I would like to send a link to someone so it starts automatically with screen sharing instead of streaming their webcam. So the person only needs to give permission for screen sharing.
I thought the following would do the trick:
However, this does not seem to work. Can someone help me?
Try removing start with video muted option.
Appears to work if I explicitly set
config.startWithVideoMuted=false, but not if set to true or if option omitted.
Can optionally also add
config.prejoinPageEnabled=false if you want user to go straight into meeting.
I was trying it on Firefox but it appears that does not work. Chrome and Edge do work however.
I can confirm that’s the case –
startScreenSharing=true does not currently work with Firefox.
Problem is down to Firefox insisting that Screen Sharing can only be triggered by user action and not via script. Related issue: Screen sharing fail on Firefox with config startScreenSharing = true · Issue #5119 · jitsi/jitsi-meet · GitHub
Not sure if there is currently a way around that limitation.
