Open Source Video Calls and Chat

Jitsi (previously SIP Communicator) is an audio/video and chat communicator that supports protocols such as SIP, XMPP/Jabber, AIM/ICQ, Windows Live, Yahoo!, Bonjour and many other useful features.

Jitsi is an audio/video Internet phone and instant messenger written in Java. It supports some of the most popular instant messaging and telephony protocols such as SIP, Jabber/XMPP (and hence GoogleTalk), AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo! Messenger, IRC, Bonjour and soon others like IAX.

The development of Jitsi started at the University of Strasbourg, France. Originally the project was known as SIP Communicator. Throughout the years our community has grown to include members and contributors from Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, China, France, Estonia, India, Germany, Japan, Romania, Spain, UK, USA, and others.

Jitsi is based on the OSGi architecture using the Felix implementation from Apache. This makes it very extensible and particularly developer friendly.


The Jitsi FAQ can usually answer most questions. You can also ask on the dev mailing list, or at the irc channel #sip-communicator at irc.freenode.net.

If you would like to help the project or follow its progress, make sure you join our Mailing Lists, or simply peek at the screenshots. Helping us translate it into your native language would be a great way to start your open source adventure!

In addition to its contributors and community, this project owes a lot to its faithful partners.
