Just stumbled across this odd behaviour on my deployment, and can repro in meet.jit.si and alpha.jitsi.net
Steps to repro:
- On prejoin page, click settings
- Select “More” tab and uncheck “Enable pre meeting screen”
- Click “OK”
Settings modal and prejoin screen dismissed prematurely, and it looks as though you have joined the meeting (filmstrip, toolbar, headings all visible) but not really – you don’t see anyone in the meeting, and nobody sees you. Toolbar buttons and video doesn’t work.
Only way to recover is to reload the page.
This is a very confusing behaviour for users and they could be hanging around for a while waiting for others to join.
What I expected:
Modal dismissed and still on prejoin page, and can join meeting as usual. No prejoin page on next visit unless re-enabled.
Is this a known issue? Should I raise issue on Github?
