"ZRTP and the GNU ZRTP implementation provide features to
communication programs to setup of secure audio and video session
without additional infrastructure, server programs, registration, and
alike."

While this doesn't state outright that Jitsi uses ZRTP for video (it
does for voice), I believe it does. From what I read online, the ZRTP
protocol only uses encryption schemes that have
perfect-forward-secrecy, just like OTR does.
