Video communication Otree

#1 by nathalie

Has anyone experience with implementing video communication in oTree?
I haven't found a systematic in when it works and when it doesn't in my tests, and am wondering whether anyone has found a good solution on the implementation already.
Help is very much appreciated!

I too have encountered issues with the default suggestion, especially (i) when UDP is blocked or (ii) at least one participant is behind a NAT.

I've heard good things about embedding a Jitsi room into one's experiment. I haven't yet done it myself though: https://jitsi.org/api/

So perhaps you should try that.

Thank you so much for the suggestion! I'll try that.

Tried it out. So far seems to work very well. But if you want to have calls lasting > 5 minutes, you need to subscribe to one of their (quite costly) consumption plans.
