erlyvideo [1] is your friend. As far as I know for simple "conferencing"
current open source edition of erlyvideo is more than enough. If you need
something more advanced - you better talk to maintainers of erlyvideo.


>Is it a good idea to use erlang based media server instead of a media
server written in C++ like rtmpd?

Depends of what you exactly need, but there are no disadvantages in Erland
implementation compare to C++. Actually there are many serious advantages
which comes from Erlang.

Moreover, it is very hard to give you good advice because you didn't
mention your requirements. You also can have a look on BigBlue Button [2].
Maybe BigBlueButton will do work for you?
