@paoloredaelli That warms my heart to read. Sadly, some proprietary software can be hard to avoid, for school or for work. But every small step is important!
@hider the client side is not that bad. Firefox seems to be quite capable of handling WebEx and Google Meet. I was able to fully use WebEx at polimi and my daughter Meet. The server side is another matter entirely, but I suspect that there are substantial hardware costs, otherwise Jitsi and MultiParty Meeting should have been able to handle the load of last spring lockdown. Jitsi also tends to put a lot of burden on the client: smartphones tends to get hot during Jitsi meet
@hider if Firefox weren't compiled with binary blobs. But I disabled DRM on my Firefox and it handled WebEx correctly. We must thanks public standards like WebRTC
@paoloredaelli Maybe you've heard of Librewolf? It's basically a (more) libre version of Firefox. I haven't tried it that much myself, but it seems to work fine.
@paoloredaelli Yes, I've noticed my connection speed have been quite slow at times, but it mostly works. And I guess one "problem" with decentralized services, for instance for video calls, is that they can be demanding for the devices to handle.
