Hi,

Has anyone successfully installed OpenVidu on a WebFaction shared server account?

In these troubled COVID-19 times where video conferencing is being encouraged, might this be a useful app to add to the applications available for "one-click" install on WebFaction?

I note that they have done this on AWS already.

I'm hoping to install this so I don't have to go to my elderly Father's house to install Skype or whatever on his computer so our Family can keep in touch with him. OpenVidu looks like a viable, OpenSource alternative that doesn't need to be installed on Clients.

Cheers,

From a quick look at both OpenVidu's and its dependancy Kurento Media Server documentations, it appears they only work on either an Ubuntu based server or through Docker, which makes it incompatible with our services. They probably need root access too.

Even if the above requirements were met, being a Java application that processes and transmits video, it needs at a minimum 8GB of RAM, which is only possible on our higher tier plans, starting from $60 per month.
