jitsi certainly looks intriguing.
Free.  Open source.

Typical meeting features include:
change presenter
record to standard format
chat

Main site:  https://jitsi.org/

There are two ways to use jitsi.

Option 1:  jitsi runs on their server.
This page lets a person start a meeting and invite people.
https://meet.jit.si/

Option 2:  Install the jitsi code on your server.
They claim this is doable in an hour.
How to install:  https://jitsi.org/blog/make-it-live-with-video/

I expect we will give this one a test drive

I'm the farthest removed from being an expert as there is in this field.  That being said, I did participate in the hi-lakers meeting last week and it was via Amazon "chime".  It worked great, people could have their faces and/or voice active or not, there was a chat window if you wanted to type stuff, and you could see the slideshow on the screen and hear the presenter talk very clearly.

You didn't have to have the software or app installed, you could participate via a web browser and it worked great for me.  Maybe look into it ?

Ah, now this cartoon makes sense...I wondered for quite a while what this was all about. Larson is by far my favorite cartoonist, but some of his work causes me to scratch my head a bit.
