BlueJeans is "open source" though I
can't offhand find their source code
googling for "bluejeans source". ;)
I've dug around a bit, and also cant find anything to suggest that
they are open sourcing any parts of their solution, or anything
resembling bjn providing development or support for existing open
source technology components.
Their own java classes are using namespace "vc.bjn", and googing that
doesnt lead to anything.
Here is their recent github organisation:
This looks like an older one:
And here is the only use of "vc.bjn" in github, by an employee
Other employees have "operations"-like repos
If the organisation is a credible contributor to open source, I havent
found it yet. I hope that WMF included "open sourciness" in their
product selection criteria & evaluation, so their should be some
document describing how BJN is contributing to open source. It would
be great if that can be shared.
It's being used mostly for larger meetings
because a) it has a larger
for number of participants than Google Hangout
and b) it seems to be more
open than Google Hangout.
Can't answer on if anybody's paying anything as I don't know, but
personally I would hope we are helping to fund their open source
If BNJ isnt actually open source, here is an open source solution that
we could use and help fund as required (e.g. buying their commercial
offerings so that WMF Engineering/Ops doesnt need to support it)
From the FAQ: If you have a session with 20 users and all share their
this is possible) will generate 400 streams
Pretty much sounds like a deal breaker to me. The primary use case of
bluejeans is for meetings where we need a hundred people in the same
channel. The difference with bluejeans is it manages the streams on the
backend and sends just one video stream to each user (afaik).
