Hi Arthur,

probably you have already set it up meanwhile, but if not and you are 
using pot (pkg install pot) as jail management tool:

I have uploaded a pot flavour/image on that should allow 
creating a running jitsi-meet instance in a jail within a few minutes.

This is all in its early stages though, so if it doesn't, feel free to 
complain :)

Best regards
