I’m developing a video chat application using lib-jitsi-meet. It’s all working fine in Firefox, but when it comes to Chrome, it throws the following error in the console.
lib-jitsi-meet.min.js:1 The AudioContext was not allowed to start. It must be resumed (or created) after a user gesture on the page.
The participant can’t use the microphone in the Chrome browser because of this error. I know this is related to the changes in Chrome autoplay policies. I could’ve done something if I’m using the pure web audio API, however, I couldn’t understand what should I do to avoid this in lib-jitsi-meet.
I searched for this error in Jitsi community forums and many other places but didn’t find any helpful answer to circumvent this.
How can I overcome this issue so that video chat participants from the Chrome browser can use their microphones and hear what others are saying? Thank you for all the helpful suggestions.
