We recently came across this picture of a drawing by Richard Alam made during a presentation on the architecture of BigBlueButton in 2008.
I only ran into a couple problems (audio application freeswitch didn’t install correctly) but the documentation wiki was very helpful in getting those problems resolved. Overall the support resources are excellent.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to those responsible for BBB … in setting up a brand new server … I ran into a couple problems. In assisting me, Fred remoted into my Ubuntu server found the issues and had me up and running within 15 minutes….as advertised!
Therefore, if you are having folks question you why BBB and what type of support will be provided they will be quite pleased to know I would place Fred and the BBB family up against any franchise in the business!!
Thanks Dean! We care about making sure people are successful when using BigBlueButton.
We’ve been working on improving the audio quality — specifically reducing the lag — in BigBlueButton.
We held a stress test today in which we had 60 sessions connected from around the world and users reported good quality audio.
