Guests can't start recording/livestream


I’ve been trying to upgrade my jibri instance using the debian packages and the tutorial.
And I can see the recording user, but both recording and livestream options are grayed out saying that i’m a guest, when i’m a moderator.

Have you bumped into this issue?


The only error I can see in the logs is this,

2018-07-14 11:08:34.257 SEVERE: [1] org.jitsi.jibri.api.xmpp.XmppApi.start() Error connecting to xmpp environment: org.jivesoftware.smack.XMPPException$XMPPErrorException: XMPP error reply received from XMPPError: remote-server-not-found - cancel![jibri|690x450]

On previous documentation versions seems like, was referenced by

So far I only see this,

Would you recommend to start the installation from scratch?


Have you configured tokens in your deployment?
Do you have this property enabled in your config.js enableUserRolesBasedOnToken ?


Oh, no, I mean I have them, but as false

enableUserRolesBasedOnToken: false,

Here the /etc/jitsi/meet/ file:

Was RolesBasedOnToken present with the previous (python+bash) jibri infrastructure?


Could I relay on the info exposed here on this topic,


After re-arranging some old files from legacy jibri and fixing some variable at:

recordingType: 'jibri',
//    enableRecording: true,
fileRecordingsEnabled: true,
liveStreamingEnabled: true,

Seems like that was my issue, it is now working.

Thanks for all your time and guidance \o/!
