Is this a known bug and if not, where do I report it?
I had noticed previously, when Google Chrome bumped up to version 83 that meet.jit.si stopped working properly on various Linux desktop systems (Ubuntu, Debian GNU/Linux). In particular Google Chrome would cause the audio to come in AFTER the video. I could see someone clap and then count to three before hearing the sound! Around the same time, perhaps relatedly, the Chromebook version of Chrome appeared to be crashing with Jitsi
My workaround had been to use Chromium 80 on the GNU/Linux side and the Jitsi Meet app on the Chromebooks. That’s been great.
For security reasons, I recently upgraded to Chromium 83 on GNU/Linux and found that it too fails to run Jitsi: in fact, except occasional blips, it wasn’t even able to send or receive audio or video.
Chromium 83 outputs to stderr a lot of messages about TURN that Chromium 80 does not. Perhaps there is a bug in the UNIX implementation of Chromium’s tunneling or WebRTC? (I say “UNIX” because I know one Jitsi user on MacOS who had the bizarre audio after video latency problem with Google Chrome and switched to Firefox which worked fine).
The bug seems to be completely repeatable in tests I did between myself and one other person, both running the current stable version of Debian GNU/Linux and connecting over meet.jit.si.
- Chromium 80 to Chromium 80 works beautifully with meet.jit.si
- Google Chrome 83 to Google Chrome 83, the audio came after the video.
- Google Chrome 83 to Chromium 80, the audio came after the video.
- Chromium 83 to anything can neither send nor receive data
For reference, the exact versions being tested were:
$ google-chrome --version Google Chrome 83.0.4103.116 $ chromium --version Chromium 83.0.4103.116 Chromium 80.0.3987.162
The error message Chromium 83 is spewing (that Cr-80 doesn’t) are of this form:
[13304:39:0702/180335.347775:ERROR:stun_port.cc(308)] Port[b80c7500:audio:1:0:local:Net[wlan0:192.168.1.x/24:Wifi:id=1]]: UDP send of 258 bytes failed with error 11 [13304:39:0702/180335.655763:ERROR:stun_port.cc(308)] Port[b80c7500:audio:1:0:local:Net[wlan0:192.168.1.x/24:Wifi:id=1]]: UDP send of 258 bytes failed with error 11 [13304:39:0702/180335.656453:ERROR:stun_port.cc(308)] Port[b80c7500:audio:1:0:local:Net[wlan0:192.168.1.x/24:Wifi:id=1]]: UDP send of 258 bytes failed with error 11
Is this a known and reported bug? It’s clearly a bug in Chromium, but since it hasn’t been fixed, it seems only Jitsi is triggering it. Is there any workaround?
