Jupiter Broadcasting Matrix Quick Start Guide

This is a quick guide on how to get started with Matrix chat for the Jupiter Broadcasting shows. It is also in video form here:

Instructions

You will need a client, and you can use a web-based one by going here:
https://app.element.io

  1. If you don’t already have an account:
    1. Choose to “Create Account”
    2. Choose “Advanced” (Other Server)
    3. For the server URL enter:
      https://colony.jupiterbroadcasting.com
      This will be your homeserver, which handles your messages
    4. Enter a username and password, and click “Register”
    5. Choose “Generate a security key”
      This is to keep your one-to-one messages encrypted
  2. Once you are logged into the Element client, you will probably want to set your display name:
    1. Click your user picture at the top, and choose “All Settings”
    2. You can then change your display name and also upload a picture if you want
  3. To join the chat rooms, click the “Explore Rooms” button (it looks like a compass)
  4. Note that if you are on a different homeserver, you may need to “Add a Server” and enter “jupiterbroadcasting.com” as the server to find rooms on.

Other Useful Info

You can install the “Element” app on android from the Play Store or FDroid

Save your key somewhere safe if you want to be able to restore your secret messages.
