I’m wondering if anyone can point me to a known issue on this:
I’m developing a custom Jitsi client (www.relm.us) and noticed that when using Firefox, other people in the room experience my feed intermittently. We hopped over to meet.jit.si to test, and sure enough, Firefox video feed would cut off after the first few seconds and freeze the frame. Occasionally it restores video for a few seconds and then goes back to a frozen frame.
To make sure this was not a network issue, I opened both Chrome and Firefox at the same time on my laptop and joined a conference on meet.jit.si. Chrome sent the video data to other participants and they reported consistently being able to see “Chrome me”. I could see from the Chrome browser that the “Firefox me” was frozen. From the Firefox browser, “Chrome me” was fine. In other words, even on the same machine, Firefox is consistently showing intermittent video on another browser (Chrome), but the reverse is not true.
I believe the issue has been happening for about a month (possibly longer).
I’m using Firefox 80.0.1.
