webrtcHacks - Can an Open Source SFU Survive Acquisition? Q&A with Jitsi & Atlassian HipChat

Jitsi's Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU) is one of the most popular projects for enabling multi-party video in WebRTC. Jitsi was acquired by Atlassian and I was wondering how the project was going under the new ownership. I asked Jitsi founder, Emil Ivov a number of questions:

  • What's new in the SFU world?
  • Is the Jitsi project going to continue?
  • What happens when an open source project get acquired?
  • Why the recent licensing change?
