Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Currently I am planning an open source project using VOIP over HTML5 websockets which uses HTML Media Capture which only released 2 months ago.

My question is, am I allowed to ask people who are interested to join this project on StackOverflow, or should I used a paid option at careers.stackoverflow?

Info about the project on StackOverflow: implementing voip using html5 websockets.

Given that you're trying to solicit support for a Open Source project, I think you should consider this instead: Open Source Advertising - Sidebar - 2H 2010.

Create a simple advert for your project, then wait for it to get shown on SO as an advert. Other than that, I don't think there are any good option for getting help with your project.

It's certainly not a technical question with correct answers, so it's not an SO question. If you want to pay for a Careers listing, I suppose that's fine, but I suspect there are better ways to go about recruitment.

I would consider any type of solicitation (whether for volunteers, open source, employment, contributions, etc) as off-topic and should be flagged as spam.

Yi Jiang's and Popular Demand's answer provides reasonable alternatives to accomplish your task.
