Chromium doesn't work on meet.jit.si

The chromium tab fails with the following message when the camera is enabled on meet.jit.si

Aw, Snap!
Something went wrong while displaying this webpage.
Error code: 11

Client:

  • Chromium 90.0.4430.212 on Debian 11 Bullseye desktop
  • Incognito mode with clear cache

To reproduce:

  • Connect to the same meeting room using 2 or more tabs with disabled camera
  • enable the camera after the meeting is started

Notes:

  • firefox works on the same client
  • when there is one firefox client in the same meeting room, chromium doesn’t fail
  • I cannot reproduce the same issue on my own server which hosts the latest stable jitsi
  • I didn’t have this issue last week

Seems like it might be version-related. Chromium 88 works on MacOS. So does Chromium 97.

Not using Debian myself, I can’t test easily, I downloaded chrome 90.0.4430 from here (it may not match exactly the build). I could not reproduce on meet.jit.si (or on my test server using unstable 6654)

This sounds like the vp9 issue that was fixed in 94 version, if I remember correctly.

Seems correct. Now I can reproduce the same issue in my own setup too after changing the video codec

videoQuality: {
  preferredCodec: 'VP9'
},

I switched to ungoogled-chromium as a quick fix
