Using video apps with Deltachat

I’ve successfully installed and it works well my question is how to setup and enable video and audio chat
apps to use in deltachat, any and all help and information regarding these issues is greatly appreciated.

You have to activate video chats in the settings and then select video chat in the bottom left corner of the chat using the paper clip.
Then a video chat invitation will be sent. DC uses Jitsi. This has the advantage that it is decentralized like DC and you can send invitations by email. In addition, Jitsi does not require an app, but can run via the browser. It is therefore possible to start a conference with anyone, even if this person does not use DC. A Jitsi app exists, but is not absolutely necessary.
There are many Jitsi servers. The official one is preset.
After confirming in DC or after clicking the link in the invitation email, the browser or app opens and the video conference begins.

But make sure the used browsers are up to date or install the app. jitsi won’t work correctly in ancient browser versions.
