Hi Michael.

Likely not...  We typically get some attendees who have audio or video 
issues, bandwidth issues or something.  Problems are usually not at the 
Jitsi server end, but usually something local to specific users. 
Sometimes, it's related to the web browser.  (I've occasionally had 
weird video output/display issues with Jitsi in Chrome, and have now 
made it a habit to restart Chrome before signing into a Jitsi meeting.) 
Sometimes it's a system-level issue, and the only solution is a reboot.

See above.  Not sure what browser you were using, but my first 
suggestion would be to restart the browser, then try to connect again. 
If the problem persists, try a different browser, then look for hardware 
or OS issues.  (Try other apps to see if the same problem is there, or 
not.  Try system settings, try a reboot, or full power-down and restart.)

Similar to the last couple months, I think. (More or less...)

Yes, we do now accept Interac e-Transfers!  Details can be found here...
