We would like to develop a feature for our application, that allows our users (macOS, Windows or web applications) to Video-Call other people (remote healthcare) and are looking for an API to do so.

Since we're Europe-Based (GDPR) we would like to either self-host it, or have the guarantee, that only EU-Servers are used.

I have looked into TokBox and many others. From the functionality, tokbox would be perfect, but as far as I read their documentation, we cannot enforce European servers to be used.

Are there any suggestions from people who developed something like this?


You may want to look at BigBlueButton https://bigbluebutton.org/ . Both free and Free, there is commercial support from multiple vendors (not sure on locations/GDPR stuff) or you can self-host. Designed for education, it works really well both stand alone self hosted and as integrated and commercially supported by the LMS I was the administrator of for the past 6 years.

When I used it stand alone (10 years ago) the downside was that there was no included interface for creating "rooms" or "meetings", authentication, etc.

What it did have was a very nice and well written API that made doing all of that trivial.

  • thank you for your suggestion! I will take a look at it. What do you think of Jitsi? – Luchspeter Apr 19 '19 at 6:48
