Zoom is very popular now, but its frame rate and video and audio bitrates are pretty bad, sending 320 by 180 images at 15 frames per second and a rather low audio bitrate. Skype is better, but it still seems to be transmitting a fairly low video bitrate. However, many of the people who regularly participate in our calls have good-quality connections, with download speeds of hundreds of megabits per second and upload speeds of 10 Mbps or more. Some have symmetric gigabit connections. Obviously, the result of the low bitrate is an image and audio stream that is much less clear than reality, which can also pose problems when sharing music, or showing something with fine details, like a physical document.

Is there an option that has much higher bitrates? Obviously it would have to be capable of scaling down the received bitrate for lower-quality connections.


jitsi.meet videobridge has some better results with higher bitrates.

    Could you please add more info, such as framerate? Thanks!
