This article provides a comprehensive comparison of five audio-video SDKs - Agora, Twilio, Jitsi as a Service (JaaS), Zoom Video SDK, and Zoom Meeting SDK. The features examined are organized into core capabilities, interactive features, and audio-video features. The comparison highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each platform in terms of feature availability and ease of integration. Agora, Twilio, and 100ms emerge as solid options for most use cases due to their balanced offerings across all categories. JaaS requires some development effort to set up specific functions, while the Zoom Video SDK is still evolving but offers full customization.
