On all of the tutorials to setup a Jibri instance for recording, the main part is you need
to switch to a generic kernel in particular
linux-image-extra-virtual - jibri/README.md at master · jitsi/jibri · GitHub
I have found that I can launch an AWS EC2 instance, but can’t follow that guide to install a generic kernel.
sudo apt install linux-image-extra-virtual, then trying to change my /etc/default/grub to use the new kernel, the entire instance will not boot anymore on AWS.
To pick the right kernel, I would grab the menu text from /boot/grub/grub.cfg , and put that in as the GRUB_DEFAULT. Then I would run
sudo update-grub , and then put in what it suggests I put in there instead. So for example I would have something like:
Trying to restart at this point results in a broken server (docs could probably suggest restarting early to avoid losing changes down the track)
If it helps, I’ve been trying this a few times on an T3.small (low res recording works fine), with an Ubuntu 20.04 selected as the base image.
The strange part - this used to be possible earlier this year - and I have one jibri instance working this way! But at some point, it appears new instances can’t do it anymore.
