- Jitsi-Meet for Synology Version: 1.1. JitsiMeet: more secure, flexible and free video conferencing based on WebRTC deployed on Synology via Docker. It extends the official docker-jitsi-meet packages by GUI for maintaining settings and local authentication without the need for ssh-cmdline.
- So to be 100% clear: - your reverse HTTP proxy is the one managed by DSM on your Synology - on the forward you've setup towards the jitsi container on the reverse proxy, you've activated the 'custom headers' and added the 2 automatic ones that are proposed when you click on websocket under the arrow next to 'create'.
- Jitsi and Docker Overview. Jitsi Meet is an open source video conferencing service solution providing fully encrypted and secure high quality and audio without subscription or the need to create an account. The solution can either be installed natively on Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (18.04 LTS) and Debian Buster.Another way to install it, is using a containerized application running on Docker.
You should be able to follow the instructions here to configure and run Jitsi using docker-compose in Synology CLI like on a normal Linux server. Just make sure the ports defined in the.env-file are unused to avoid conflict with Synology ports. Anyone of you successfully managed to install Jitsi Meet server on a synology NAS? Through the Synology “app store”, it is possible to run Docker, but not Docker Compose. I am not a Docker expert and therefore would be looking at some feedback from experts here to identify if it is even possible to run jitsi on a Synology NAS?
This document describes the installation of jitsi-meet on a raspberry pi 4. I had lots of trouble combining all those steps into one tutorial. Let me know if you run into problems. The following sites helped me creating this tutorial:

Before we start this guide let's make some assumptions: Tetris full screen.
- IP: 10.14.70.14
- Hostname: jitsi-meet
- FQDN: meet.something.com
As I am running my jitsi instance behind a Synology (read: nginx) reverse proxy I will not cara about certificates. All the information you need about them can be found here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md

Jitsi Meet Installation
