  • Why is it so expensive to build high-quality software and is there any way around it?
    You'd also have to define what "high-quality video conferencing software" means. Instead of reading random internet strangers' guesses, perhaps take a look at jitsi. Jitsi is a suite of open-source video conferencing tools. If you examine their dev team, look through their commit history, and see what they've built, then that'll give you an idea of how much effort is involved. Source: 9 months ago
