About BBB, It currently includes MongoDB in it's server software, which
went nonfree a few years ago. You can still run an older version which
is all free software and BBB upstream is looking at ways to switch to a
free database. However, right now, I wouldn't deploy a new instance of
BBB. For simple web based video conference, I'd look at Jitsi Meet.
Other options: GNU Jami, but that requires installing a
client. Nextcloud Talk looks interesting but I haven't tried it yet.
