We have tried to push Jitsi forward as a replacement to Skype, notably
with Syrian people. In the first tries we did, it appeared really not
easy to use from Syria, mainly because of the poor bandwidth there which
seemed to prevent video calls to work correctly and NAT issues.

We however haven't had time to dig more in Jitsi settings, and I wonder
if someone had a good URL for documentation/tutorial?

Thank you :)
