  8. As the creator of the video call URL, you control the sharing of the URL and a password, if you choose to use a password

  • Free iOS app is here.

The app is similar to the desktop version. You can now start free video chats directly from the app in your mobile device, or follow the below steps to start a call using the Fastmetrics video conferencing platform;

  1. Visit; https://meet.fastmetrics.com/ in your mobile browser
  2. Type in your unique meeting name and click ‘GO’
  3. Click ‘Continue to the app’. This will start your video call in the Jitsi meet app
  4. Use the ‘Invite others’ button to share your audio or video call with others

How many people can I have on a video call or conference?

  • ‘Hard’ limit of 75 call participants is recommended
  • 35 participants is the optimal ‘soft’ limit for a single call, to ensure high quality video
  • It is possible to add more participants than the ‘hard’ limit, if video is switched off for all users (especially for those with slow Internet connections)
  • It is also possible to reach a wider audience using the live stream feature, which will broadcast a call or conference via YouTube

The Jitsi developer community is currently looking into raising the ‘hard’ cap on a single call to 100 participants. A release is expected soon to upgrade this number.

How do I know my video chat or conference is secure? 

Firstly, the Jitsi technology which powers Fastmetrics free video chat and audio calls is fully encrypted end to end. It is highly secure for two person calls to multi-party conference calls. A meeting room only becomes active, after the first call participant joins. Meeting rooms, chat data and speaker stats are all ‘destroyed’ when the last call participant leaves.

Secondly, it is highly recommended to set passwords on your video calls (although optional). It is easy to do though and adds an extra level of security. A password can be added or edited within the ‘information’ or white ‘i’ circle, in the bottom right of the screen call on a desktop or laptop. To do this in the mobile app, click in the ‘More options’ menu. Passwords must be shared by you, with meeting participants.

Finally, only share meeting URLs with required participants. Do not share or advertise meeting room names on public pages, websites, forums or social media channels. Unless you want strangers popping up in your video conferences!

Can I save a meeting for recurring video calls?

Yes. Every meeting created by you, is saved as a meeting name only in your browser @ meet.fastmetrics.com or in the Jitsi meet app. Video and audio are not active in this state. (Only the meeting name is saved, not the call). Additionally, dates and times that calls occurred and duration are also provided. For recurring calls, simply click on the link to reactivate the call, then share the link with participants you want to join.

Tips For Creating Secure Video Meeting Names

Tip 1: This free video call solution offers a random name generator. See it in action automatically in the ‘Start a new meeting’ field. Subsequently, it is not a requirement to create a new meeting name at all to create a call. Just click the blue GO button, after the random generator has completely populated a random meeting name.

Tip 2: If you do want a custom meeting name in the ‘Start a new meeting’ field, use descriptive, longer words. This reduces the chances of an unwanted guests joining your call or video conference. (Especially for large scale organizations or meetings with a lot of interest).

Example 1: https://meet.fastmetrics.com/videocall – very broad. Easy to guess. Unsafe.
Example 2: https://meet.fastmetrics.com/fastmetricsvideocallmaytenth – descriptive. Unique brand name. Safer.
