Third-Party builds

Download On Flathub


For macOS user, you can install the application using the following command:

brew install --cask jitsi-meet

Using it with your own Jitsi Meet installation

The following additional HTTP headers are known to break the Electron App:

Content-Security-Policy "frame-ancestors [looks like any value is bad]";
X-Frame-Options "DENY";

A working Content Security Policy looks like that:

Content-Security-Policy "img-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline' data:; style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'; font-src 'self'; object-src 'none'; base-uri 'self'; form-action 'none';";


If you want to hack on this project, here is how you do it.

Show building instructions

Installing dependencies

Install Node.js 12 first (or if you use nvm, switch to Node.js 12 by running nvm use).

Extra dependencies for Windows
npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
npm config set msvs_version 2017
Extra dependencies for GNU/Linux

X11, PNG and zlib development packages are necessary. On Debian-like systems then can be installed as follows:

sudo apt install libx11-dev zlib1g-dev libpng-dev libxtst-dev

Install all required packages:

npm install

Starting in development mode

npm start

The debugger tools are available when running in dev mode and can be activated with keyboard shortcuts as defined here https://github.com/sindresorhus/electron-debug#features.

It can also be displayed automatically from the SHOW_DEV_TOOLS environment variable such as:

SHOW_DEV_TOOLS=true npm start

or from the application --show-dev-tools command line flag.

Building the production distribution

npm run dist

Working with jitsi-meet-electron-utils

jitsi-meet-electron-utils is a helper package which implements many features such as remote control and the always-on-top window. If new features are to be added / tested, running with a local version of these utils is very handy, here is how to do that.

By default the jitsi-meet-electron-utils is build from its git repository sources. The default dependency path in package.json is:

"jitsi-meet-electron-utils": "jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron-utils"

To work with local copy you must change the path to:

"jitsi-meet-electron-utils": "file:///Users/name/jitsi-meet-electron-utils-copy",

To build the project you must force it to take the sources as npm update will not do it.

npm install jitsi-meet-electron-utils --force

NOTE: Also check the jitsi-meet-electron-utils README to see how to configure your environment.

Known issues


A warning will show up mentioning the app is unsigned upon first install. This is expected.


On macOS Catalina a warning will be displayed on first install. The app won't open unless "open" is pressed. This dialog is only shown once. Builtin auto-updates are not yet handled in macOS due to unsigned build.


There is a known issue which prevents the app from starting on some Linux distributions: #231

If after downloading it, you can't execute the file directly, try running chmod u+x ./jitsi-meet-x86_64.AppImage

The workaround for now is to launch the app like so: ./jitsi-meet-x86_64.AppImage --no-sandbox

NOTE for old GNU/Linux distributions

You might get the following error:

FATAL:nss_util.cc(632)] NSS_VersionCheck("3.26") failed. NSS >= 3.26 is required.
Please upgrade to the latest NSS, and if you still get this error, contact your
distribution maintainer.

If you do, please install NSS (example for Debian / Ubuntu):

sudo apt-get install libnss3
