreeSWITCH is better suited to an MCU and we made a specific decision to
focus on that but there might be a slow march towards these other things as
time progresses and interest does or doesn't happen.
