The best videoconferencing system (even running on a Synology box)

There are many $$$ systems. But there are also super nice systems like Big Blue Button, Apache Open Meeting and Jitsi that are working equally well if you stick to Chrome or Firefox.

I recommend Spreed WebRTC audio/video call and conferencing server. Just run

docker pull spreed/webrtc
docker run --rm --name my-spreed-webrtc -p 8080:8080 -p 8443:8443 \
-v `pwd`:/srv/extra -i -t spreed/webrtc

and you are done. The only issue  – how to route your local IP to the docker container?

sudo route -n add -net  146.x.x.x
sudo route -n delete  146.x.x.x

In the meantime, I managed to get it also on the Synology DS418play but only with a manual installation using the DS216+ ii docker binary according to some helpful comments on the synology forum.

Firefox 66 runs  microphone, webcam and screen sharing without any problem, Chrome 73 needs a plugin for screen sharing.
