      Uploadcare is mostly remote team and we're using video conferencing all the time both for internal team meetings and for external sales, support, interview, etc. calls. I think we've tried every solution there is on the market before we've decided to stop with Zoom.

      Tools just plainly don't work (Skype), are painful to install for external participants (Webex and other "enterprise" solutions) can't properly handle 10+ participants calls (Google Hangouts Chat).

      Zoom just works. It has all required features and even handles bad connections very graciously. One of the best tool decisions we've ever made :)

      I want to host an online Jeopardy game with less than 30 participants. During each round of the game, I'll stream some videos. The point is to gather friends together to play the Jeopardy game and watch random stuff. Please let me know if there's a more suitable platform other than Discord and Zoom. Thanks, everyone!

            Looking for the pros and cons for a tool we can use best for cross-team collaboration (software development). Has anyone compared Google Hangouts Chat with Microsoft Teams? What were the advantages of either??

            We use Microsoft Teams as our primary workplace collaboration tool. It enables our team to work remotely and still collaborate on projects - with integration to JIRA and Confluence, the tool enables us to create War Rooms when problems occur and also provides information-sharing capabilities. Replaced HipChat.

            Hi, Stackshare community, I plan to build an app where people can go live, and users can watch him, 1 to many, follow each other, and text.

            I am expecting a huge number of users to use the app in the first month (100k+)

            I made the UX/UI design, and my designer asked me to find a developer.

            I want your advice. What server is the best for video quality and fast text messages (like uplive, bigo)?

            Ex. Agora, Twilio, Amazon Chime, Aws, or fiberbass

            I need for both operating systems, (ios, android). Do you recommend Flutter?

            • I have AWS server in my country (Bahrain), and 80% of the audience are from the same area. Does it help in the video quality between the audience?

            Thank you for this helpful website.

            Hello,

            My app will be a live streaming app (like tango, BigoLive) An app developer asked me to choose a tech stack and a team. expected auditions from (Bahrain-KSA-UAE-Kuwait-Oman)

            200 (broadcaster) at a time (minimum) (for 12 hours a day);10K watching the 200 (like 50 to 500) each live.

            What servers are the best to use and give smooth high quality like Bigolive? For live streaming, and texting, and everything.

            Which one is the best combination for my app? (Firebase, AWS, Twilio. Agora)

            Thanks

            Sentry has been essential to our development approach. Nobody likes errors or apps that crash. We use Sentry heavily during Node.js and React development. Our developers are able to see error reports, crashes, user's browsers, and more, all in one place. Sentry also seamlessly integrates with Asana, Slack, and GitHub.

            Using Screenhero via Slack was getting to be pretty horrible. Video and sound quality was often times pretty bad and worst of all the service just wasn't reliable. We all had high hopes when the acquisition went through but ultimately, the product just didn't live up to expectations. We ended up trying Zoom after I had heard about it from some friends at other companies. We noticed the video/sound quality was better, and more importantly it was super reliable. The Slack integration was awesome (just type /zoom and it starts a call)

            You can schedule recurring calls which is helpful. There's a G Suite (Google Calendar) integration which lets you add a Zoom call (w/dial in info + link to web/mobile) with the click of a button.

            Meeting recordings (video and audio) are really nice, you get recordings stored in the cloud on the higher tier plans. One of our engineers, Jerome, actually built a cool little Slack integration using the Slack API and Zoom API so that every time a recording is processed, a link gets posted to the "event-recordings" channel. The iOS app is great too!
