Error in Jitsi + Docker while starting recording

I just installed a Jitsi server on my debian server using the docker image, but I still encounter the following error while starting to record the video :

Welcome to the forum.

Did you install Jibri?

No, do I have to install Jibri? Here is the installation I had followed:

You need Jibri for recording.

but do I have to install jibri independently of the docker. Because the docker image already contains Jibri

have you any idea please, i’m still blocked

As advised, you have to install Jibri. Jitsi’s docker image does not come with Jibri pre-installed and I checked the link you referenced, it says nothing about Jibri either.

checkout this repo. Yes, you have to run it separately and it requires at least 4Gb Memory and 4vCPU if streaming in 720p resolution.

which docker image are you talking about?

Please note that there is a different image for running jibri i.e jitsi/jibri:latest

After install jibri this is my error :

What are resources for this server?

I have 10G RAM and 8 CPU


It seems like chrome doesn’t work correctly. You may connect to jibri desktop and check what is going on using the following method

what should i do once connected to the desktop server ??
