Additional notes

Why use XMPP? The nice thing about XMPP is that it’s an open standard, like e-mail. While Facebook and Google may shut off or close their chat services, there’s no one big corporation in charge of XMPP so a similar thing cannot happen. Even if DuckDuckGo were to close their XMPP service, it would simply be a matter of moving to a different provider.

  1. Could we have a tutorial on a video call?
    It seems that jitsi does not offer this option, or does it?
