Thanks to everyone for your kind comments.

I plan on using my own RTMP with nginx for live streaming. I'll use
PeerTube to upload the recordings after the event.

I've been testing my own Jisti Meet instance with a domain I own,
inviting some people, but, sadly, the ones with a cellphone are required
to manually set the domain. That's an extra step that may discourage
people to join us.

I took mumble into consideration, but we require the two speakers to
show their faces and gesticulate with their hands. Sometimes, we share
desktop to show images.
