Hi! I’ve been using Chrome/Chromium for meet.jit.si, but it’s been crashing with Jitsi too often, so I’ve switched to Firefox. Unfortunately, Firefox doesn’t seem to work very well with microphones. I’m using Debian GNU/Linux, but my friends with Microsoft Windows 10 and Apple MacOS are having similar troubles.
- Microphones options (the chevron to the upper right of the Mic button) are greyed out and inaccessible.
- Builtin array microphones sound terrible.
a. On Windows (with an Dell XPS-13 9310 with latest OS updates) there are loud whooshing noises.
b. On MacOS (with an M1 iMac, again latest OS) the volume of the person’s voice goes down, unpredictably, but perhaps having to do with if they are facing the wrong direction or are off camera.
These bugs do not occur when the microphone is accessed using Chromium/Chrome, however other video conference programs seem to work okay with Firefox, so I’m thinking there must be something Jitsi Meet could do differently.
Are these known bugs?
